(June 14, 2019)–In his second start for trainer John Sadler, Higher Power tried turf for the first time and controlled proceedings with aplomb, as he took Friday’s $77,000 Santa Anita allowance feature under Drayden Van Dyke by a half length.  Owned by Hronis Racing, LLC, the striking 4-year-old colt by Medaglia d’Oro added blinkers today and got a flat mile in 1:34.63.Breaking from the rail in a field of six horses three and up, Higher Power, who came off a fifth place finishing going a mile and one quarter in the Grade I Gold Cup at Santa Anita May 27, made an easy lead and was in total command throughout, holding Ritzy A.

What a win!A double from Heung-Min Son – including one in the third minute of stoppage time – gave Spurs a fortunate win against an unlucky Aston Villa.Toby Alderweireld put through his own net to give the Midlands side hope just nine minutes in before slamming in a delightful half-volley to make amends before the half-hour mark.Sonny slotted away a rebound from his own missed penalty to put Spurs 2-1 up before Bjorn Engels headed the home side level with 35 minutes to go.But Dean Smith’s relegation threatened side could not quite hold on for a valuable point as Engels gifted Son the ball with just seconds left on the clock and the South Korean raced through on goal to slot home and break Villa’s hearts.Son became the first Asian player to score 50 Prem goals with the late winner that saw his team move to fifth.Jose Mourinho also joked his old Man Utd side should be awarded the 2017/18 Prem title after finishing second behind FFP breach rivals Man City.Spurs welcome RB Leipzig in the Champions League on Wednesday night next time out. William Pugh17 Feb 2020, 10:48 pmSTEVEN BERGWIJN – 8A really quiet first 35 minutes but came to life towards the end of the first half before winning a penalty.His pace caused real issues for the hosts with a number of driving runs at the Villa defence.Could be a really impressive signing judging on performances so far.HEUNG-MIN SON – 8Showed brilliant composure right at the end to seal the win when the pressure was on.Grabbed two goals but could have easily had four or five with the amount of chances he had.Villa struggled to contain him.William Pugh17 Feb 2020, 10:10 pmLUCAS MOURA – 6Not his best day. Appeared to be playing deeper than usual and desperately tried to influence proceedings.A few nice touches posed little threat in front of goal.DELE ALLI – 6Managed to find so much space in the hole and did everything right apart from his final ball.Should have had his name on the scoresheet but was wasteful in front of goal.Spurned a great chance in the second half and appeared to leave his shooting boots at home.William Pugh17 Feb 2020, 10:10 pmBEN DAVIES – 6Was probably the most assured of all the defenders and made a goal-saving block in the first 45 minutes.Mourinho didn’t give him much of a licence to get forward so didn’t influence the game at the other end of the field.HARRY WINKS – 6Tough afternoon for Winks in the heart of midfield.He would’ve liked to have put more of a stamp on the game and get on the ball more. Grew into the contest as it went on.ERIC DIER – 5Barely influenced proceedings although made a crucial piece of defending in the first half to deny Villa doubling their advantage.Was hooked off on 60 minutes.William Pugh17 Feb 2020, 9:33 pmDAVINSON SANCHEZ – 6Solid if not unspectacular for the visitors. Made a couple of vital interceptions in the box to deny the hosts.His long ball at the end assisted Son with the help of Engels.TOBY ALDERWEIRELD – 4An absolute rollercoaster of an afternoon for the centre-back.It was a dreadful piece of defending for the own goal but redeemed himself with a cracking finish at the other end.Was then beaten to the header for Villa’s equaliser.William Pugh17 Feb 2020, 9:09 pmHUGO LLORIS – 5/10Bit of a stinker in the opening 45 minutes. Didn’t cover himself in glory with Villa’s opener and then got lucky with numerous other opportunities.Looked more assured in the second period but kept getting caught in two minds from Villa corners.SERGE AURIER – 5Was given the runaround by Jack Grealish throughout the first half.Remains a real liability in Spurs’ back four and could barely get close to the Villa star.Did improve in the second period and was a threat down the right.William Pugh17 Feb 2020, 8:50 pmTOTTENHAM PLAYER RATINGSSPURS continued their push for Champions League qualification after a cracking contest at Villa Park.Heung-min Son made Bjorn Engels pay for a howler in the dying seconds of the contest to seal a dramatic 3-2 win.Some questionable defending throughout allowed Villa to take the lead through a Toby Alderweireld own goal.The Belgian then scored a brilliant equaliser before Son pounced on his missed penalty rebound to put the visitors ahead.Engels then headed Villa level before his shocker allowed Son to grab his second and seal a priceless victory.Here SunSport’s Richard Forrester dishes out Spurs’ player ratings as they move up to fifth…Joshua Graham17 Feb 2020, 7:32 pmMOUR THAN ENOUGH CHANCESSpurs boss Jose Mourinho interrupted an interview with match winner Son Heung-min after Tottenham’s last gasp win away at Aston Villa. The South Korean star bagged a brace at Villa Park but squandered multiple chances to the displeasure of his Portuguese manager. Mourinho was decidedly more relaxed than he would have been if Spurs had failed to take all three points. He interrupted Son’s interview and – with a smile on his face – said: “Are you speaking about the goals he scored or the goals he missed?”Son’s first goal came from the rebound of his missed penalty after a terrific save from former Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina. His second came right on the stroke of full-time to break Villa hearts and spare Mourinho’s blushes. Joshua Graham17 Feb 2020, 6:48 pmGREAT WORK SONSpurs star Son Heung-min has become the first Asian player to score 50 Premier League goals. It has taken the South Korean ace 151 games to reach the impressive landmark – averaging a goal every three matches.The 27-year-old is the biggest Asian football star in the Premier League and is a hero back home. He has eclipsed Manchester United’s former star Park Ji-sung who scored 19 goals and notched 21 assists during his 154 Premier League appearances. Joshua Graham17 Feb 2020, 5:57 pmKANE WE COPE?Spurs boss Jose Mourinho again hinted that his side were struggling without talisman and England captain Harry Kane. Speaking after his side scored a last-minute winner to beat Aston Villa, Mourinho said: “The problem with Son and Lucas, the problem with especially these two guys is they have to play 90 minutes every game. “That’s the problem and if they run out of fuel then we are in trouble but their quality as players is fantastic, their attitude towards the team is absolutely incredible and I am so, so pleased for them.“A team without Harry [Kane] is finding obviously difficulties, the difficulties are the nature of the Premier League, but in the middle of the difficulties we are finding a different way to play football.“We are finding a different way to create opportunities and to score enough goals to put ourselves in a position to fight for a good position in the table.”Load more entries… TOTTENHAM started a busy week off in style, as Son Heung-min netted late to hand them victory over Aston Villa.In his post-match press conference, Jose Mourinho joked he should have won a fourth Premier League title, following the announcement of Manchester City’s Champions League ban.Meanwhile, Man United’s Chris Smalling is wanted at Spurs after impressing on loan at Roma.Follow all the latest gossip and updates from North London below…Jake Lambourne18 Feb 2020, 8:30 pmSAINT NICHOLASSky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas believes Spurs will beat RB Leipzig 3-2 in the Champions League.He said: ” Again, to be fair to Tottenham, they did not deserve to beat Southampton. They did not deserve it against Aston Villa. Mistakes were given to them and they took advantage, but they are getting results. “Jose Mourinho’s face is no disguise for the way they are performing. Including Manchester United, he has not dealt with a worse defence, in terms of understanding what the shape and what the demands are. He just has to see what happens. If he upsets them, it could be a long way back. He is caught in an awkward place.“RB Leipzig got an excellent draw at Bayern the other week, and they have goals in them that is for sure, with pace to burn. Christopher Nkunku and Tino Werner will cause a lot of problems. They all have a great working attitude and real assets. It is yet another awkward game. “They should have beaten Bayern, so there are promising signs. Leipzig will play on the counter-attack, but I can only see goals. It will be an open game but Jose knows he must get a win from this one, and I think they will just about get there.”Jake Lambourne18 Feb 2020, 8:00 pmIN THE DARKRB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann will leave his players in the Champions League dark at Spurs tomorrow.American midfielder Tyler Adams revealed Nagelsmann keeps his squad on edge about who will be playing until the last minute.It means Nagelsmann will give his players the starting line-up until as little as 30 minutes before kick-off – after the fans inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium have been told.Adams said: “It was a bit of a change when he came in because we only get the line-up 30-45 minutes before a game. That’s a bit of a close run.“Other coaches I have had told us the team up to two days before a game, so it is different. When I tell people that is his way, they always react the same way, that it is unusual.“But it does mean nobody can be complacent during the week. We all know we really have to work hard every day if we want to be in the team.”Jake Lambourne18 Feb 2020, 7:31 pmSON OF A GUN This guy doesn’t know how to cross.

Lloris said: “I don’t think it’s about luck. “If you look at some games earlier in the season, we were very unlucky. “We know we can do much better. “Especially at this period of the season, only the points matter. “We had a difficult game. “We have to give a lot of credit to Villa but we never gave up. “We expected a tough game, it was a big battle played in difficult conditions with a lot of wind.“There are a lot of positive things, we still need to correct the negative ones but we have to be happy with the result.Joe Ball17 Feb 2020, 1:36 pmCP-ARGHHTottenham legend Glenn Hoddle revealed he broke seven ribs during eight minutes of CPR following his heart attack in 2018.Hoddle suffered a cardiac arrest in BT Sport’s East London studios and his life was saved by sound engineer Simon Daniels’ heroic actions.

Narrow loss to Kangaroos will do: Bennett

first_imgBennett named seven NRL-based players in his 24-strong squad, leaving out George Burgess but including his brothers Tom and Sam, along with James Graham, Chris Heighington, Josh Hodgson, Elliott Whitehead and Gareth Widdop.Asked to give a run-down on the form of the Australia-based players, Bennett said: “It’s been a bit mixed and varied.”I left George out because I didn’t think he was playing well enough, Tom had a pretty fair season and Sam always gives his best.”Chris Heighington played pretty well at Cronulla – I like what he brings – and the two guys at Canberra, Josh and Elliott, probably didn’t play as well as last year but they were still pretty good.”Gareth Widdop was probably the player of the competition until he got injured and, although he didn’t come back as well, he is still a very valuable and talented player.”Bennett, who took soundings from assistant coaches Denis Betts, Paul Anderson, Paul Sculthorpe and Paul Wellens before finalising his squad, included just two uncapped players in Warrington second-rower Ben Currie and St Helens prop Alex Walmsley.”The four coaches gave me their teams and we were pretty much all on the same page,” Bennett said. “We’ve got a very good balance, some very experienced players and some on the way up.” Bennett has joined up with his players at their training camp in Perth, where they are preparing for their first group game against the defending champions in Melbourne on Friday, October 27.England also play Lebanon and France, with three teams going through to the quarter-finals.Speaking to OuRLeague, a membership scheme run by the Rugby Football League, Bennett appears to suggest his team might be better prepared to beat Australia later in the tournament.”We’re not worried about the result, the emphasis will be on how we play and what we can manage against them, making sure we’re competitive all night,” he said.”If we get beaten by a few points, well that will give us confidence to go onto the next stage, and if we get to play a final five weeks later, that’s when you want to be at your best.”last_img read more

Tottenham presses to sign Bale today; Madrid discards it

first_imgThe long-lasting injury of Harry kane would have contributed to accelerate the purchase intention, although in principle Daniel Levy, who would have moved to the Spanish capital to meet with Florentino Pérez, would have set an expenditure limit for the lead of twelve million euros after the acquisition of Steven Bergwijn, which implies that they do not have liquidity except for a large sale that does not seem likely. Nevertheless, sources consulted by ACE They see it practically impossible for the operation to be completed due to lack of time and difficulties in raising the necessary money. In this way, the only possibility that would remain in the air would be the transfer, although player and club would not see it with good eyes. Premier League* Data updated as of January 31, 2020 eleven LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 31, 2020 The Real Madrid player has been on the exit ramp in each market for several seasons, but finally the interest of all clubs has remained nothing. Your exequipo, now run by Jose Mourinho, wants to bring it back to go up in the Premier League and keep trying to conquer the Champions League. Further, Zinedine Zidane, in the press conference prior to the derby against the Atlético de MadridHe has stated that he does not see that it is possible for the Welsh footballer to leave the white discipline during the last day of the transfer market: “Gareth is with us and I’m going to count on him. I don’t contemplate this possibility.”Jonathan Barnett, a Welsh agent, has also jumped on stage. Asked by the Daily Mail about the possibility of Bale leaving today for the Premier, he returned to pull his usual vocabulary: “It’s bullshit”.Gareth Bale has three goals and two assists in the fifteen games he has played so far, but his departure would leave a huge gap in the salary field to bring players ahead of time. We will have to wait a few hours to know how serious the Tottenham is going for Bale in this market, but what is certain is that its price would not approach at all the limit that Daniel Levy marked a few days ago. There are few hours left for the winter transfer window to close and a bombing that affects Real Madrid can still take place. And according to The times, Tottenham wants to sign Gareth Bale on the last market day.last_img read more

The Euro Cup will be postponed until 2021, but it will not be the only international event affected by the coronavirus crises. CONMEBOL has also decided to postpone the Copa América, which was to be held in Argentina and Colombia between June 12 and July 12, next year.
