Regally Bold to atone in Caymanas Park feature

first_imgREGALLY BOLD should make amends for her recent disqualification by winning today’s 10th race over 1500 metres for native and imported three-year-olds (non winners of two) at Caymanas Park.Trained by Harry Jaghai for owners the Houston Stables, the lightly raced American bred 3-y-o filly came through a furlong out to beat the useful ACTION MAN by four lengths over 1300 metres on August 29, only to be disqualified following a stewards’ inquiry, this for causing interference to ACTION MAN (awarded race) on the inside at the half mile and placed second.REGALLY BOLD, however, won on merit in the fairly good time of 1:20.4. There was a lot to like about the manner in which she led a furlong out, going on to beat ACTION MAN and SILVER CLOUD, who renews rivalry today.Obviously, she looks a better animal than any of her eight opponents and with in-form Wesley Henry again in the saddle, should gain quick compensation, despite the presence of the Wayne DaCosta-trained SILVER CLIOUD, ANOTHER BULLET and VINTAGE RUCKUS, her main rivals.impressive winREGALLY BOLD continues to look sharp in her preparation and should take command leaving the half mile for an impressive win from the convenient mark of 54.0kg.Also on the 11-race programme are the round five renewal of the Winnie Anglin Memorial Cup for native bred two-year-old fillies and the eighth running of the Donald Tankoy Cup over 1300 metres, in memory of the former long serving executive of Caymanas Track Limited, who died on September 10, 2008.The Wayne DaCosta trained debutante PERFECT ASSET (Robert Halledeen up) has looked well forward at exercise and gets the nod over Philip Feanny’s SORRENTINO’S STAR in the Winnie Anglin Memorial, while STERRI’S CHOICE (Omar Walker) and DOOLAHIN (Shane Ellis) should fight out the finish of the Donald Tankoy Memorial Cup. Both races have attracted nine starters.Other firm fancies on the card are down in class LOVETTA JONES in the opening race for $180,000 claimers, RUNNER RUNNER to go one better in the second, LIGHT BRIGADE in the sixth, GLORIOUS CAUSE in the eighth and CLASSY PROSPECT in the closing race.last_img read more

Newcastle should NOT sack Steve McClaren, former Magpies star tells talkSPORT

first_imgLee Bowyer has told talkSPORT Newcastle should stick with manager Steve McClaren.The Magpies are sitting 19th in the Premier League after three consecutive defeats – the latest at the hands of relegation rivals Bournemouth on Saturday.Fans are getting increasingly restless and board members Lee Charnley, Bob Moncur and Graham Carr met on Monday to discuss McClaren’s future.But Bowyer believes the club should resist calls to dispense with McClaren’s services.The former St James’ Park star claims there has been a noticeable improvement in the team since December and he is convinced they have the quality to survive under the ex-England boss.Asked on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast whether the club should make a managerial change, he said: “No. I think they should hang in there with Steve.“After Christmas they made a couple of additions and I think they are good additions. They turned the corner at one stage. Ok, it wasn’t a good result at the weekend and they are still in the bottom three, but I do think they turned a corner.“The games I have seen on the telly they are at least working hard and before Christmas I don’t think they were. [Jonjo] Shelvey is a good buy – they have got someone in there now that will put their foot in and get the crowd behind them.”last_img read more
