York Mets and Pittsburgh, which a - hfy962464 - 03-12-2018

Alex Hammond supplied us with the big-race winner Profitable last week. Kevin Mchale Jersey . Can the Sky Sports News HQ racing expert do it again? Awtaad lowered the colours of Galileo Gold on Saturday but do you think he would come out on top if the pair met again?Awtaad was impressive wasnt he? He seems the complete racehorse as he has a great attitude, loads of speed and tons of ability. Id like to be on him when the pair next face off thats for sure. Its fair to say Frankie Dettori had to sit and suffer on Galileo Gold whereas Chris Hayes was able to ride the race he wanted to on the winner, but regardless of that I think the Irish Guineas winner has the edge. Awtaad has now won his last four starts and is improving at a rate of knots and if the pair meet in the St Jamess Palace Stakes Id rather be on the Kevin Prendergast-trained colt; he looks by far the most straightforward of the two. He is currently 3/1 with Sky Bet for the one-mile Group One at the Royal meeting whereas Galileo Gold is 9/2. They may both have to play second fiddle to The Gurkha regardless - his performance in France looked very impressive. Skiffle won the Height Of Fashion Stakes at Goodwood and now looks like being supplemented for the Investec Oaks but do you think that is the right move and is Minding vulnerable after her defeat on Sunday?We thought the three-year-old fillies looked much superior to the colts, but the Oaks door has been left ajar after the defeat of Minding behind Jet Setting in the Irish 1000 Guineas. Minding is still favourite for the Epsom Classic, but has now been pushed out to 6/5 with Sky Bet. Its probable that the incident as the gates opened that saw her bang her head had a bearing on the outcome of the race and its also true that the ground was testing enough for her at the Curragh, but with the doubt over her stamina for the mile and a half at Epsom I can see why other trainers are happy to try to take her on. The Height Of Fashion (formerly the Lupe) is a race that has had an influence on the Oaks in the past and Skiffle has been introduced at 10/1 with Sky Bet for Epsom. Charlie Applebys filly is improving fast and as this was only her second outing youd have to expect further improvement. She completely cocked up the start on debut, rearing and missing the break, but she was much more savvy at Goodwood and I can see the attraction of adding her to the Oaks field. She is guaranteed to stay, being a daughter of Dubawi out of a mare that was useful up to 1m4f and is a half sister to a horse that was also effective over middle distances. So a lots of ticks there and lets be honest, the £30,000 itll cost to add her to the field isnt going to make a dent in the Sheikh Mohammed coffers!Has anything else caught your eye for Epsom following Breakfast With The Stars on Tuesday and if you had to have one ante-post bet at this stage, what would it be? Well, much of the talk after Breakfast With The Stars was of the Sir Michael Stoute-trained Ulysses. Sir Michael isnt usually one to give much away, but he has spoken well of this beautifully bred colt who has now shortened into 8/1 with Sky Bet for the Derby. He had one run at two, going into winter quarters with an encouraging sixth in a mile maiden at Newbury behind Algometer. That horse has gone on at three and has some decent form so far, including a second place to Midterm in Sandowns Classic Trial and winning a Listed race at Goodwood. Ulysses reappeared this term in a hot Leicester maiden finishing second and then got off the mark in a 10-furlong Newbury maiden earlier this month. So, back to that pedigree; hes by Galileo who won the English and Irish Derbies in 2001 and is out of a mare called Light Shift, who won the Oaks at Epsom for Sir Henry Cecil in 2007. Derby pedigrees surely dont get much better than that and Andrea Atzeni will ride him in the big race. I also have plenty of respect for Cloth Of Stars who motored round the course on Tuesday morning and is trained by Andre Fabre. He is 7/1 third favourite and needs to be supplemented at a cost of £75,000.Clive Cox has another smart sprinter on his hands in Profitable, is the Temple Stakes winner on your radar for Royal Ascot?How pleased was I to see Profitable earn followers of the blog a few quid on Saturday?! Delighted! Meccas Angel was being supported as if defeat was out of the question after the rain had turned the ground in her favour; but I was screaming home Clive Coxs four-year-old and my prayers were answered. As predicted, he has improved for another winter on his back and looks a force to be reckoned with this season. Granted he carried Meccas Angel across the track in the final furlong, but no momentum was lost and the stewards decided it hadnt made a difference. I was sure Profitable needed a bit of ease in the ground, but his trainer said afterwards he thinks he will be even better on a quicker surface. This is great news for his likely Royal Ascot aspirations and going forward for the rest of the season as he is clearly versatile on that front. Hes now 8/1 co second favourite for the Kings Stand next month and as a sprinter on the upgrade, I wouldnt be disappointed if I had an ante-post voucher in my clutches.Theres another big card at Haydock this weekend, what should we be backing?Well, after last weekend Haydock is my new favourite track, so lets try and find another winner or two! There are three Group races that should be pretty competitive. The Group Two Sandy Lane Stakes is the feature with a strong entry for the six-furlong contest. Classic winning trainer Hugo Palmer could have a good day at the Lancashire track and his Gifted Master is clear favourite on the ante-post book. At 2/1 with Sky Bet though I think we can find a bit more value elsewhere. Having said that, he hasnt seen the back of another horse since last June and despite being a bit quirky is clearly very talented. He is already 6/1 second favourite for the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot. A few of his rivals on Saturday could also have the Royal Ascot race on their radar, including Buratino, who is dropping back in trip having failed to stay a mile in the 2000 Guineas. He also has the beating of Air Force Blue as a juvenile when winning the Coventry. Remarkable went into a few notebooks when runner up to Log Out Island in a Listed race at Newbury this month and John Gosdens son of Pivotal looks a horse on the up. At 9/1 for Saturdays race, he could run a good race if the forecast rain arrives. La Rioja is another unexposed likely improver at three. Henry Candys filly hasnt run yet this season, but was a Group Three winner at Salisbury on her last start. She is another horse that will need the rain to fall. Jim Bolgers Smash Williams is potentially a very nice horse too. He is one of a strong entry for Irish-trained horses and looked exciting as a juvenile. Its a very good renewal of the race and I dont have a really strong view at the moment, but if the rain comes then Ill be backing Remarkable to cause an upset.Then we have two Group Three races to look forward to, the Pinnacle Stakes for fillies and mares over an extended 1m3f, and the Timeform Jury Stakes over seven furlongs. Last years winner Miss Marjurie is among the entries for the Pinnacle Stakes and trainer Denis Coakley has snapped up the services of Oisin Murphy. However, last year she won a Listed race at Goodwood en-route to this, but was disappointing in the same race this time round. The powerful combination of John Gosden and Frankie Dettori look like they will be hard to beat here with Journey. She wasnt disgraced in finishing third to Beautiful Romance and Koora in the Middleton Stakes at Yorks Dante meeting and a reproduction of that will be good enough here. She just ran a bit free at York and that may have cost her but the fillies that finished in front of her that day are top class and it doesnt look like theres anything of that quality entered at Haydock.The Timeform Jury Stakes looks more open and has attracted a strong entry. Home Of The Brave represents trainer Hugo Palmer and is Sky Bets ante-post favourite at 9/2. He was snapped up by Godolphin after his reappearance win at Leicester last month, but was unable to represent his new owners in the Lockinge Stakes after the ground turned too soft. There is plenty to recommend him providing Haydock dont get too much rain before Saturday. William Haggas horses are running well and his Adaay is another for the shortlist. He was a bit disappointing over a mile on his return to action at Sandown last time out, but I think a drop back to seven will be just the job and on the best of his form he is right up there with a big shout. He won the Sandy Lane Stakes on this card last year beating Limato, which is very good form. Unlike Home Of The Brave he wont mind a drop of moisture in the ground and at this stage hell do for me.  Also See: Live results service Full racecards Get Sky Sports Boston Celtics Jerseys . Messis 75th-minute goal answered some of the criticism the clubs all-time leading scorer had received for his lacklustre performances in the teams recent losses in the league, Champions League and Copa del Rey final. Danny Ainge Jersey . When Reyes signed a US$106-million, six-year deal with Miami last month, there was speculation Ramirez was unhappy about being supplanted at short. But new manager Ozzie Guillen sold Ramirez on the idea. http://www.authenticcelticsproshop.com/John-Havlicek-Jersey/ .com) - The Pittsburgh Penguins will try to complete a sweep of the Washington Capitals when the clubs cap a quick home-and-home series Tuesday night in the Steel City.ORLANDO, Fla. - Marlon Byrd moved across Pennsylvania to Philadelphia. Tampa Bay is considering daring moves, and so is Texas. And the New York Yankees, as always, plan to be in the mix for some big-time deals. As the off-season market for trades and free-agent signings gets underway, Major League Baseball is considering some pretty radical changes for the entire sport next season. Expanded instant replay for umpires calls is virtually certain to be in place by opening day, and theres a chance a rule could be adopted to prevent runners from bowling over catchers at the plate. "Theres a pretty good possibility that something eventually will happen," MLB executive vice-president Joe Torre said Tuesday on the second day of the annual general managers meetings. "Whether its going to be soon enough to have it done this coming year, that remains to be seen. But I dont think its impossible." Outside the formal meeting room, Byrd and Philadelphia agreed to a $16 million, two-year contract, a huge step up from the $800,000 the outfielder earned this year from the New York Mets and Pittsburgh Pirates. And catcher Brayan Pena finalized a two-year deal with the Cincinnati Reds worth $2,275,000. They were the first of the 168 major league free agents to switch teams this off-season. Talk of limiting contact at the plate was the days most interesting development, one that could make Lou Brocks shoulder-to-shoulder collision with Bill Freehan during the 1968 World Series and Pete Roses bruising hit on Ray Fosse in the 1970 All-Star game relics of baseball history, like the dead-ball era. Torre said a written proposal will be developed that will be discussed when GMs gather again during the winter meetings, to be held at Lake Buena Vista from Dec. 9-12. "There are college rules where you have to slide. Im not saying thats what youre going to do," Torre said. "The players are bigger, stronger, faster. Its like in other sports. Theyve made adjustments and rules in other sports for that reason, to protect people." Torre said collisions when pitchers cover the plate on wild pitches and passed balls also are an issue. He planned to discuss the matter Wednesday with baseballs rules committee. A change for 2014 would need the approval of the players association. "Suffice it to say, the players have some thoughts of their own regarding home-plate collisions as well as a number of other topics," union deputy executive director Tony Clark, a former All-Star himself, said in an email to The Associated Press. "Well be addressing them all when we meet next month." Torre said agreements with players and umpires on expanded video review should be in place by January. "We expect to be all on the same page by the time we need to have it," he said. Virtually all umpires calls other than balls and strikes, checked swings and some foul tips will be reviewable. The system was tested last week during Arizona Fall League games, with two major league umpires reviewing video and making the final call. Baseball started using video review in 2008 but limited it to home run calls. Owners likely will give their go-ahead Thursday for funding and then approve the rules when they meet in January. "Im sure theyll do as much testing as they think is feasible, but ultimately theyll probably go with what they have," New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said. Gordon Hayward Jersey. "There probably will be bugs. ... It might be a little rough at the beginning, but I think that things will work out thereafter." GMs are spending much of this week in meetings, finding out which players might be available in trades and what prices agents are seeking for their clients. "Its not the most conducive time to be doing anything," Oakland GM Billy Beane said. With MLB receiving a large increase next year in revenue from national broadcasting contracts, agents are asking for more at this early point in the off-season. "I think its the agents job always to try to get as much as they can get, since theyve been part of the MLB landscape," Dodgers GM Ned Colletti said. "I dont think its ever changed." With 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner David Price two years from free agency, low-payroll Tampa Bay is exploring trades. The Rays $65 million payroll at the end of the season was 28th among the 30 clubs. "We just cant be afraid to make bold moves," executive vice-president Andrew Friedman said. "Its almost become a cliche of one eye on the present, one eye on the future. Its absolutely our operating philosophy. Its something that we have to do." Texas also could make a big trade splash. Rangers GM Jon Daniels will consider offers for middle infielders Ian Kinsler and Elvis Andrus to clear a starting spot for 20-year-old Jurickson Profar. "I dont think at this point were going to go down the same path we did last year where Jurickson broke in as a utility player," Daniels said. "Weve got three guys at the big league level. Weve got another two guys at Double-A in Luis Sardinas and Rougned Odor that we view as potentially impact big league guys, and I think the industry does, so were not doing our jobs if we dont at least explore it." While the Rangers are interested in re-signing Nelson Cruz, closer Joe Nathan could be headed elsewhere, perhaps Detroit. Byrd already knows his destination. The 36-year-old outfielder hit a career-high 24 homers last season for the New York Mets and Pittsburgh, which acquired him on Aug. 27. He batted .364 with one homer and five RBIs in six playoff games after hitting .291 during the season with 88 RBIs, one short of his career best. "Marlon adds a significant upgrade both offensively and defensively to our outfield," Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said in a statement. "He has been particularly productive against left-handed pitching, which was a serious challenge for us this past season." Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner said a determination of Alex Rodriguezs grievance to overturn a 211-game suspension wont deter the team from filling its holes. Rodriguez has a $25 million salary next year and could earn an additional $6 million payment if he hits six home runs and ties Willie Mays at 660. Re-signing second baseman Robinson Cano is a top priority. "Even with Alex as our third baseman, weve got a fair amount of money to start spending to try to fill the holes," Steinbrenner said, "and thats what were going to do."
