Sceaux stands out in Arkle list

first_img Willie Mullins’ charge is a general 4-7 chance ahead of the race but he has not scared off many rivals, with the likes of Paul Nicholls’ Vibrato Valtat, the Nicky Henderson-trained Josses Hill and Gordon Elliott’s Clarcam still in the mix. Mullins has extra strings to his bow in Vautour and Adriana Des Mottes, while Mick Channon’s Sgt Reckless is another of the leading home hopes. Melodic Rendezvous finished seventh in the Champion Hurdle last year but may try his Festival luck over fences. God’s Own was a Grade One winner at Punchestown last May and may bid to add a Festival win to his CV. Chris Pea Green, Cold March, Court Minstrel, Dunraven Storm, Sail By The Sea, Smashing, Ted Veale, Three Kingdoms, Top Gamble and Turn Over Sivola are also still in the mix. Hot favourite Un De Sceaux heads a list of 19 horses to stand their ground in the Racing Post Arkle Challenge Trophy at the Cheltenham Festival next Tuesday.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Afcon 2017 qualifiers: Dauda warns Black Stars against complacency

first_imgComplacency is the watchword for Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Dauda as the Black Stars face three countries in Afcon 2017 qualifying.The national side has been drawin against Mauritius, Rwanda and Mozambique – a group which has widely been seen as easy across Ghana.“Now every country knows how to play now so we have to focus on qualifying for the Afcon,” he said on Wednesday.Fatau has plenty experience with featuring against teams seen as lower in stature to Ghana, with the most famous perhaps being the loss to Burkina Faso in the Afcon 2013 semifinal in South Africa.All he wants from Ghana over the six games is tunnel vision.“They know that they are coming to face Ghana so they will prepare very and make every effort so it’s not going to be easy at all,” Dauda said in the interview with Metro TV. Ghana start the journey to make another Afcon with Mauritius on the weekend of June 12-14, then an away trip to Rwanda in September and finally host Mozambique in March 2016.The reverse legs will start in March and finish in September next year.–Follow Gary on Twitter: @garyalsmithlast_img read more
