Long Running Train set for smooth ride in Caymanas feature

first_imgHaving finished a fighting second to top stayer PERFECT NEIGHBOUR in the grade one Harry Jackson Memorial Cup over 2,400 metres on Boxing Day, the American filly LONG RUNNING TRAIN should go one better in the open allowance mile at Caymanas Park today.Trained by ‘most improved trainer’ nominee Harry Parsard, LONG RUNNING TRAIN returns down in class with only 50.0kg under former champion Wesley Henry, and with a mile more to her liking, is confidently expected to lead home old rivals CAMPESINO, the recent CTL Fan Appreciation Trophy winner ALL CORRECT, and former St Leger and Gold Cup winner COMMANDING CHIEF in a 10-strong field.Before the Harry Jackson Memorial, the 4-y-o filly by Flower Alley out of Cuz You Never Know finished a good third to PHINEAS and CAMPESINO in the fast-run Gladiator Trophy over 1,400 metres on December 19 but had won back-to-back races in October and November, the latter over 1,300 metres in overnight company with a bit in hand.Reporting in good nick for this race, LONG RUNNING TRAIN, given her fine turn of foot, should prove too strong for the front-running CAMPESINO, ALL CORRECT, and COMMANDING CHIEF (working well) in the closing stages.Also on the 11-race card are the 3-y-o maiden special Eight Thirty Sprint, to be run in two divisions over the straight-five course and the 3-y-o and up overnight allowance race over 1,400 for the Allan E. ‘Billy’ Williams Memorial Trophy, to be contested by 11 starters, including top contenders BRAWN and MOM’S STUDENT.Recent winner BRAWN (Aaron Chatrie) is tipped to repeat for trainer Gary Subratie in the ‘Billy’ Williams Memorial. The well-advanced debutante PINELOPE (Shane Ellis up), from the Dwight Chen stables, gets the nod over fellow debutante DANCING QUEEN in division one of the Eight Thirty Sprint, while it should be POISON GAS (Omar Walker) in division two following her promising debut behind GLOBAL recently.last_img read more

PSG slap £35m price tag on Manchester United and Manchester City target

first_img Blaise Maituidi 1 Paris Saint-Germain have slapped a £35m price tag on Manchester City and Manchester United target Blaise Matuidi.The Premier League giants have been linked with the tough-tackling Frenchman, who is under contract until 2018.The 27-year-old is a key member of the PSG first team and has appeared in all but two of their 28 Ligue 1 games so far this season.However reports in France have suggested that Matuidi could be sold this summer – but only if a team is willing to splash out £35m to sign him.United are expected to be busy in the summer transfer window and a commanding central midfielder will be one of Louis Van Gaal’s priorities.City, meanwhile, are long-term admirers of Matuidi and could afford PSG’s asking price if they decide the time is right to land him.last_img read more

AFTER 40 YEARS, DONEGAL WOMAN TO FLY FROM AUSTRALIA TO TELL OF ABUSE AT HANDS OF NUNS

first_imgA CO Donegal woman who was moved by nuns from Inishowen to Derry where she later suffered abuse is to fly back to Ireland to give evidence at a tribunal investigating abuse in the North.An inquiry in Co Down has heard how young children from the Republic were sometimes transferred to homes run by nuns in Derry, and children sent the other way to Fahan.In the Donegal case, the woman later moved to Australia under a migrant scheme. The Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry is hearing about two homes run by the Nazareth sisters at Termonbacca and at Bishop Street in Derry.Christine Smith, a senior counsel for the inquiry, in one case a child born Donegal was transferred to a home in Derry and later moved to Australia under the migrant scheme. The woman is given anonymity by the tribunal.Ms Smith said allegations will be heard, dealing with accounts of physical and sexual abuse, of inadequate food, force feeding and of children who were separated from their siblings and not told of their existence.In some cases children who were sick were made to eat their own vomit. Ms Quinn also said delays by the Nazareth Order in submitting evidence to the inquiry had caused difficulties, with some material only handed over in recent days.Public hearings at the inquiry, which is based in Banbridge, Co Down, began two weeks ago.The inquiry is examining allegations of child abuse in 13 children’s homes and other residential institutions in the North from 1922 to 1995.During the period covered by the inquiry, the two Derry homes catered for more than 2,000 children.Chaired by retired High Court judge Sir Anthony Hart, the inquiry is due to provide a report on its findings to the Northern Ireland Executive in early 2016 AFTER 40 YEARS, DONEGAL WOMAN TO FLY FROM AUSTRALIA TO TELL OF ABUSE AT HANDS OF NUNS was last modified: January 27th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:abusedonegalinquiryNazareth Housenunssex abuselast_img read more

Judge overturns Garda Chief Superintendent’s decision to refuse man a taxi-license

first_imgA Judge has overturned a decision by a Garda Chief Superintendent not to grant a taxi license to a Co Donegal man.Tony Pyper appeared at Falcarragh District Court today appealing a decision by Chief Supt Terry McGinn to refuse him a small PSV license to drive a taxi. The father-of-two was found guilty in January of having no car insurance, after he had originally applied for his taxi license.He was contacted by Gardai to explain that his application for the taxi license was being refused.Chief Supt McGinn met with Mr Pyper on May 24th last and explained to him that her hands were tied on the matter but advised him to get legal advice.She told the court that because Mr Pyper was applying for a license to drive people in a taxi and that he had a conviction for not having insurance she had to refuse his application.She added that she couldn’t give you a license but if the Judge saw fit to grant the license then that is a matter for the court.Solicitor Frank Dorrian told the court that his client already holds a heavy PSV license and this entitled him to drive lorries and coaches which could carry 50 people but was refused a small taxi license.“Where is the logic in that,” asked Mr Dorrian.He said the original insurance breach happened when Mr Piper, of McNeely Villas, Oldtown, Letterkenny, took his mother’s car thinking he was insured on it and that he had no other convictions.Having heard all the applications, Judge Paul Kelly said he was going to allow Mr Piper’s appeal and grant him a license.He said while it seemed to him that the Chief Superintendent was within her rights to refuse the taxi license, it did appear to be disproportionate to the conviction.He added that the court has already felt it appropriate that Mr Piper kept his driving license and that he will no doubt have difficulty getting insurance because of his previous conviction for not having insurance.Judge overturns Garda Chief Superintendent’s decision to refuse man a taxi-license was last modified: July 22nd, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegallicenserefusaltaxiTerry McGinnTony Pyperlast_img read more
