Matt Chapman looks ahead to a thrilling week at York for the Ebor Festival where Enable and Frankie Dettori are back on track
SUPERSTAR Enable, the world’s top rated horse Crystal Ocean, sizzling stayer Stradivarius and a sprinting smash up between Battaash and Ten Sovereigns raise hopes of an explosive and vintage York Ebor Festival next week. Live on the main ITV
'SUPERSTAR Enable, the world’s top rated horse Crystal Ocean, sizzling stayer Stradivarius and a sprinting smash up between Battaash and Ten Sovereigns raise hopes of an explosive and vintage York Ebor Festival next week. Live on the main ITV network, York runs Wednesday through to Saturday with dishes to savour on each and every day. Frankie Dettori and Enable are back to light up York again PA:Press Association For many Enable will be the star of the show as she struts her bits in Thursday’s Group 1 Darley Yorkshire Oaks, although she won’t be much of a betting proposition. John Gosden’s incredible daughter of Nathaniel will be long odds-on as she bids to repeat her 2017 success in this event. Of course prior to that she won the Epsom Oaks and King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes, and since then has landed two Arcs, a Breeders’ Cup Turf and, last time out, and other King George. Enable is more for us to cheer and marvel at than punt, but then again horse racing is not all about betting. Usain Bolt was a short priced favourite for the majority of his walk-overs, but it was still fun watching him in action. The only way Enable might be challenged is if stable companion and June’s Oaks heroine Anapurna has a crack at her, but that looks increasingly unlikely with the Prix Vermeille a much more likely option. Crystal Ocean faces a tougher test in the Group 1 Juddmonte International, a race won by some of the greats over the years. Magical is back, having got pretty close to Sir Michael Stoute’s tough as teak sort in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes at Royal Ascot, while lightly raced King of Comedy could represent Gosden after his neck second to Circus Maximus in the St James’s Palace Stakes. King of Comedy could well have the last laugh if a step up in trip brings about further improvement. Don’t forget about Japan , either, who could challenge with Magical for O’Brien as the Irish genius tries to land the Juddmonte for a sixth time. Don’t forget Japan… PA:Press Association Japan was classy in the King Edward VII Stakes and then banged home a first Group 1 in the Grand Prix de Paris at Longchamp last month. Gosden’s Stradivarius, meanwhile, is bang on target for the Lonsdale Cup on Friday. Last year’s Weatherbys Hamilton Stayers’ Million winner is primed to scoop the seven-figure sum for owner-breeder Bjorn Nielsen again, having won at York, Ascot and Goodwood already this season. Gosden said: “He’s as cheeky as ever! He’s full of himself, a very happy horse. He’s training up nicely for the race. Obviously, the Goodwood Cup was not that long ago, so we come into the Lonsdale just trying to keep the freshness in him. “He probably had tougher races coming through last year – the Gold Cup last year was a formidable race, whereas they probably didn’t go as hard this year. Therefore, for him, it didn’t drain him so much.” That does not bode well for the opposition! For many, though, the clash of the week will come in Thursday’s Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes, in which July Cup victor Ten Sovereigns represents the sponsors and takes on Battaash, the speedster who is just about unbeatable on a going day for Charlie Hills but does not always have a going day. \t \t\t \t\t \t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t Latest in Horse Racing \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tROLL UP, ROLL UP\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tThe Sun Racing team discuss their best bet ahead of a busy weekend\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tHART OF GOLD\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tJason Hart out to continue a special summer at Newbury and York\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tNAP TIME\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tDon't miss the big Saturday NAPs from our two top tipsters\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tPLAY IT SAFE\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tAll you need for Saturday's card at Newbury with the Sun Racing preview\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tFRIDAY REPORT\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tThe Sun Racing team reviews all the action from around the tracks today\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tTHE BETTING SPY\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tDon't miss Richard Robinson's top tips for Saturday's racing\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tTRADING FLOOR\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tLatest betting news and tips from William Hill ahead of Saturday's racing\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tBONUS BONANZA\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tBest free bets from - William Hill, Betway, Unibet, Coral & Ladbrokes\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tOUT & ABOUT WITH ANDY\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tAndy Ayres is back and has the latest news fresh from the paddock\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tTAKE IT TO THE MAX\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tTop Tipster Templegate's best bets for the racing today\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tINSIDE TRACK\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tUnibet ambassador Jamie Spencer runs you through his rides this Saturday\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tNEWS HUB\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tYour one-stop shop for all of Friday's live racing news, tips and gossip\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t \t \t \t \t I’m still not convinced by Ten Sovereigns, who looked iffy in the 2000 Guineas as far as head carriage is concerned. He might have suddenly come good sprinting, but time will tell. York has not been a good place for Battaash, and he has still only landed one Group 1 despite his talent. That said, this is a great chance for the horse in the colours of the legendary Dayjur , those of Hamdan al Maktoum. You have to go back to 2011 and Margot Did for the last member of the Classic generation to land the Nunthorpe, and before then Oasis Dream in 2003. Interestingly, for those who think the Commonwealth Cup helps three-year-old sprinters, no horse has managed to win at York since that race was introduced in 2015. Of course the Ebor is the big betting race of the week, and we’ll all be scratching our heads a week today trying to find the winner. The new conditions have turned it into a Group race just about, and I think that’s sad. The Ebor is nothing like the great handicap it once was. That said, York will still be immense. \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t'

'Fear, loathing and frustration over Britain’s departure from the EU have created fault lines throughout the country. In the latest installment of our series ‘Britain on the Couch’, we head to the divided constituency of Lewes, where Remain won by a narrow majority. Even in this sleepy market town people on both sides say they’ve been subjected to violence for publicly stating their views. Evidence perhaps of our collective Brexit breakdown? We sent the psychoanalyst Susanna Abse to Lewes with our very own Channel 4 News couch to see if she could find common ground across the political divide.'

'Pete Buttigieg had an extremely awkward encounter with a woman who previously met the late Robert F.Kennedy.The gay Presidential hopeful was campaigning at the Iowa State Fair when he met the woman, who recalled a previous encounter with Kennedy in 1968.Speaking to Buttigieg on Tuesday (August 13), she said : “I shook Robert Kennedy’s hand in 1968.” However, when Buttigieg responded, “So you’re good luck?”, the woman replied: “Not really— he was shot a month later.” Hopefully the same fate will not befall Buttigieg, however.Pete Buttigieg has been losing ground in Democratic race The Presidential hopeful has been sliding in recent polls , losing ground to the surging Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris . Polls from YouGov, Morning Consult and Fox News this week have continued to show Buttigieg in fifth place, in line to receive three to six percent of the polls ahead of the Democratic primaries.Buttigieg trails Warren and Harris as well as Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, the initial the frontrunners in the race.Democratic presidential candidate and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg (Paras Griffin/WireImage) However, he has more than enough support to qualify for the next round of the Democratic TV debates in September.In slightly better news for the candidate, pollsters have predicted that hecould have what it takes to beat Donald Trump.In a poll published on August 7, SurveyUSA found that if the election were brought forward to today, Buttigieg would be neck-and-neck with the incumbent.Out of 5,459 registered voters, 44 percent said they would vote for Trump, with 42 percent backing Buttigieg.Tellingly, the gay candidate trails Trump by a massive 27 points in Evangelical households, compared to 25 points for Warren and Harris, 21 points for Sanders, and 19 points for Biden SurveyUSA said that the result would be too close to call.Pete Buttigieg has some strange personal hygiene tips Elsewhere at the Iowa State Fair on Tuesday (August 13), Buttigieg revealed some bizarre beliefs about bathing.Asked what advice he had for teenagers starting college, the Rhodes scholar quipped: “Dish soap and hand soap are pretty much the same thing. “In your dorm room, this is very useful.Took me a while to figure that out.” The candidate did not clarify whether he was washing dishes with hand soap or washing his body with dish soap, prompting a debate on Twitter about the relative benefits of both.One user quipped: “Now I can wash dishes and forks in the shower with me while I’m bathing!” . The post Pete Buttigieg met a woman who shook hands with Robert Kennedy and it soon got awkward appeared first on PinkNews - Gay news, reviews and comment from the world's most read lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans news service .'
