first_img Willie Mullins’ charge has shown most of his best form over two miles, however, and tackles the two-mile-six-furlong trip for the first time. Usuel Smurfer may strip fitter after his return in Galway and will appreciate the good ground on offer. Bishops Road looks the likely front-runner in the race and is capable of making a bold show on the pick on his chase form. The Richard Power Private Client Betting Handicap Hurdle has attracted a good-quality field, with Beckwith Star aiming to complete a hat-trick in the 17,500 euro contest. The Henry de Bromhead-trained gelding was a game winner at Galway, following on from another narrow success over fences at Wexford previously. He still enjoys a mark 7lb lower over timber, despite a 7lb rise for his victory at Ballybrit. Patsio claimed a handicap hurdle at the May meeting in the south-east and was far from disgraced in a hot novice hurdle at Galway. He looks on a competitive mark returning to handicap company now. Coldstonesober has already been in action at the Festival, finishing fourth over fences on Thursday night. The nine-year-old takes his racing well and is sure to produce another big run for connections. Collen Beag, who won her maiden here in May, was due to try handicap company for the first time on Friday night, while the consistent Swantykay, a winner here last year, reverts to hurdles having unseated over the larger obstacles last time. There is also a good conditions chase on the card with a few smart performers lining up for the Comeragh Veterinary Kilmacthomas Chase. Upazo sets the standard off a mark of 137 and looks well treated by conditions as he gets weight from a couple of likely rivals. Five former course-and-distance winners do battle in the final-day feature at Tramore on Sunday. Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgWisconsin men’s basketball head coach Greg Gard affirmed his belief that a big part of the team’s success has been an improvement in players’ cohesive play and understanding concepts better — especially when it comes to the younger members of the team.With Wisconsin (19-10 Overall, 11-5 Big Ten) scheduled to play Minnesota (8-20) Wednesday in Minneapolis, Gard took a moment Monday to reflect on what helped Wisconsin reach this point in the season, and how he plans to move the team forward.Gard placed his focus on the team’s evolution as a whole, rather than just zoning in on one player. He addressed a few key advancements that have made the biggest difference in overall play.“I think we’ve gotten better offensively. I found some great clips where we moved the ball well last night,” Gard said. “Defensively I found great clips where we really exchanged well in dribble penetration attempts. We also exchanged ball screens at the right time. There was three or four that we made mistakes with ball screens, where we got caught too high on the screener, and they threw over the top of us.”The team might not be perfect yet, but Gard is clearly paying close attention to mistakes that were made and deciding how to effectively repair them.Despite the obvious upward trend in Wisconsin’s play, Gard is still hesitant to look as far as the upcoming tournaments. Rather, he prefers a different approach when it comes to continuing the team’s success. Gard and the rest of the Badgers maintain the mindset of taking things one day, and one practice at a time.“That’s the mindset we’ve taken all year. I don’t even really let them jump ahead even to the game yet,” Gard said. “It’s about today, and the first hour it will be how we can get better ourselves. A lot of today’s practice will be individual improvement and some team things as well, and also making sure that we’re staying healthy. If we need to rest a few guys here or there we’ll do that and be smart about that.”In terms of future strategies, Gard’s approach is relatively the same.“I think at this point in time in the year, you have to be careful. We’re not going to reinvent the wheel,” he said. “Nothing miraculous is going to be discovered in today’s practice other than where we can sharpen up, get better in areas and a lot of that will be visual with the video.”So far, Gard’s one-day-at-a-time mindset and attention to detail has been working in the Badgers’ favor.last_img read more

first_imgDECORAH — Governor Kim Reynolds was at an award-winning brewery in Decorah Tuesday for a ceremony to approve a law that will likely expand the variety of alcoholic beverages produced in the state.The new law, which takes effect July 1, lets state-licensed beer makers, wineries and distilleries get another license to make another kind of alcohol.“This is an opportunity for companies just like Toppling Goliath to continue to grow and expand and it’s my understanding that they’re ready to move into distilled spirits,” Reynolds said. “This is removing barriers so our entrepreneurs and our small business owners can continue to not only invest in their company, but invest in Iowans and their communities and that is certainly what’s happening here with Toppling Goliath.”Clark Lewey, founder of Toppling Goliath, said it means “job growth” for the state.“It’s pretty exciting for us,” Lewey said. “We’ve been thinking about distilling for some time and, of course, the obstacle in the way — or the ‘Goliath’ — was the Iowa law concerning brewers. If you had a brewers permit, you were not allowed to own a distillery, so that’s what this bill does. It changes that law and gives all Iowa breweries the opportunity to become a distillery as well.”According to the Iowa Brewers Guide, craft beer is being brewed at 80 different locations in the state today. There are more than 100 commercial wineries and, according to a state report, there are 10 Iowa businesses making vodka, whiskey, rye and other alcoholic spirits.last_img read more
