Vautour excites Mullins in workout

first_img Press Association Willie Mullins singled out JLT Novices’ Chase hopeful Vautour for special praise after a post-racing workout at Leopardstown. Vautour was one of a trio of Cheltenham Festival-bound runners to strut their stuff for Mullins, with Betfred Gold Cup hopeful Djakadam and Un De Sceaux, who is viewed by many as a banker in the Racing Post Arkle Trophy, also in action. Mullins said: “They worked over more or less a mile and a half and jumped a few fences. I was very pleased with them and they put in a good round of jumping. Vautour was very good.” center_img Meanwhile, Shark Hanlon admits Hidden Cyclone’s Cheltenham engagement is likely to be dictated by the ground after he too worked following the meeting. The 10-year-old bounced back to winning form with a comfortable success in the Tied Cottage Chase at Punchestown last time and retains entries in the Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase and the Ryanair Chase. Hidden Cyclone finished second to Dynaste in the two-mile-five-furlong Ryanair last term but having won over two miles last time, soft ground would tempt Hanlon to take the shorter option of the Queen Mother. He said: “We won’t make a decision yet on him. If it’s soft ground it’ll be more than likely the Queen Mother, but if it’s good I’m thinking strongly about the Ryanair. “Patrick (Mullins) rode him to have someone different on him. I did the same thing last year and he ran well.” last_img read more

Big Ten Championships awaits

first_imgFresh off its decisive victories in West Lafayette, Ind., at the Big Ten Quad Duals, the University of Wisconsin women?s swimming team is heading to Columbus, Ohio, to compete in the Big Ten Championships. The team, with an overall 8-1 record, heads into this meet ranked 20th in the nation and unbeaten in any Big Ten dual so far this season.?We?re really looked forward to the meet,? coach Eric Hansen said during a Monday press conference.The Badgers are coming off decisive victories at the beginning of the month at the Quad Duals, defeating Purdue 233-136 and crushing Illinois 272-75. Freshman swimmer Maggie Meyer received Big Ten Swimmer of the Week honors for her work that weekend, setting season-best times for Wisconsin swimmers in her winning 100- and 200-yard backstroke races. Moreover, she aided three winning relays: the 200-yard freestyle, 400-yard freestyle and 200-yard medley. Senior Jackie Vavrek earned an NCAA ?B? time and almost broke a Big Ten record for her victory in the 50-yard freestyle race. Also, junior Christine Zwiegers and senior Katie Imhoff-Smith took first and second, respectively, in the 100-yard butterfly. With such success, it?s easy to see why the Badgers are excited for the coming events in Columbus.?We have one of the best groups of girls we?ve ever had,? Hansen said. ?We?re looking forward to having a good showing.?The Big Ten Championships, held Thursday, Friday and Saturday, are the last calendar event for the women?s team in February. Hansen is taking a squad of 28 with him to Columbus, consisting of 24 swimmers and four divers. This meet will determine whether the Badgers can remain undefeated in Big Ten meets and whether the Big Ten Championship will be theirs.Hansen was confident the Big Tens would favor the Badgers.?On the swimming side, I would say so, but it?s a combined score,? Hansen said. ?It?s swimming and diving. We?re hoping to increase our production over the next couple of years.?Badger diving has suffered a little recently, being shut out at the Northwestern Triangular late in the fall, failing to secure victories in either the one- or three-meter events at Hawaii, and most recently, getting shut out in platform diving at the Quad Duals.Although the competition this week will be for the Big Ten title, Hansen said that the team?s main focus will be to gear up for the NCAA Championships taking place at the same facility in Columbus. ?Our primary focus will be the NCAA Championships in a month,? Hansen said.Despite looking ahead, the competition in Columbus for the Big Ten will not be easy. Wisconsin will be facing higher ranked teams in Minnesota (No. 9), Michigan (No. 11), Penn State (No. 13) and Indiana (No. 19). When asked for swimmers he thought stepped up this season, implying who would need to step up at the Big Ten Championships, Hansen named Vavrek, Meyer, Zwiegers and one other.?We have Gabby Maddalena, one of our best distance swimmers,? Hansen said.Maddalena is fresh off of her best time of the season in the 1,000-yard freestyle race, taking second at the Quad Duals. She shaved off four whole seconds from her previous best in that meet. ?I think that we?re really looking forward to the meet. We have one of the best groups of girls we?ve ever had. We have a great mix of really talented freshmen, but we also have some very seasoned veterans in our upper class, so we?re looking forward to a great showing,? Hansen said.last_img read more

Yet again, Wisconsin faces No. 1 Ohio State

first_imgJosh Gasser and the Wisconsin Badgers are facing Ohio State for the second time this season. They were victorious in the first meeting Feb. 12, giving the Buckeyes their first loss in a 71-67 win.[/media-credit]Another month, another date with No. 1 Ohio State.The No. 12 Wisconsin Badgers (23-6, 13-4) will travel to Columbus, Ohio, Sunday afternoon, and in doing so they will face the Buckeyes (28-2, 15-2) for the third time this year. The first took place on the gridiron last October, and the second came Feb. 12 at the Kohl Center. Both resulted in wins for the Badgers, and both gave the Buckeyes their first loss in each season.Following a two-week absence from the nation’s top spot after falling to Wisconsin, Ohio State is again the No. 1 team. The Buckeyes rebounded three days later with a victory over Michigan State but fell on the road to Purdue at always-tough Mackey Arena. Since then, Ohio State has won three in a row.Meanwhile, Wisconsin has won four in a row. Yet, questions persist regarding the Badgers’ ability to play on the road, as they are just 6-6 away from the Kohl Center. So while a four-game winning streak entering the final game of the regular season would seem to be a cause for celebration – or at the very least, some praise – UW is instead focusing on solidifying its grasp on the momentum.“This is the time of year where you want to be playing your best basketball,” forward Jon Leuer said. “I feel like we’ve done a pretty good job of that. We’ve put together some wins here, and now we’re just trying to keep stringing them together, keep improving every day so that for the stretch run – it’s March now – so for the stretch run, we just want to be playing our best basketball.”In regards to improvement, neither team figures to change much from the first time they met. After all, Ohio State held a 15-point lead with 13:21 remaining in the second half – until point guard Jordan Taylor and Wisconsin erased it in less than four minutes. Taylor finished with 27 points on 8-of-13 shooting, seven assists and four rebounds. He sparked the 15-0 run that brought UW back with eight straight points, leaving head coach Bo Ryan without much of an explanation after the game – a very rare feat.“I’d like to be able to explain that, but it’s hard, even for me, and I see him every day,” Ryan said after the game. “Just good decision after good decision – not because the ball went in the net when he pulled up on some of the shots, but he read whether or not he was open, whether or not there was separation on the ones that he scored. On the ones that he assisted to others, some really good decisions to drive along the baseline.”Taylor continued – and perhaps extended – his brilliance with 39 points against Indiana Thursday night. His 4.1 assist-turnover ratio leads the nation, and as a result, Wisconsin does as well with a 1.79 mark.The Badgers have long been one of the nation’s most efficient teams – 1.19 points per possession is tied for the national lead – but with their struggles on the road has come some offensive consistency. That notion might seem ridiculous after Wisconsin’s – and Taylor’s – explosion against Indiana, but the Hoosiers sit in 10th place in the Big Ten and allow the ninth-most points per game.“The biggest thing on the road is just we’ve been a little bit stagnant offensively,” Leuer said. “I don’t think we’ve been cutting as hard, pushing the ball as much as we have been at home. I think that just makes us settle for a lot of jumpers. But when we’re cutting hard and moving the ball, our shooting percentage tends to go up.”Typically, struggles on the road prod critics to point out a lack of focus. But the Badgers insist that isn’t the case.“Maybe a little bit, but I never really got that feeling with this team,” forward Keaton Nankivil said. “I think this is the most focused team I’ve been on.”Taylor’s dominance Thursday night masked some of the Badgers’ offensive struggles, but for much of February, their offense has revolved around jump shots and forced possessions through Taylor. Leuer, UW’s leading scorer with 19.3 points per game, has made just 4-of-24 three-pointers since Feb. 6 against Michigan State.Thus, freeing up the offense likely will continue to be a principal priority when the Badgers invade Columbus for round three with the Buckeyes.“The more hard cutting we can get and fighting through contact, getting the ball in the post and just getting high percentage shots, that frees up our offense so much more,” Leuer said.last_img read more
