No Sussex regrets for O’Brien

first_imgAidan O’Brien has no regrets about sidestepping the Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood with the brilliant Gleneagles. The dual 2000 Guineas hero and St James’s Palace Stakes winner looked set for a mouthwatering clash with top older miler Solow in the Group One contest, but was not declared, with connections citing the rain-softened ground as the reason. Conditions had dried up prior to racing on Wednesday, with the going officially described as good, but O’Brien insisted he was happy with the decision not run his star three-year-old. Asked if he had any regrets about not running, O’Brien told Channel 4 Racing: “No, absolutely not. I was delighted the minute I walked out on the track that he was at home. “The straight is on the slow side of good and Gleneagles is a fast ground horse. “There are absolutely no doubts. When we were listening to everybody before we came, we would be (having doubts), but the minute we put a foot on it we knew it was the right thing.” The Prix Jacques le Marois at Deauville and the Prix du Moulin at Longchamp are the next viable options over a mile for Gleneagles and O’Brien is not ruling out a step up to a mile and a quarter in either the Juddmonte International at York or Leopardstown’s Irish Champion Stakes. He said: “The lads will make the decision on where he goes. He could go to France for the mile race (Marois), he could go to Longchamp for the mile race (Moulin), he could go to neither. “He could go to York for the mile and a quarter, he could go to Leopardstown for the mile and a quarter. “Wherever he gets proper fast ground, he’ll go somewhere like that.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Wakaso attributes Black Stars form to hard work

first_imgMubarak Wakaso says he was not surprised by his outstanding performance in Ghana’s opening 2017 AFCON qualifier due to his hard work behind the scenes. The midfielder was widely considered as Ghana’s best player in the 7-1 mauling of Mauritius in the game played earlier this month at the Accra Sports Stadium.The 24-year old’s impressive display had come as surprise to pundits who had criticized Avram Grant for his inclusion  due to his lack of playing time at club level. The former AshGold man’s loan move to Celtic from Rubin Kazan has turned out to be a disaster as he has managed only five appearances for the Scottish giants.But the midfielder’s vision and ability to break play silenced critics.“I am a hardworking player, even if I am not playing I work hard behind everybody. I know what I want to achieve so I work very hard behind the scenes so I wasn’t surprised at all,” he told African Football. Wakaso cemented his place in the center of midfield for Black Stars at this year’s Afcon when he came off the bench to slice a 60-yard assist for Asamoah Gyan to get the winner against Algeria.–last_img read more
