AMERICAN ANTHEM & CISTRON HEAD SATURDAY’S GRADE II, $200,000 TRIPLE BEND STAKES AS EIGHT OLDER SPRINTERS GO SEVEN PANELS
AMERICAN ANTHEM & CISTRON HEAD SATURDAY’S GRADE II, $200,000 TRIPLE BEND STAKES AS EIGHT OLDER SPRINTERS GO SEVEN PANELS ARCADIA, Calif. (May 23, 2019)–In a talent laden eight-horse lineup, Bob Baffert’s American Anthem and John Sadler’s Cistron would appear to merit top billing going seven furlongs in Saturday’s Grade II, $200,000 Triple Bend Stakes at Santa Anita.Favored in his first start in nine months, American Anthem was a close second in a one turn mile classified allowance on Kentucky Derby Day at Churchill Downs and would appear to have a huge chance as he shortens to a distance at which he’s won four out of five times.Thought to be a turf sprinter, Cistron ran his competition off their feet when winning the Grade II, 6 ½ furlong Kona Gold Stakes by 5 ¼ lengths here on April 20. Reunited with Victor Espinoza, he’ll be facing tougher company in the Triple Bend, including Baffert’s speedy Nero, who figures to apply plenty of early pace pressure.AMERICAN ANTHEMOwner: China Horse Club & WinStar Farm, LLCTrainer: Bob BaffertA 5-year-old horse by Bodemeister, went to the front in his most recent race at Churchill Downs on May 4 and gave way grudgingly late to be second by three quarters of a length as the 6-5 favorite. A winner of two graded stakes here, the Grade II Lazaro Barrera in May, 2017 and the Grade II San Carlos on June 23, 2018, American Anthem will be reunited with Mike Smith, who has ridden him in eight of his 12 starts, winning three of them.CISTRONOwner: Hronis Racing, LLCTrainer: John SadlerAlthough campaigned through 13 consecutive turf starts, including a close second place finish two starts back in the Grade III San Simeon Stakes on March 31, Cistron was wheeled back in 10 days on dirt in the Grade II Kona Gold Stakes April 20 and he responded with a rousing gate to wire 5 ¼ length win. A 5-year-old horse by The Factor, Cistron will likely have to contend with Nero early as he tries seven furlongs on dirt for only the second time in his career. A lifetime earner of $480,719, he has an overall mark of 25-4-6-6.THE GRADE II TRIPLE BEND STAKES WITH JOCKEYS & WEIGHTS IN POST POSITION ORDERRace 8 of 10 Approximate post time 4:30 p.m. PTAmerican Anthem–Mike Smith–121Cistron–Victor Espinoza–123Law Abidin Citizen–Tiago Pereira–123Majestic Eagle–Flavien Prat–121Nero–Drayden Van Dyke–121Air Strike–Norberto Arroyo, Jr.–121The Hardest Way–Joe Talamo–121All Out Blitz–Martin Garcia–121First post time for a 10-race card that will also include the Grade II Charles Whittingham Stakes and the Grade III Daytona Stakes, is at 1 p.m. For additional information, please visit santaanita.com or call (626) 574-RACE.

We had huge ones at the start of the season, big ones now in the season.“N’Golo Kante has played 50 per cent of the games when he has been basically a regular starter for the last four years in the Premier League.“Ruben hasn’t kicked a ball yet. We’ve got a lot and I think the fans respect that.”Lampard knows the pressure is on him after Monday night’s 2-0 defeat by Manchester United cut Chelsea’s advantage to fifth-placed Spurs to only one point.Supporters may be willing to give him more time than most managers given his legendary player status — but that slack will not last forever.The United loss was the fifth home reverse in the league this term and left Lampard struggling to sleep.Yet he insists he is thriving on the pressure to perform — just as he did as a player.Lampard, 41, even claimed to have ENJOYED this week as he embraces the challenge.MAKE YOUR DEBUT Bet £5 get £20 in free bets for new customers at Ladbrokes3 Lampard may decide to recall Kepa ArrizabalagaCredit: Getty ImagesHe said: “Maybe expectations did go up. But that’s a good thing and that’s normal. That’s human nature.“I thrived on pressure as a player and thrive on it as a manager. I have enjoyed this week.“We lost to Manchester United, I hated the fact we lost and it was a difficult night’s sleep.“But waking up the next day I thought this is a great challenge for us.”It remains to be seen if keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga will return to the starting line-up after being axed for the last two games in favour of veteran Willy Caballero.But Lampard insisted he was not on a collision course with his bosses over the £71.6million keeper.Latest Chelsea newsLive Blogblues newsChelsea news LIVE – Latest updates from Stamford BridgeGossipGOING DUTCHChelsea ‘to grab Mbuyamba on free deal’ with defender set to leave BarcelonaCOURT ORDERKante ‘ordered to appear in court’ in £3.4m legal battle with former agentBRIDGE OF SIGHSChelsea stars ‘bored’ and Hazard suffered under Sarri, says ex-No2 ZolaGossipBERN IT UPMan Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea on alert after Bernardeschi reveals Prem plansLive BlogBLUES NEWSChelsea news LIVE: Latest updates and transfer gossip from Stamford BridgeHe added: “I am absolutely together with the board.

Ryan told PACNEWS upon their arrival at Jackson International Airport Tuesday that Samoa is always a tough team to play against in any 7s tournament.“ I haven’t seen the team yet so I don’t know the strength of the side they brought over but they will be looking to qualify for Olympics in November, so I’m sure with the new coach as well they send for this tournament I’m sure they will be a huge threat as well .They always tough to play against.“I think PNG, Tonga and Samoa this three will make up a prime opposition this week,” Ryan told PACNEWS.He said although there were several changes in the team, he is adamant the team will deliver.“We obviously got a good squad here for this week’s competition. Seven changes from the team that played in London gives me chance to blood in new players.“We just had two days training before we came out here. We ‘ve been under cooked but it’s going to be a long three days I’m sure they will learn on the field and it should be a great tournament for us,” he said.Ryan said they want to maintain Fiji’s 7s team status as the number one team in World Rugby 7s series and the expectation from the public in Fiji is nothing less a win for a gold medal.“The boys had done their share and they are on a high and the support is huge at the moment where ever we go, so it’s good hopefully they will rise up to the challenge of being the best team in the world that means every game you have to defend that title in my mind and that will start with PNG.“They know, they understand how the selection been made and they also know like I do the way the team is selected for Fiji. There is an expectation they will do well, obviously the team I think has lost a couple of Pacific Games final to Samoa. We certainly keen to trying keep this good vibe around Fiji sevens and make sure that we can do our best and hopefully win the gold medal on Friday night,” a confident Ryan said…..PACNEWS
The League returns, the priority in Eibar?Yes, we will try to add more points than in the first round (19) because at that rate it will not give us for permanence. Those below squeeze.There has been the parenthesis of the Cup. Go situation for Delgado with the own goal in the discount!We wanted to pass. After the merits contracted by a team like El Cacereño, from Tercera, against one from Primera … the boy was sunk, we comforted him, it is one more soccer action.It was hard to convince Mendilibar.I spent five or six weeks that I didn’t count for the master. The team was winning.What does the technician give you?Claw. Each training is at its best, here it does not stop or drink because it does not give time. I’m learning defensive work, squeezing stealing balls …De Blasis called Mendi ‘the pit bull’Squeeze, and that suits us to be plugged in.Sometimes it’s like a father.He puts a lot of cane on us but in the end he loves us all.The jump to Primera is strong.Yes. But it was more important when I went from the Depor subsidiary to the first team, from Second B to Second. It cost me more. Leaving Cubelles to go to A Coruña, although before it passed through the Damm, was it hard?I was of age but when you have never left home, so many kilometers outside, it costs. Then the adaptation was good, great.He was very rooted in his land and attached to his grandmother.It has always been very important to me. I was sick when I left and you had a bad time.He was in Depor on 21, Valerón’s number.For my grandmother, who died on the 21st. And also because in A Coruña that number was very important. I asked the delegate and he gave it to me quickly.Why do you see Eibar as the right place to grow?I am not aggressive and here it was the ideal place to take another record.Who would you call the Atleti?To Thomas. I like Saul, he has a lot of records, he is the total player, but for us it would be good if Thomas didn’t play, he occupies a lot of ground, it’s hard.João Felix does not work.When expectations are so high, sometimes it costs you.Did you also weigh to be the most expensive signing?It didn’t affect me or pressure me.Atlético is a black beast. How do you beat them?Thinking that we play at home and we want to get many more victories and that Ipurua is our fort.
Trippier’s last-minute injury directly affects Arias, who again has a chance after losing the battle of the right side with English. The Colombian had a hard time having his first minutes, but then it seemed that the competition for the position had warmed. However, Simeone made clear his preference for the British. Of the last eleven meetings, in nine Arias he has remained on the bench without participating. In the final of the Super Cup he played 19 minutes of the extension as left side and its last title it was on December 6 before Villarreal (80 ‘). It is his baggage of the last months for a total of 594 minutes, nor the third part of those that Trippier has had, 1885 ‘. Arias has given an assistance (to Morata in the Pizjuán) and left good performances on that October-November stretch in which, in addition, Trippier went down after a brilliant start. However, after the defeat at Leverkusen, the coffee international lost his place, even if the pubalgia of its competition and the arrival of the Cup assure you minutes In the next weeks. However, Trippier and Arias are approached by a new competitor. Vrsaljko He has been recovering with the team for months and looks like the third right side of the team, in the absence of what happens in the winter market. Normally there is an exit in an overpopulated position and everything points to the Croatian, but Arias is a football player with a good sign, who has been tempted in recent months by Benfica and Naples. For those inside and outside, Ipurua has a good chance to show off.
Bustinza, captain of the Leganés, appreciated the draw against Atlético (0-0), with special attention to the final brawl after the expulsion of Cuéllar. What an ugly final has the game had …In the end we are in a difficult situation, the nerves are in full bloom and it is difficult to manage. We do not feel comfortable in these situations, we apologize for what has been seen, because we have to set an example. They playing at home want to win and we in the situation that we are, it is not easy … Cuellar’s action.He catches me on my back. We are in a complicated situation and the whole environment, the ball boy, the coach, make it intense, handle it well. I don’t know what happened. The image has not been the best.Leganés has regained intensity …The game the other day at home hurt (0-3 against Getafe), we came in a good dynamic with Aguirre, being an intense team and always present in the games. We did not want that to be missing today and it is a shame to leave with a draw, because we have had options to even score.

Atlético has João Félix back, who has overcome a muscle injury He returned to a call and could have minutes to receive Villarreal in the Wanda Metropolitano. A rival who keeps a bittersweet memory of Portuguese. Also in the visit to the team of Calleja had recently emerged from an injury, although in Ceramics it was a sprained ankle that had had him off the pitch for a month. João Felix played the 90 minutes of a game for the first time after his injury after having gradually entered the team with 15 minutes in Granada, 36 in Turin and 66 against Barcelona, varying his position between the front and as a right inside. But against Villarreal he went on to play as second striker, his favorite position and where he settled after his good role in Castellón. Two of his attempts went to goal, but they crashed in Sergio Asenjo, one of them deflecting with the fingertips the shot from outside the area of the young pearl mattress so that the ball ended up crashing with the stick. But in addition, João Félix enjoyed a hand-in-hand with Asenjo after a large inside pass from Saul where his attempt at Vaseline marched over the goal. The ‘7’ also showed his version as an assistant, player with last pass, but in that facet it was his teammates who had no success. Koke in the first instance and Lodi in the second. In the night of today João Félix could take it out and celebrate his return to the playing fields, getting what he had so close in the first leg, the goal. The Portuguese has lost four games during his injury: the derby against Real Madrid (1-0 defeat), the victory against Granada (1-0), the draw against Valencia (2-2) and the victory against Liverpool (1-0). The plan of the coaching staff goes through gradually recovering João Félix to arrive in the best conditions to the match against Sevilla (March 7) and Anfield (March 11), two of the great mattress appointments of the rest of the season, the first in the fight for the Champions League positions and the second to try to certify the result of the first leg and advance to the fourth in the continental competition. The Portuguese was the rojiblanco player more unbalanced in attack, incisive, vertical, screener, but he was also infected by the lack of aim that has accompanied the team all season. Total, João Felix finished nine times, half of the team’s 18 (Saul made four) to become Atlético player with more shots away from home without scoring At least since 2003.
But in a place like the Premier where every day are more fashionable offensive wingers, Álex Moreno fits perfectly. Its constant rises by the band, with exits in and out, have allowed him to give nothing less than five assists during the 25 games he has played this campaign, 22 of them as owner. And that was late to Betis, almost when LaLiga started, and it cost him take away the position of a Alfonso Pedraza who also had a promising start on Villamarín’s left wing.He managed to fight the position, the Cordovan was injured and Alex has revealed himself surely like the best signing quality / price / regular performance who has had Betis this season. That is why it is not strange that clubs from a championship as important as the English have set their sights on it and are also willing to leave a significant capital gain in the coffers of Heliopolis. The Álex Moreno season at Betis is not going unnoticed for many European clubs, including several of the Premier League, a market that likes physical sides and with depth like Catalan. He verdiblanco club, who paid Rayo Vallecano for him last summer Seven million euros plus some variables, do you think you can get almost triple whether confirms any of the offers that, not yet concrete, are already circulating as possible through Heliopolis. He Everton by Ancelotti look for a footballer of those characteristics. He Crystal Palace He is another of those who has probed the possibility of hiring him. Alex, 26 years old, debuted last season in top category after having risen with Rayo a campaign earlier, with his decisive goal also. In Vallecas your recycling arrived ultimate end, where he had practically played his entire career, to the side, although it is true that as a redhead he played many times with central three behind their backs. Ruby, who has usually acted in defense of four, insists that it improve its defensive performance and is succeeding Although some mistake, especially with the hands on the stopped ball, has cost a dislike to the verdiblancos.
