Newbury beckons for Global Citizen | Racing News

first_img– Advertisement – “He likes to flick his toe out and attack the fences and not sit in behind horses where he can’t do that.”Pauling has announced the retirement of 2019 Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle third Bright Forecast, who missed all of last season and has since suffered a second heart issue.He added: “His heart has gone out of rhythm twice, and we now feel it is going to be hard to keep it right.“He has gone back to his owners, we have to keep the horse’s interest at heart, and there is no point carrying on.“It is a desperate shame, there are no two ways about it, because in the short spell he had with us he was very exciting.” Pauling hopes Global Citizen can leave that effort behind in either the Get Your Ladbrokes £1 Free Bet Today Handicap Chase on November 27 or the Ladbrokes Handicap Chase, better known as the Jim Joel Memorial Trophy, 24 hours later.He said: “Global Citizen came out of the Exeter race fine, and the likelihood is that he will go to Newbury now at the end of the month.“He will either go for the two-mile-three handicap chase on the Friday or what is the Jim Joel Memorial Trophy.- Advertisement – “He should have dropped to a nice mark for a handicap like either of those.”With a decision to drop Global Citizen in behind the pace at Exeter failing to work, Pauling plans to switch him back to the front-running tactics which have served him well in the past.He added: “It was disappointing at Exeter, but we thought we would try different tactics and just drop him in. Some horses don’t enjoy being ridden like that, and he is one.- Advertisement – Ben Pauling is weighing up two handicap options at the Ladbrokes Winter Carnival at Newbury for multiple Grade Two winner Global Citizen.The eight-year-old failed to complete a race for the first time in his career when pulling up on his seasonal return in the Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter last week.- Advertisement –last_img read more

first_img“Men can snap up things they are told (to buy) and go, so I think it’s good that they go shopping, avoiding human contact,” the 56-year-old added.When challenged by a reporter, he acknowledged his remarks might be viewed as out-of-touch, but said they were true in his family.But online he was roundly condemned, with one Twitter user accusing him of being “disrespectful to women and men.”Read also: Putting women, girls at heart of COVID-19 response and recovery in ASEAN: Turning challenges into opportunities Another dubbed his comment “full of prejudice against women,” adding “there are indecisive men and nimble and sharp women.””Does he think (shoppers) like to take time?” added a third. “They are thinking about menus and prices.”But there was some support for the mayor.”That’s right. Elderly women in particular are always chatting away, unconcerned about shopping,” wrote one user.Despite its highly educated female population, Japan ranked 121 out of 153 countries in the World Economic Forum’s 2020 gender gap index, primarily because of its poor showing in political representation.Traditional gender roles are still deeply rooted in Japanese society and women are often still expected to take primary responsibility for childcare and domestic chores, even while holding down professional jobs.Topics : The mayor of Japan’s Osaka has come under fire for suggesting men should do grocery shopping during the coronavirus outbreak because women are indecisive and “take a long time.”Japan is under a state of emergency over the pandemic, and residents in some areas have been asked to shop less frequently and only send one family member out to get supplies to limit contact.Osaka Mayor Ichiro Matsui told reporters on Thursday that men should be entrusted with grocery runs because women “take a long time as they browse around and hesitate about this and that,” Kyodo news agency reported.last_img read more

She was brought in as a stray not long ago, and gets skittish around men. Otherwise, she’s a cheerful girl. She loves running around and cuddling with people she trusts. Next, meet whopper. Whopper is about three–and–a–half years old and is recovering from surgery. His tail was beyond repair when he was brought in, so the vets at the Humane Society decided to amputate it. He’s adapting quite well to his new balance, and though he’s still a bit shy, he’s fond of being petted by people he likes. Finally, take a look at Pumpkin. She’s gotten slightly bigger since we saw her two weeks ago. She’s somehow gotten more energetic, too; she darts around like nobody’s business and is very fond of grabbing onto toys. Pumpkin is looking for a high–energy buddy who can keep up with her.If you’re interested in adoption, visit Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious Local organization receives complaints about stolen yard signsNext Gaylord man found deceased in Montmorency Countylast_img read more
