    Thoughts turned to jump racing's Cheltenham Festival in March after Moon Racer, the winner of the Festival's Champion Bumper [flat race for national hunt horses] in 2015, made a successful debut over hurdles, narrowly beating Ballyandy - the 2016 champion- at Perth (3:20).

    Successful trainer David Pipe is planning a campaign that could take the lightly-raced seven-year-old, ridden by Tom Scudamore, to Cheltenham's Supreme Novices Hurdle next year. 

    The Martyn Meade-trained colt Eminent became the latest offspring of champion racehorse-turned-stallion Frankel to make the winners' circle when storming home to victory on his racecourse debut, at Newmarket ridden by jockey Jim Crowley.

    Speaking as bookies began to offer odds on Eminent for next year's 2000 Guineas, Meade came up with perhaps the quote of the day: "Luckily he (Crowley) managed to pull him up before hitting the High Street."

  6. Carvalhal knew Helan wanted to quit

    Jeremy Helan

    Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal has said he has known for a while that winger Jeremy Helan wanted to retire to focus on religion.

    The 24-year-old Frenchman, a devout Muslim, is set to retire from the game.

    Carvalhal told BBC Radio Sheffield: "It's not new for me. It's something I've talked to him about since the start of the season.

    "When he talked with me I understood and I just said to him to take some time to be sure about the decision.

    "In that period he was very professional - he's a nice guy - but I must tell you that his head isn't in football."

  9. My silver medal meant more than the golds - Malone

    Rio Paralympics 2016

    Liam Malone

    Double Paralympic gold medallist Liam Malone says running helped him deal with his mother's death from bowel cancer in 2012.

    The three-time Rio medal winner said it was his silver, won on his mum's birthday, that was the most special to him.

    "That medal is far more important than the two golds to me," he said.

    In an interview at NZME Central, the 22-year-old Wellington-based athlete joked he turned to running after his original strategy for dealing with his grief - smoking and drinking heavily - failed to work.

  13. 'It changed people's lives'

    Horse racing

    Frankie Dettori has been reflecting on his 'Magnificent Seven', 20 years after he went through the card at Ascot.

    Dettori's wins cost bookmakers an estimated £40m.

    He told BBC Radio 5 live: "For sporting achievement, it's my greatest thing that I've ever done, and in horse racing. It would be very hard to match something like that.

    "And, second, there's a fairytale scenario where bookmakers lost £40m, and wherever I went, in every part of the country, I had so many people coming up to me who'd won so much money on that day, and it changed people's lives, so it's a very amazing thing.

    "I moved the stock market [because of fears about bookmakers' losses]. It was crazy what happened, but it's nice that it can happen and people made a lot of money."

    You can hear Frankie Dettori: Magnificent Seven 20 years on on BBC Radio 5 live, Thursday 22 September, 20:00 BST.  

  14. Video ref used for the first time... sends a player off

    Ajax's Dutch Cup 5-0 victory over Willem II saw the first player sent off by a video referee.

    Official Danny Makkelie took charge of Wednesday's game with Pol van Boekel assisting from a van outside.

    With Ajax 2-0 up, Willem's Anouar Kali was shown a yellow card by Makkelie for a challenge on Lasse Schone.

    However, upon watching the incident back, Van Boekel indicated Kali should be shown a red. 

    The referee corrected his initial decision and Ajax made the man advantage count, going on to add a further three goals.

  16. Newport's Man City request turned down

    Newport boss Warren Feeney has revealed Manchester City turned down his request to watch the team train.

    City are staying in Wales in between their back to back games with Swansea.

    Feeney said: "It was a big 'no' from them.

    "There was a possibility, but I think it's Pep's ruthlessness that he likes to keep it all in house which you can understand as they're a world class team."
