Kingman declared for Curragh charge

first_img John Gosden’s exciting colt was a hot favourite to secure his fourth win from as many starts in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket at the start of the month, but was narrowly beaten on the Rowley Mile by the Richard Hannon-trained Night Of Thunder. With his conqueror not making the trip to Ireland this weekend, Kingman is odds-on to take the Irish Guineas back to Newmarket . Kingman will face 13 opponents when he gets a second shot at Classic glory in the Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Guineas at the Curragh on Saturday. Despite Night Of Thunder’s non-participation, the Hannon team still saddle a major contender in Shifting Power, who was not beaten far into fourth at Newmarket. Dermot Weld has made a fantastic start to the season and relies upon Amethyst Stakes winner Mustajeeb, after deciding against running Tetrarch Stakes scorer Alkasser. Aidan O’Brien is unsurprisingly mob-handed, with War Command, a disappointing ninth in the Newmarket Guineas, joined by stable companions Great White Eagle, Michaelmas, Johann Strauss and Fountain Of Youth. Obliterator, Big Time, Prince Of All, Dolce N Karama, Mandatario and Davids Park also feature in the Classic field. Along with Alkasser, the only other withdrawal from the latest entry stage was Paul Deegan’s Shining Emerald. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Godet apparently signed one note. However, police were initially investigating the case as a murder-suicide, he said. “Did she know what she was signing at 106 years old? I don’t know,” Maffei said. “She was definitely killed at the hands of another, so we have to assume it was a murder.” SAN FRANCISCO – A 106-year-old widow was strangled by her longtime caretaker, a man less than one-third her age, who then drank poison in an apparent suicide pact at the home they shared, police said. The bodies of Helen Godet and her caretaker of nine years, David Lund, were found Friday along with a pair of suicide notes indicating that Lund strangled the woman after she decided she couldn’t take her own life, San Francisco police Inspector Dennis Maffei said Tuesday. Lund, who was in his early 30s, then swallowed a fatal dose of antifreeze, authorities said. The notes were dated Dec. 27. “There are indications that it was going to be a double suicide, but she couldn’t force herself to drink the poison, so he killed her and then drank the poison,” Maffei said. last_img read more
