‘Dier and Perisic are smokescreens for much bigger Man United signings!’

first_imgReports have been doing the rounds suggesting Eric Dier is open to a move to Manchester United this summer.With their pursuit of Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic reportedly on the verge of collapse, the Red Devils have set their sights on the 23-year-old England international.United vice-chairman Ed Woodward is said to have spoken to Daniel Levy at the start of the summer, and the Tottenham chief made it clear Dier is categorically not for sale.But with United willing to spend big, and boyhood United fan Dier apparently keen on a move to Old Trafford, could Spurs allow another player to swap north London for Manchester?Here is what a selection of United fans think about the prospect… 1 Eric Dier reportedly fancies a move to Man United last_img

Talking Horses: What Strike The Tiger is doing these days, plus tips

first_img John Gosden’s plea fails to move BHA panel on Rab Havlin French drug ban The Recap: sign up for the best of the Guardian’s sport coverage Since you’re here… Share on Messenger Wesley Ward reacquired Strike The Tiger at the end of his racing career, which went quite badly downhill in the years after his Windsor Castle success. The horse had sentimental value for Ward, having been his first Royal Ascot winner, and is now one of 13 retired racers that Ward apparently keeps in Florida. “He’s wonderful with all the horses,” Ward said of Strike The Tiger in quotes published by Thoroughbred Daily News. “He ponies Lady Aurelia by himself. He’s just a real gentle soul as a horse. I just can’t let him take her behind the gate because when he goes near the gate he acts differently because he remembers his old days as a war horse.” Ward also expects to run Happy Like A Fool and Elizabeth Darcy at York’s Ebor meeting next week. Those two-year-olds have been based in Europe since they ran at Royal Ascot, so Lady Aurelia would have had to make the journey from the US by herself if the trainer had not decided to send Strike The Tiger along to keep her company. Today’s main racing is at Salisbury, where Coconut Creme (3.50) is a very likeable 5-1 for the Upavon Fillies Stakes, a Listed affair. A Cape Cross half-sister to the Nassau winner Sultanina, she went close in a similar contest in May, beaten only by the useful Mori, and then ruined her chance in the 12-furlong Ribblesdale by refusing to settle out the back. Nearly two months later, she may have made significant progress in the interim and comes from the William Haggas yard that maintains a high strike-rate. She is preferred to the favourite, Playful Sound, who has already failed three times at Listed level. I’m surprised to be offered 12-1 about Seamster (2.50) in an earlier sprint handicap. His claiming jockey, Laura Coughlan, lacks experience but knows this one well enough, having been on him three times in the past fortnight, most recently when they won at Lingfield on Saturday. That ended a long losing run for Seamster, who had dropped to a beatable mark, and he could be up to defying a penalty. There will be more of an accent on speed here than on Saturday but he won over a fast five furlongs at Thirsk last year. I think the market has picked the wrong favourite in the Beverley claimer, which can fall to the course specialist Talent Scout (3.40) at 2-1. Meanwhile, On Alberts Head (8.20) is interesting at Bangor tonight, having joined Neil Mulholland from Richard Woollacott. He’s 12lb below the mark from which he won at Huntingdon in May last year and is on offer at 11-4. Tips for all Wednesday races  Read more Share on LinkedIn Horse racing tips … we have a small favour to ask.

Now working as a ‘companion thoroughbred’, the gelding travelled over from the US to York with Lady Aurelia at the end of last week and is settled there alongside the filly who is favourite for next week’s Nunthorpe Stakes.  Share on WhatsApp Reuse this content Read more Share on Pinterestlast_img read more
