first_imgSimply stunning day at Cheltenham on Thursday for our brand ambassador Davy Russell who stormed to the top of the jockeys table with a sensational 377/1 treble !!!!We caught up Davy after The Storyteller won – listen to his message for Starsports blog readers below:DAVY’S WINNERS WERE ……..Pertemps Network Final Handicap HurdleDELTA WORK WON 6/1Ryanair ChaseBALKO DES FLOS WON 8/1Brown Advisory Handicap ChaseTHE STORYTELLER WON 5/1Davy’s Cheltenham dream day even started trending around the world on twitter. After The Storyteller won ‘Davy Russell’ was trending second in the UK and ninth in the entire WORLD !!!Well done Davy from us all at Star Sports, now let’s hear your views on Friday’s racing. No pressure ……CHELTENHAM FRIDAYNo resting on any laurels !! I have three booked rides on Gold Cup Day …1:30 JCB Triumph HurdleSmaller field than usual and I think Mr Adjudicator and Apple’s Shakira set the standard.  The filly has such good form around the track and whilst not beating horses of this level she can improve further and I just prefer her chances. Farclas is a nice horse but he just has a little bit of ground to find with Mr Adjudicator on Leopardstown form.BEN DUNDEE (2:10 Randox Health County Handicap Hurdle)A real minefield of a race. We think what he needs is a real fast run two miles which I’m sure we’ll get here. There’re dangers everywhere you look but I thought last year’s Fred Winter winner Flying Tiger was one of the more likely sorts to go close.DORTMUND PARK (2:50 Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle)Continues to pleasantly surprise us. He has kept on improving as the year has gone on although was a little disappointing when fourth in a Grade 1 at Leopardstown the last day on his first run since having a wind op. Again, it’s another hugely competitive race but on my shortlist would be Chris’s Dream who loves the ground and won by an eased down 64 lengths the last day at Clonmel !DAVY ON DORTMUND PARK3:30 Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup ChaseSadly no ride for me this year but it’s a big field and on the ground will turn out to be a massive test of stamina. I’m not sure the conditions will suit Might Bite as I think the ground has gone against him. It’s wide open, I wouldn’t dismiss Definitly Red whilst Our Duke and Native River have obvious big claims too.DAVY ON THE GOLD CUP4:10 St. James’s Place Foxhunter Challenge Cup Open Hunters’ ChasePass !!4:50 Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap HurdleAt a big price I like the look of Dream Berry. He ran a brilliant race at Punchestown when last seen and I can see him coming back after the break a nice fresh horse. Jonjo rarely leaves the Festival without a win, so hopefully this fella can run well for him. Gordon’s (Elliott) Flawless Escape is a nice novice and his third at Leopardstown reads better now after Delta Work’s win today. Delta Work was a short head behind Flawless Escape in fourth spot that day.TOP GAMBLE (5:30 Johnny Henderson Grand Annual Challenge Cup Handicap Chase)I ride this one for Kerry Lee and a fast run two miles should prove perfect. He will also like the ground. JP’s Don’t Touch It looks a big danger to all.Best of luck on the final day, thanks for all your support and kind messages.DAVY YOUR SAYIf you have a question for Davy drop us a line at and we’ll try and include in the next blog…last_img

And on Thursday night, he looked ready to bust out.In the depth chart, Ateman stood behind Brandon Sheperd, who was still clearly limited with his recent finger disclocation.Ateman took full advantage of his opportunity, and ended the game with 75 total receiving yards, including a 18-yard touchdown grab that Mason Rudolph put only where Ateman could grab.AdChoices广告Marcell AteMAN. Good guys by 11.— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) September 4, 2015A quick refresher: Ateman is 6-foot-5! He should be making those plays.After the game, Mike Gundy said that “He (Ateman) is in his third year now, so it’s time for him to start making some plays.”With a big performance to build on at Mount Pleasant on Thursday, he could be ready to do just that.

It was very important for me to learn how to time my runs and create opportunities for others.” last_img
