Sub Lieutenant is a 50-1 outsider for Cheltenham Gold Cup glory in March but could take a significant step towards steeplechasing’s ‘Blue Riband’ at Thurles on Sunday. The Grade Three Horse & Jockey Kinloch Brae Chase has thrown up the last two Cheltenham Gold Cup heroes. It was won a year ago by Sizing John, who beat Sub Lieutenant, while Don Cossack scored in 2016 before securing his own landmark Gold Cup success two months later.
Horse Racing Ireland anticipate crowds of up to 24,000 people for the upcoming inaugural ‘Dublin Racing Festival’ at Leopardstown. The Dublin track currently has capacity for up to 18,000 at a time. When the €1.5 million initiative was unveiled last September, champion jockey Ruby Walsh predicted the new fixtures on February 3rd-4th would “have to fill the place”.
Jump racing’s Spring festivals can seem a long way away on a mid-January ‘Black Monday’ but there were feel-good vibes aplenty at Willie Mullins’s yard. It may be eight weeks to the sport’s ultimate showpiece event at Cheltenham but it’s only 19 days to Leopardstown’s new ‘Dublin Racing Festival’. There’s a lot riding on the decision to cram the track’s most valuable races into a single lucrative weekend worth €1.5 million in prizemoney over February 3rd-4th.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
