On Tuesday morning, with all 30 of the Royal meeting’s races still in the immediate future, there was a widespread belief that today’s Commonwealth Cup, a race that was introduced to the programme just two years ago, would be the best and most competitive Group 1 contest of the week. That was before Thursday’s Gold Cup set the bar at a very high level, but it is a measure of the Commonwealth Cup’s depth that it might yet live up to its early billing.
After two of the hottest afternoons at the Royal meeting that anyone can remember, it is a much cooler start to the day in Berkshire this morning and there is a possibility of thundery showers at some point in the day, though temperatures are still expected to be in the mid-20s throughout. Chris Stickels, the clerk of the course, did not feel that he was in a position to wait and see yesterday evening with regard to the showers, and applied 5mm of water to the entire track.
A day has made quite a difference to several confident betting-market predictions about how this year’s Royal meeting was likely to play out. Before the first race on Tuesday, Aidan O’Brien was a 2-5 chance to outscore the combined forces of the Godolphin operation over the meeting, but a 3-0 drubbing by the royal blue squad during the course of the afternoon has turned the market on its head.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
