Horses can be fragile at the best of times and the 2016 King George VI Chase winner was ruled out of the Gold Cup for the second successive season earlier this month. After two runs on his comeback from a different injury, the 10-year-old sustained a stress fracture and trainer Colin Tizzard has put him on the sidelines for the rest of the campaign. There has to be a question mark over whether he will come back to his best.
In just weeks around 260,000 visitors will be flocking through the gates of Cheltenham Racecourse for the fourth biggest sporting event in the whole of the UK. A total of 28 championship races are run across the four days of The Festival, showcasing the best National Hunt horses and jockeys anywhere in the world.
Hold your horses- a charity football match starring Sir AP McCoy has become an annual fixture. The 20 times champion and his team of jockeys took on the Cheltenham Town Legends at Whaddon Road in April 2017, after a day's racing in the town. It was all in aid of the Injured Jockeys' Fund and raised a staggering £25,000. Its success meant organiser Chris Coley was keen to do it all over again so he has pencilled in April 18 on the calendar.
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".
