The Thyestes Chase from Gowran Park on Thursday is one of the most competitive and valuable handicap chases in the Irish racing calendar. This is the local track for champion trainer Willie Mullins and the handler has saddled the winner three times in the last six years. Polidam is BetVictor’s 5/1 favourite for the 2018 renewal with Gordon Elliot’s Ucello Conti – runner up in the corresponding race 12 months ago – 7/1 and Noel Meade’s A Genie in Abottle 8/1 at BetVictor.
The weather was beaten by the majority of our clubs and they warmed up spectators with some breathtaking action. We’ve gone through the results across the three divisions and picked out five things we can take from another busy weekend. The form side in the National League having won five out of six, nobody quite expected their thrashing of leaders Macclesfield on Saturday. Dave Challinor’s have fired an extremely loud warning shot with their 6-0 demolition.
For the uninitiated, Power Rankings serve as a way of comparing teams against each other using a variety of factors. It’s not an exact science but we’ve looked through each club’s recent performances and results, factored in the difficulty of those games, their position in the table and also considered their pre-season expectations. As you would expect, a lot of the top teams feature but you may be surprised by some of our leading names. Is your club missing when they should have made the list?
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".
