Solo goes for repeat performance

first_imgSolo Performer attempts to uphold form with a couple of old foes when he takes the plunge in the feature race beneath the Dundalk floodlights. Press Association The Harry Rogers-trained eight-year-old had the returning duo of Gretzky and Paddy The Celeb well held over this mile-and-a-half trip towards the end of March. Now he gets the chance to add further credence to that half-length success in the www.dundalkstadium.com Handicap. center_img Solo Performer is 3lb higher than when he struck last month, but he won at Dundalk over an extended mile and a quarter in January 2012 off this same mark of 90. Chris Hayes has won six races aboard the gelded son of Distant Music and renews the partnership in the 20,000 euro contest. Among the opposition is Fairview Star, a recent course-and-distance winner. Eoin Griffin’s charge successfully switched to the Flat following a rather inauspicious spell over hurdles and in bumpers. Something Graceful is also entitled to improve for her fifth-placed finish in a mile-and-a-half handicap at the Curragh a fortnight ago. Jim Bolger’s four-year-old filly appeared ill at ease on the soft ground and remains 3lb lower in the weights than when she won over a mile and a quarter at Leopardstown last August. There could be plenty more to come from Muizenberg Nights in the Hen & Stag Packages At Dundalk Stadium Handicap after she broke her duck over this same track and trip earlier this month, though Tommy Stack’s filly faces some in-form rivals in the shape of Versilia Gal, Monakova and Toberton. The Dundalk Stadium On Facebook Maiden brings proceedings to a close and Dermot Weld’s Spirit Of Concorde is sure to be very popular. The Authorized gelding has found only one too good on both starts to date and he should be sharper for his recent reappearance run. last_img read more

Weekly Wrapup: Top 5 Web Trends of 2009, New iTunes Features, Real-Time Blogs, And More…

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#web#Weekly Wrap-ups 5. The Internet of ThingsThe fifth and final part of our series is about the Internet of Things, when real world objects (such as fridges, lights and toasters) get connected to the Internet. In 2009, this trend has ramped up and is adding a significant amount of new data to the Web.Other Web TrendsForget the iTunes LP, Apps are the New Album The “iTunes LP” was just one of many new iTunes features revealed this week. Butit has a heavy burden on its shoulders. It’s supposed to revitalize the music industry by encouraging consumers to once again purchase entire albums as opposed to single tracks. However, innovative artists are already discovering how to monetize their music while engaging fans in new ways that have nothing to do with a re-imagined LP. Instead, the “interactive format” of the future isn’t the album, it’s the app.In 8 Years, Online Video Consumption Will be Measured in Exabytes One exabyte is a billion gigabytes. It’s one quintillion bytes. And yes, “quintillion” is a number so large, it almost seems made-up. But that’s how much online video will be consumed by 2017, according to new reports from U.K.-based research firm Coda. Actually, to be precise, they’re claiming that mobile broadband users accessing the net via laptops and netbooks will consume 1.8 exabytes of video. Per month. How Facebook Beat MySpace: From College Dorm to Platform Two years ago Danah Boyd described Facebook as “hegemonic” and MySpace as the haven of “subaltern” teens. Whether Boyd intended it or not, Facebook became characterized as the privileged space of college kids and MySpace was plagued with the perception of lowbrow tackiness. But now, according to a recent Hitwise blog post, Facebook is not only beating MySpace’s traffic – it’s the second ranked site overall in the US behind Google.SEE MORE WEB TRENDS COVERAGE IN OUR TRENDS CATEGORYA Word from Our SponsorsWe’d like to thank ReadWriteWeb’s sponsors, without whom we couldn’t bring you all these stories every week!Mashery is the leading provider of API management services.Domain.ME, the official registry for all .ME Domains.Codero, Dedicated Hosting with Backup & Managed Services.Faroo, Real-Time search.Groupsite.com, How Groups Make Things Happen.Crowd Science gives you detailed visitor demographics.hakia is a semantic search engine.Rackspace provides dedicated server hosting.Aplus provides web hosting services for small business hosting needs.MediaTemple provides hosting for RWW.SixApart provides our publishing software MT4. 3.
