Top trainer looks to repeat Carlisle success in new season

By | Rhodes Media Blogs | No Comments

Racing’s speed kings are heading back to Carlisle – and one leading trainer is already eyeing a repeat of his most famous triumph at the course.

Flat racing returns to Cumbria on Monday May 21 with the first fixture of 2018. It will be followed by a season packed with top quality racing, historic meetings and live music events.

Trainer Richard Fahey is certainly relishing a new season at Carlisle and a repeat of his 2017 success.

Fahey triumphed in the coveted Carlisle Bell for the first time in his illustrious career and finished as the course’s top trainer with a stunning final day treble.

Those victories helped his Musley Bank stables to 200 winners in the year, the second time they’ve managed the feat. Now he’s hoping that Cumbria will once again prove a happy hunting ground.

Fahey said: “We Like Carlisle. We’ve sent plenty of horses over the years and this season will be no different.

“You don’t get many hard luck stories at Carlisle. It’s a fair track. By that I mean you can win from the outside, there’s plenty of room to get around.”

That’s exactly what Fahey’s Carnageo did under Paul Hanagan when coming from behind to take the historic Bell in June and justify his 13-2 joint favourite starting price.

Fahey, based at Malton, North Yorkshire, said: “He came from a long way back that day. He got a good gallop on.”

That success at Carlisle’s showcase Flat meeting in June was followed with three winners as the season drew to a close in September.

Fahey trailed Keith Dalgleish going into the Durdar circuit’s final meeting. But wins for Powerful Society, Ocean Voyage and Billy Bond – at 20-1 in the very last race – meant Fahey finished with 10 winners and the track’s top spot for 2017.

This time, the stable’s early season has been blighted by the poor weather meaning Fahey hasn’t seen as much as he would like of some of his charges. Decisions on likely runners for the opening fixture on Monday May 21 have yet to be made.

He added: “We’re behind where we want to be but it looks like we’re in for some dry weather now, so we’ve got some catching up to do.”

Fahey wants to notch a third season of 200-plus winners and ultimately to beat the £4m in prize money secured last year.

He’s also looking for a new name to lead the charge after the retirement of his star thoroughbred, Ribchester.

Sands of Mali could be that horse. Already a winner at Chantilly in April he looks set for a tilt at the Group 1 Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot.

Fahey will join a host of leading trainers at Carlisle’s season debut on May 21.

Dalgleish, pipped for the course’s leading trainer crown in 2017, is a big supporter of the course and landed the 2016 Carlisle Bell with Edgar Balthazar.

And the course’s General Manager Molly Dingwall cannot wait to welcome the jockeys, trainers, horses and punters to the course.

Molly said: “The course is looking great and we have a packed season ahead.

“Carlisle Bell and Cumberland Plate day always throws up some intriguing match-ups and, of course, on the day we will crown the latest winner of a race which has been run since the days of Elizabeth I.

“Both trainers and jockeys love coming to Carlisle and the real test it gives them. We’ve seen some great horses here down the years we are looking forward to see what this season brings.

“Alongside the top racing we also have some amazing social events coming up, so it’s fair to say we cannot wait to welcome everyone here from May 21.”

Immediately following the show it was announced that Taylor Jones and Dane Lloyd, who hail from Blackwood in South Wales, would join Tom on his 2017 summer dates.

And now Tom has further cemented his support for Into the Ark by inviting Taylor and Dane to join him on his 2018 summer tour.

Speaking about Summer House Sounds, Taylor and Dane said: “It is absolutely fantastic to be given this amazing opportunity once again. Last year was an absolute whirlwind going straight from The Voice to preparing to tour with the legend that is Sir Tom Jones.

“Since then we have been out on the road virtually non-stop as we build up support for our music and to now get the chance to support Tom on the Summer House Sounds tour is brilliant. We are very flattered.”

Tom Jones’ Summer House Sounds concerts will be a celebration of a career that spans six decades and will see Tom play live against some of the UK’s most beautiful backdrops.

With a career that has seen him sell in excess of 100 million records, Tom Jones has won countless accolades including a BRIT Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music and a Silver Clef Award for Lifetime Achievement.

Knighted by Her Majesty The Queen in 2006, the global star has amassed 36 top 40 UK hits.

Fans attending the concerts are assured of a fantastic night as Tom and his band present a stunning set-list that traverses all eras and genres of popular music.

Summer House Sounds is organised by promoters Cuffe and Taylor who have worked with Tom Jones extensively.

Director Peter Taylor said: “Tom never fails to wow audiences with his amazing voice and talent. We have presented concerts with him on many occasions over the past four years and we are delighted to be working with him once again.

“His support for new music is fantastic too. We presented a show with Into The Ark supporting Tom last summer. They went down an absolute storm so it is great they are joining Tom for all of his Summer House Sounds concerts.”

“This is going to be an amazing series of concerts in some of the most magnificent and beautiful locations.”

Tickets are on sale now from www.ticketmaster.co.uk

As well as music legend Tom Jones, Summer House Sounds will see performances from super cool disco king Nile Rodgers and his band CHIC, the world’s most successful classical crossover group Il Divo, dance DJ Pete Tong and the Heritage Orchestra present Ibiza Classics, and British pop icons Madness all go one step beyond as they visit stately homes across the country for 19 dates throughout July.

Get Ready To Twist and Shout… It’s #FeelgoodFriday at Carlisle Races

By | Rhodes Media Blogs | No Comments

The spirit and sound of Beatlemania is coming to Carlisle Racecourse on Friday June 8th – the course’s annual #FeelgoodFriday!

Following what promises to be another thrilling afternoon of racing world renowned Beatles tribute band – The Mersey Beatles – will play a special post-race gig in the Paddock.

The band – who have played sold out tours of the USA and Europe and were the resident Beatles’ band at Liverpool’s world-famous Cavern Club for a decade – will play a hit-packed set of Fab Four classics.

Molly Dingwall, Carlisle Racecourse’s General Manager, said: “We love our Feelgood Friday events here at Carlisle and we are really excited to be bringing such a great band as The Mersey Beatles to the racecourse.

“They have played sell-out shows around the world and, later this year, are embarking on a big UK tour, so this is a great chance for racing and music fans to see them here first!

“Hopefully the day will be graced with lovely sunshine, some great action on the track and a brilliant post-racing gig in our paddock.

“So get the afternoon off work, put on your dancing shoes and head down here – it will be great to see you!”

This year marks the 55th anniversary of The Beatles playing Carlisle’s former ABC Cinema. Their February 1963 gig is now the stuff of local legend as it was after this show when John, Paul, George and Ringo were famously asked to leave a golf club dance, held at the Crown and Mitre Hotel, for being inappropriately dressed in leather jackets.

Not that fans of the world’s most famous band will encounter any such problems at Carlisle Racecourse on Friday June 8th.

Molly added: “You have no such worries as leather jackets, winklepickers, mini-skirts, or any Rock ’n’ Roll fashions, are more than welcome here on the day!

“The great thing about Feelgood Fridays are they are really relaxed, fun affairs. We want people to come here, let their hair down, enjoy the racing, great live music and have a fantastic time with friends.”

Described by the British Beatles Fan Cub as ‘the best Beatles tribute band’, The Mersey Beatles were all born and grew up in Liverpool. When it comes to stage performance, they brilliantly exude the inner and outer spirit of the original Fab Four from the costumes, the haircuts, the instruments and, of course, that unmistakable and legendary Mersey sound.

They have toured the world many times and can count John Lennon’s sister Julia Baird as a fan. Julia, who is director at The Cavern Club, said: “When I hear The Mersey Beatles, it really IS The Beatles”.

#FeelgoodFriday with The Mersey Beatles is on Friday June 8th. Gates open 12pm. First race is 2pm, last race 5pm. Adult tickets are £15 (in advance) or £18 (on the day).  All under 18s get in free when accompanied by an adult.

Brian Hughes Returns To Carlisle To Take Crown As Top Jumps Jockey

By | Rhodes Media Blogs | No Comments

Brian Hughes is back for Carlisle’s final National Hunt meeting of the season on Tuesday when he will be crowned the course’s top jumps jockey.

Ulsterman Hughes has enjoyed a fantastic 2017/18 season. He has chalked up more than 130 winners – 11 of those at Carlisle – including leading Waiting Patiently to an impressive win in Cumbria’s blue ribband jumps race, the Colin Parker Memorial Chase.

Now, fresh from riding Seeyouatmidnight to an eleventh-placed finish in Saturday’s Randox Health Grand National, Hughes goes into Tuesday’s season-closing meeting at Carlisle six winners clear of his nearest course rival Craig Nichol.

And he has no fewer than five rides in the seven-race card.

Molly Dingwall, Carlisle Racecourse’s General Manager, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Brian back to the course again on Tuesday for our final jumps meeting of the season.

“He has been a regular here throughout the year and he has chalked up some really impressive wins, none more so than winning the Colin Parker back in November.

“With more than 130 winners to his name this season, Brian is second only to Richard Johnson in the Champion Jockey standings. He is a really popular guy and we are delighted he will finish the season here as our top jumps jockey.”

Among Hughes’ rides on Tuesday is the Donald McCain-saddled Mahler Lad in the 3m 2f Handicap Chase. The eight-year-old won last time out over three miles at Musselburgh in February.

Two other Hughes’ rides with form at Carlisle are Brian Ellison’s Pistol Park, who was second last time here in March, and Lily’s Gem. The Stuart Crawford-saddled five-year-old goes in the National Hunt flat race after posting second when last at the course.

Crawford, who leads the way as Carlisle’s top trainer with five winners this year, also has Crawfords Mill in the 2m 4f Handicap Chase where the five-year-old filly will take on the impressive Onlyfoolsownhorses.

Micky Hammond’s seven-year-old has triumphed in three of his last four outings, including a seven-length win at Carlisle back in May last year, although this is his first outing of the season.

One of the highlights of the day is sure to be be another intriguing match-up between the Lucinda Russell-trained Misfits and Stuart Coltherd’s Achill Road Boy in the Handicap Chase.

The pair fought out a thrilling contest over the same 3m 2f distance at Carlisle on March 31 when Achill Road Boy edged it by three quarters of a length.

Molly added: “It has been a good season here at Carlisle and we have seen some thrilling jumps racing.

“We lost a number of meetings earlier this year due to the weather, but ever since we have been delighted with the attendances which go to show National Hunt racing is a big draw here at this wonderful racecourse.

“After Tuesday, it’s then all systems go as we prepare for the return of the speed kings of racing, and the start of our flat season on Monday May 21.”

Gates open on Tuesday at 12.10pm. First race is 2.10pm and the last race is 5.40pm. Adult tickets are £15 (in advance) or £18 (on the day). All under 18s get in free when accompanied by an adult.

Kim Wilde hits the road for 2018 UK tour

By | Rhodes Media Blogs | No Comments

Kim Wilde’s 2018 UK Tour hits the road over the next month – and the pop icon cannot wait to step onto the stage.

The multi-award-winning artist – who has sold more than 30 million records worldwide – has just released her critically acclaimed 14th studio album Here Come The Aliens.

Packed with modern pop classics – such as ‘Pop Don’t Stop’ and new single ‘Kandy Krush’ – the album is now followed by Kim’s first full UK tour since 1982.

And Kim says she is thrilled to be bringing the all-new show, which mixes her sensational new material with her hit-packed back catalogue, to fans across the UK.

Kim said: “I am really excited to be going out on the road – my first UK tour in more than 30 years!

“Myself and my band want to put big smiles on everyone’s faces, and make it a night they won’t forget, and to thank the public for all their love and support over so many years.

“I love to sing and share our music with the crowd, those moments are incredibly rare and precious, and we all know how lucky we all are to have this as our job and savour every moment we’re on stage!

“We have all grown up together and shared a chunk of life and survived it with our sense of humour intact, now that’s something that deserves to be celebrated.”

Kim will appear with a seven-strong band which features her brother, and ‘Here Come The Aliens’ producer Ricky Wilde on lead and rhythm guitar alongside guitarist Neil Jones. Paul Cooper (bass), and drummers Jonathan Atkinson and Emily Dolan Davies are joined by Stevie Power (keyboards) and Scarlett Wilde (backing vocals).

As for what fans can expect from the show, Kim added: “It’s a combination of old classic hits and, of course, songs from the new album including ‘Pop Don’t Stop’ and our latest single ‘Kandy Krush’, although we have extended and rearranged them for extra impact!

“We’ve added a few rare tracks that should delight faithful fans as well as fitting in perfectly with all the new songs. It is just how we wanted the new tracks to work, to accompany and compliment the old hits while bringing fresh new energy and creativity to them.

“On another creative note I have enlisted the talent of Christopher Wilmer, a costume designer and stylist I discovered in 2013 while making a video. Chris has come up with some quite astonishing costume ideas for this tour which should have the camera shutters exploding with activity as soon as I hit the stage!”

With such a stellar back catalogue, which includes the smash-hits ‘Kids in America’, ‘Chequered Love’, ‘Cambodia’, ‘If I Can’t Have You’, ‘You Keep Me Hangin’ On’ and ‘You Came’, Kim believes she and Ricky have put together a set-list to please fans old and new.

Kim added: “Ricky and I sat down a few months back to decide on the initial list of songs, of course some choose themselves like Kids in America and You Came, but we have chosen a few rarely heard tracks from the past that we felt fitted in particularly well with the new material.

“Choosing songs from the new album was particularly hard as every track is so strong, and the reaction from the public for every single one of them has been incredible! Any tracks missing will certainly be re-visited in subsequent tours, so not to worry!”

Kim Wilde’s new album ’Here Comes The Aliens’ is out now on Wildeflower Records.
Tickets for Kim’s 2018 UK Tour are on sale from www.ticketmaster.com

Tickets go on sale at 9am Friday March 30 via www.scarboroughopenairtheatre.com

James – who have sold more than 25 million records worldwide – have released 14 studio albums over the past 30 years which have gained both critical and commercial acclaim.

The band’s most recent release, 2016’s Girl at the End of the World – which includes such stunning songs as Nothing But Love, Girl At The End Of The World and Dear John – hit No.2 in the UK Album charts and became their most successful album in almost 20 years.

James’s enduring creativity and musical legacy has made them one of the most influential British indie bands of the last four decades. After signing to Factory Records in 1982, they went on to release a series of massive hit singles and have built a huge, loyal and fanatical fanbase.

James’s Yorkshire-born lead singer Tim Booth said: “We’re looking forward to playing this lovely venue and very happy that there is no longer a moat to cross. My walking on the water training wasn’t going so well!”

The band’s Scarborough OAT show is presented by Cuffe and Taylor. Director Peter Taylor said: “James are rightly regarded as one of the most important and influential pioneers of the Manchester music scene since the 1980s.

“We have had so many people ask for us to bring them back to Scarborough OAT so we are delighted we have been able to add them to what is undoubtedly the biggest and best line up ever seen at Scarborough OAT.”
