Six starters have been declared for today’s open-allowance feature over 1400 metres for the Gladiator Trophy, including super fit CAMPESINO, who faces two tough opponents in PHINEAS and LONG RUNNING TRAIN.Significantly, all three were prepared for the December 5 Diamond Mile, but none managed to get into the race, having failed to secure the necessary earnings to make the top 16. They were placed on the reserve list instead, and with the first 16 entries standing their ground, CAMPESINO, in particular, at number one on the reserve list, failed to squeeze into the race, much to the displeasure of his owner Howard Hamilton.Today, CAMPESINO has a glorious opportunity to resume winning ways with outgoing champion jockey Dane Nelson riding for 14-time champion trainer Philip Feanny.CAMPESINO is still in fine fettle following his good second to the progressive POKER STAR in the fast-run Glen Mills Caribbean Sprint on November 14.In this small field, the five-year-old son of Campadre-Yaella should get first run on the recent Coca Cola Invitational Mile winner PHINEAS from the Andrew McDonald stables and Harry Parsard’s 3-y-o filly LONG RUNNING TRAIN, now bidding for a hat-trick, into the straight. And this should prove a decisive factor in CAMPESINO’S winning bid.PHINEAS beat him by 13/4 lengths when they last met over this trip back in June and went on to beat none other than subsequent Diamond Mile winner SEEKING MY DREAM by a head in the Invitational Mile. But CAMPESINO enjoys a 4.5 kg swing in the scales today, and, if anything, is a better horse now. He thus gets my vote.The day’s supporting feature for the War Zone Sprint Trophy has attracted 12 starters, including top contenders ROYAL ASSAULT, with Shane Ellis riding for trainer Anthony Nunes and recent winner FEARLESS FURY, who is unbeaten in two starts. The latter will be ridden by promising 4.0 kg claiming apprentice Dane Dawkins for trainer Fitzroy Glispie, and the fact that he is set to receive 7.0 kg from the speedy ROYAL ASSAULT, tilts the balance in his favour.I also like ELVIRA in the second race; JAMAI RAJA in the third for maiden two-year-olds; as well as down-in-class RAGING PROSPECT IN The fifth; YOGA in the sixth; and the recently disqualified winner, PRINCE O’SHAUN, in the 12th and final.

CALGARY (660 NEWS) – The markets are now open and we will soon see if the Alberta government’s actions to cut oil production in the province will help with the price of oil.On Sunday, Rachel Notley announced an 8.7 per cent cutback on production across the province.Dan McTeague is a petroleum analyst.He believes whether or not the government made this move, there would be job losses.“For many companies, this may not be the outcome that they wanted, but spreading around the pain seems to be the only thing you could do with an environment where doing nothing would only lead to further catastrophe.”While this was certainly not the government’s first choice of action, McTeague believes it is the right course of action.“I think jobs would be affected either way,” he said. “We have to look at the absolute carnage in jobs that have taken place up to now. I think it’s short-term pain for long-term gain.”He notes the short term success on the markets will also be heavily impacted by some global moves.He sees the thawing of the trade war between the U.S. and China as a major factor.“There is also a likelihood that OPEC will cut back dramatically on production along with Russia.”

UK retail chain Currys and PC World is to launch transactional movies on-demand service Knowhow Movies tomorrow.Currys has signed deals with Hollywood studios Disney, Pixar, Warner Bros and Momentum Pictures for a range of new movies in their DVD release window as well as catalogue titles. New releases will be priced at £3.99 (€4.70) to rent and £12.99 to buy, with catalogue titles priced from £2.99 to rent and £5.99 to buy. TV shows will be available from £1.99.The company said it had 1,500 titles at launch, of which about 1,000 are movies. Niall O’Keeffe, Knowhow development director, said that he expected deals with other studios to be signed within the next few weeks.The service will be available immediately on PCs and laptops, with content available in 1080p HD resolution. It will be extended to Android and iOS devices in the spring with connected TV platforms to follow in the summer, starting with Samsung, said O’Keeffe. Connected set-tops and games consoles will make Knowhow Movies available in the autumn, he said.O’Keeffe said the chain would take advantage of its retail presence to push the service. “The reason we are looking at this market is that through our stores we sell 4.5 million connected devices annually, and we talk to 19 million customers each year, so we have massive reach,” he said. Currys stores staff have been trained to sell the service at the point of sale, and the company will also market Knowhow Movies gift cards through its stores. O’Keeffe said that the target market was people who had not yet used a connected TV service to consume movies. “Our job is to bring that 90% [of the population] to this technology,” he said. For TV content, Currys is trying to strike deals with studios that will allow it to make content available a day after its linear broadcast.Rovi is providing the technology platform for the service. David Cook, senior vice-president, Rovi entertainment stores sales, said that the platform would allow users to start watching on one device and resume on another, with customers allowed to register up to five devices for the service. The service will use Rovi’s DiVX Plus adaptive bit-rate technology to match streams to the available bandwidth, but will support a range of DRMs.Customers will be able to store content they buy in a cloud-based digital locker. For the present the service is using Rovi’s own platform for this. However, Currys plans to become an Ultraviolet retailer later this year.Currys says that over half the PCs it sells will have links preloaded on the desktop to enable users to access the service. Currys has also teamed up with Intel to make the service available via Intel Insider-enabled PCs and Ultrabooks.
Finish cable operator DNA has commenced a pilot of DVB-C2 cable transmission technology in partnership with Teleste.The operator has completed DVB-C2 tests in its laboratory prior to field testing.“We have not yet decided to deploy DVB-C2 alongside DVB-C. At this stage, we want to ensure the performance of the technology in different network conditions. If we decide to deploy DVB-C2, the solution will be particularly suitable for capacity intensive services, such as various HD channels and VOD services,” said Kari Ruopsa, head of television networks at DNA.
