CARROLL GOES FOR THIRD PLATE WITH AMIS HOLIDAY Trainer Josie Carroll, who has already won two Queens Plates (Edenwold in 2006, Inglorious in 2011), will try for a third one on Sunday with Ivan Dalos homebred Amis Holiday. Aboard will be Luis Contreras, who teamed with Carroll to win not only the Plate, but the Woodbine Oaks with the filly Inglorious. Amis Holiday, a son of Harlans Holiday-Victorious Ami, has only started twice this year, finishing a good fourth to Mr. Speaker in the Grade 3 Lexington at Keeneland on April 19, before a troubled third, just a neck behind the disqualified winner and Plate rival Asserting Bear, in the Marine Stakes at Woodbine on May 25. "It was a great effort," said Carroll, about the Marine. "But it was a disappointing race because the horse didnt get a clean trip and show what he could do. That was a little troubling." About the Lexington, "He ran a tremendous race. For the amount of time hed been off, I was very impressed with what he did." Last year, Amis Holiday broke his maiden at first asking and then stepped up to stakes company and promptly won the Grade 3 Grey. That effort made him the 3-5 choice to win the rich Coronation Futurity but he endured a difficult trip, ending up fifth before being disqualified. Since the Marine, Amis Holiday has been busy with four solid works, including a sharp five furlong breeze in 59 3/5 seconds last Sunday. "Hes just a very nice, very easy horse to train. He does everything you ask him to." About the Plate, Carroll, who is also the only female conditioner to ever win the race, added, "Its a big field and this horse has already had a couple of troubled trips. He just really needs a clean trip. Hes coming up to the race in really good order. Hes bred to go a distance. Everythings right about him. Now we just have to see if things work out on the day." ONE DESTINY ON EDGE, BUT SET FOR RACE One Destiny is still touch and go to make the final field for Sundays Queens Plate, but hes been training like hes ready to run a career race. The son of Dance to Destiny is currently ranked 16th on a list of 16 horses (by purse earnings) expected to start in the 155th edition of the 1 ¼-mile event. If two more horses do enter, One Destiny could be on the outside looking in as a maximum of 17 are allowed in the gate for the race. Trainer Alec Fehr, who also owns a piece of the Ontario-bred with Winston Penny, knows the potential storyline. "Are we going to get in? Were kind of on the edge, arent we?" he wondered. The answer to the first question will be answered definitively on Thursday morning at the breakfast draw for the race. But on Monday, Fehr spoke assuredly about the current condition of the horse, who has one win in three 2014 starts. "Hes doing really fine," Fehr said. "He had a really nice work (on Sunday; a bullet five furlongs in :59, breezing). Hes come out of the work in good order and very sharp today. All is well." Fehr says his tactical speed will serve the horse well. "If you look at his races, he really didnt get to run in any of his three races. Hes got any kind of speed. He can be a six-furlong horse or a mile and a quarter horse. He can be wherever in a race, but Id like to be close to the front (in the Plate)." Justin Stein, who won the 2012 Queens Plate aboard Strait of Dover, gets the call on Sunday. RHYTHM BLUES LOOKS TO ORCHESTRATE PLATE WIN NO. 3 FOR GONZALEZ Will this years edition of the Queens Plate be the same old song for two-time winning trainer Nick Gonzalez? In 2010, it was Big Red Mike who stepped up to the mike for Gonzalez and hit No. 1 on the Plate chart. Last year, it was Midnight Aria who had the veteran horseman humming a winning Queens Plate tune. This year, hes hoping Rhythm Blues will take centre stage in front of a packed house in the "Gallop for the Guineas." "My one thought all along is that he would get better the more he raced," said Gonzalez, of the chestnut son of Tale of the Cat. "His speed figures have gone up each time. I thought he ran a credible race in the Plate Trial (Rhythm Blues was fourth to We Miss Artie in the 1 1/8-mile Plate prep on June 15). He can still get better and hopefully, he is at his best on the big day." Sporting a record of one win, one second and two thirds from eight starts, the Hillsbrook Farms silk-bearer has raced at Delaware, Parx, Gulfstream Park and Keeneland, with his past two efforts coming at Woodbine. "Hes a stalker, not a speed horse," offered Gonzalez. "I dont see him being too far out of it. He isnt afraid to be in the mix, inside, outside, wherever. Weve had good fortune on two occasions to win this race. Hopefully, we can have some luck again this time."

As analysts we do the same thing, so here are some observations from week one. First there were two major upsets. I should say, major upsets in the eyes of the fans and prognosticators. Kenny Stabler Jersey .ca has you covered for whos in, whos out and what to expect from all 30 teams. http://www.authenticraiderspro.com/John-matuszak-raiders-jersey/ . Louis still looking for a way out of Tampa Bay, the 38-year-old NHL veteran isnt showing his cards. Howie Long Jersey . -- Desperate to stop Tom Bradys latest comeback bid, the Miami Dolphins sought help from a reserve safety making his NFL debut after being signed Tuesday off the San Francisco 49ers practice squad. Antonio Brown Jersey .com) - Thursday marks the official debut of a new dirt racing surface at Meydan Racecourse.Each week, TSN.ca takes a look at the top available players in fantasy football ahead of the weekly waiver deadline. Quarterbacks Derek Carr, Oakland Raiders (vs. Cardinals) Last Week: 18/34, 282 yards, 4 TDs, 1 INT Carr’s breakout game coincided with Tony Sparano’s coaching debut and the Raiders’ abandonment of Dennis Allen’s ultra-conservative offensive game plan. Gone are the days of 0-yard passes for the rookie QB as Carr was among the league leaders in 20+ yard passes in Week 6. Carr is still very much a QB2 or bye week replacement at this point, but he’s a promising young QB who, with the vertical passing game now opened up in Oakland, is now worth a look. His Week 6 line would have looked even better if it weren’t for the five drops accumulated by Raiders receivers, but that’s a problem Carr will likely have to deal with all season. While Teddy Bridgwater very much came back to earth on Sunday, another rookie QB showing promise and worth a look in deep fantasy leagues is Jacksonville’s Blake Bortles. Joe Flacco, Baltimore Ravens (vs. Falcons) Last Week: 21/29, 306 yards, 5 TDs There’s at least a decent chance Flacco is owned in your fantasy league but if he’s not, he should be. The veteran QB was on his way to the greatest fantasy score ever on Sunday before the Ravens took their foot off the gas pedal against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Flacco isn’t a very good quarterback, except that he might be. His real football value is hard to figure out but his fantasy football value is clearer: Flacco’s playing like a borderline QB1 who may still be available on the waiver wire. Running Backs Antone Smith, Atlanta Falcons (at Ravens) Last Week: 2 carries, 5 yards; 4 receptions, 64 yards, 1 TD The Falcons backfield hierarchy is very hard to figure out; four backs got carries last week, Steven Jackson leading the way with a paltry six. What isn’t hard to figure out is Smith’s value as a playmaker. Although he only received two carries against the Chicago Bears Sunday, the RB was utilized in the passing game where he more clearly showcased his talent. Worst case scenario owning Smith is you have a boom-or-bust RB that’s shown he can be a game-breaker. Best case is head coach Mike Smith follows through on his promise to involve Smith in the offence more and the talented runner gets the opportunity to really reward fantasy owners. Darren McFadden, Oakland Raiders (vs. Cardinals) Last Week: 14 carries, 80 yards; 2 receptions, 6 yards A funny thing happens when you open up the passing game, your running back faces far less crowded fronts and even if he is as pedestrian as McFadden has proven to be, he can rack up yards. All joking aside, McFadden had his best game of the year Sunday against the San Diego Chargers and it’s clear even with Sparano in charge, he’s the preferred back for carries over Maurice Jones-Drew. Storm Johnson, Jacksonville Jaguars (vs. Browns) Last Week: 10 carries, 21 yards, 1 TD Johnsoon is on this list because every starting running back in the league should be owned, even the one starting for the Jaguars.dddddddddddd Johnson’s below average day was saved by a touchdown but that certainly won’t happen every week in Jacksonville’s offence. Toby Gerhart failed and Johnson likely will too in this environment. He’s probably best kept on your bench. Wide Receivers Andre Holmes, Oakland Raiders (vs. Cardinals) Last Week: 4 receptions (8 targets), 121 yards, 2 TDs Holmes is the third Raiders player to make this week’s list, another beneficiary of Sparano opening things up on offence in Oakland. While James Jones may end up with more targets, and would be a decent waiver wire pickup as well, Holmes is clearly Carr’s deep threat option so the potential for big plays is higher with the third-year receiver. Robert Woods, Buffalo Bills (vs. Vikings) Last Week: 7 receptions (10 targets), 78 yards, 1 TD Woods has a lot of things going in his favour these days. Kyle Orton is a more capable QB than EJ Manuel, the Bills have apparently moved on from Mike Williams, and opponents are locking in on top option Sammy Watkins. Watkins won’t be shut down every week like he was on Revis Island against the Patriots, but he’ll still usually garner the attention of opponent’s top CB which could lead to enough opportunity for Woods, now clearly the team’s No. 2 receiver, to put up strong fantasy lines. Odell Beckham Jr., New York Giants (at Cowboys) Last Week: 2 receptions (4 targets), 28 yards I had Beckham on the list last week and despite his disappointing line Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, I’m even higher on the rookie heading into Week 7. The reason of course is Victor Cruz’s season-ending knee injury. It comes in terrible circumstances of course, but Beckham now moves up the depth chart one spot and will get increased opportunity to capitalize on his potential. I was also impressed by Beckham’s college teammate and fellow rookie Jarvis Landry, who put up a strong line for the Miami Dolphins Sunday and could be worth a look at well. Tight Ends Jace Amaro, New York Jets (vs. Browns) Last Week: 10 receptions (12 targets), 68 yards, 1 TD Amaro’s breakout performance should be tampered a bit because he’s still in the Jets awful offence. But the rookie proved he can be, and probably will be a pass-catching threat for years to come. If Geno Smith continues to target Amaro at the rate he did on Sunday, the Texas Tech alum should be able to manage enough yards to be considered a borderline TE1. That remains to be seen. Clay Harbor, Jacksonville Jaguars (vs. Browns) Last Week: 3 receptions (4 targets), 91 yards, 1 TD Harbor will be hard-pressed to ever repeat his Week 6 line but until Marcedes Lewis returns from injury, he’ll remain rookie QB Bortles’ safety valve and trusted target which could be good enough for a bye week replacement start.
