Mouse Morris remains quietly confident about the chances of Rule The World in the Neptune Investment Management Novices’ Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival next week. “He’s going over there in good fettle and we’re looking forward to it. I’m not worried about the ground – I don’t think it makes any difference to him.” Rule The World and Pont Alexandre are among 24 confirmations for the Neptune, with Mullins also responsible for Champagne Fever, Mozoltov and Un Atout – although that trio could all run elsewhere. The Nigel Twiston-Davies-trained The New One and Jonjo O’Neill’s Challow scorer Taquin Du Seuil look the pick of the home team, with Puffin Billy and Chatterbox also interesting at double-figure odds. Although his Willie Mullins-trained compatriot Pont Alexandre is all the rage for the two-mile-five-furlong contest, three-time winner Rule The World has rather crept under the radar, despite his most impressive win at Naas in early January. “He’s done nothing wrong and he’ll definitely run in the Neptune,” said the County Tipperary trainer.

Pellegrini said: “They have very good players and they are in a very good moment, so we have to play a very good game if we want to win. “For me it is not a surprise. Last year it was a very strong squad with very good players and this year they have increased their squad, they have more and better players. “But there is a long way to go, it is just four games and we play 38. We will see what happens in future. “I think that we didn’t start badly. Maybe the game we lost here against Stoke that was an unusual game, but we hope we recover here, playing at home, and get three points on Sunday.” City are still without striker Stevan Jovetic and midfielder Fernando due to injury, but Pellegrini is planning to unleash Sergio Aguero. The Argentina forward has been used only sparingly this term as he is eased back into action following a series of muscle injuries in the second half of last season, including the World Cup. Jose Mourinho places no significance on Chelsea’s double success over City last season as he continues to seek perfection. Chelsea twice beat City in the Premier League – and lost 2-0 in the FA Cup – only to finish four points behind Pellegrini’s men in the race for the title. The Blues came unstuck against ‘lesser’ opposition, but have begun the current campaign following a summer strengthening exercise with four wins from four games and sit five points clear of Sunday’s opponents. Mourinho said: “What happened last year and seasons before I don’t think has a relation to this season. It’s a completely different story. “It doesn’t matter the record we had last season against City. We respect them totally, because they deserve that respect, but at the same time we believe in us and we want to win. “Can we go there and win like we did last season? Obviously we can, but can we lose? We also can. And I don’t think statistics play a part in this. “I want to win this game to get three points. I’m totally focused on three points and the Premier League 2015, (rather) than history.” Chelsea’s momentum was checked by Schalke in midweek as the Blues began their Champions League Group G campaign with a draw; City started theirs against German opposition also, losing at Bayern Munich. “We had four victories, we couldn’t win two days ago,” Mourinho added. “We were always scoring three, four, five, six goals and in the last match we scored only one. “We try to improve in every aspect. The perfect situation is to score a lot of goals and not concede. We have to chase that perfection.” Costa will start for Chelsea, despite a hamstring problem. The striker, who has scored seven goals in four Premier League matches, was only a substitute in Wednesday’s Champions League draw with Schalke and cannot play more than one full game a week at present. “He is fresh for Sunday and I am sure he will make a difference.” Pellegrini’s men are just four games into their Barclays Premier League title defence, but already trail leaders Chelsea by five points. The thought of falling eight points behind by losing at the Etihad Stadium is one Pellegrini does not want to contemplate. Recent results do not make good reading for City, who have not won in three in all competitions, but Pellegrini is focusing on turning statistics in his favour with a victory. The Chilean said: “I always try to think of positives, so I hope we are not going to lose and we not going to go eight points behind Chelsea. “I think we were unlucky in the last two games – against Bayern Munich in the way we lost with that goal and against Arsenal we deserved to win the three points. “But things happen. We must win our next game at home and with that we will be two points behind the leader. “That for me will be a very good start after playing Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea. That is why it is important to win on Sunday.” City will need to find a way to halt Chelsea’s in-form striker Diego Costa, who has hit the ground running at Stamford Bridge. The £32million Spain international has scored seven in his first four Premier League appearances, including a hat-trick against Swansea last weekend. Another summer signing, Cesc Fabregas, has also made a big impression and quickly built up a dangerous understanding with Costa. Press Association Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini sees this weekend’s early-season clash with title rivals Chelsea as a ‘must-win’ encounter.
The JP McManus-owned 10-year-old was a 10-1 chance off the back of a wide-margin success at Naas in February and travelled with plenty of zest in the hands of Mark Walsh. Jacksonslady was tracked by fellow McManus runner Ned Buntline, the 7-2 favourite, as well as Upazo rounding the home turn, but she saw them both off in the end. Philip Dempsey’s admirable mare Jacksonslady claimed an eighth career victory in the Three.ie Handicap Chase at Punchestown. Upazo beat Ned Buntline to the runner-up spot, beaten five lengths by the winner. Dempsey said: “I’m delighted. She’s been going great and I was very happy with her. “She is going to stud and it’s great to get that. Hopefully she’ll go to Galway. Probably for the Plate which is the obvious race. She could have a little break now. “Mark said she was flat out early but he got there too soon in the end. When the other horse came to her she picked up again. “She has the heart of lion and loves a battle. I don’t think she’s ever come out the wrong side of a battle.” Heavily supported favourite Bog War lunged late under David Mullins to claim the Murray Spelman Handicap Hurdle. A winner at Navan at the end of March and Fairyhouse little over a week ago, the Liam Cusack-trained Bog War was the 5-2 market leader to complete a hat-trick in this fiercely competitive 25-runner contest over the minimum distance. Mullins settled the five-year-old in midfield for much of the two-mile journey before allowing him to close down the leaders before the home turn. Bog War tracked 20-1 chance A Sizing Network into the final flight and looked to have blown his chance after a mistake, but he got rolling again on the run-in and passed the post a head to the good. Seeyouallincoppers and Equity Swap filled out the places in third and fourth respectively. Cusack said: “It’s great that he followed up. I was a little worried coming back after a week as he normally gets a bit of time. “The fact that he didn’t have a hard race helped. He was eating well and seemed in good shape. It was worth chancing as it was a good pot. “He’s game and is a progressive horse. He’s unlucky not to have won four in a row and seems to be getting stronger all the time. “He was 24th in the ballot and just scraped in. He wouldn’t have got in without the penalty. David’s claim was a huge advantage and he knows the horse. “We’ll have to think about a nice handicap hurdle now. He’s rated 64 on the Flat and I wouldn’t rule that out but he certainly won’t run for a while and we’ll take it easy now. “We’ll think about Galway and there is a little race at Leopardstown in the New Year which he might sneak into the bottom of.” Press Association
Arsenal coasted to a 3-0 victory after Olivier Giroud had opened the scoring soon after the restart – the 2,000th goal of Wenger’s 19-year reign – but it was a different story in the first period as Swansea threatened to inflict more agony on the Gunners. Swansea beat Arsenal home and away last season and Garry Monk’s men should have taken the lead when Bafetimbi Gomis was put through clean on goal but failed to beat Petr Cech. Press Association “The three points was the most important thing today and it was good to keep a clean sheet. “It was a different game after we scored the first goal.” Swansea have now won only one of their last seven games and slipped one place to 13th on the back of this defeat. “It’s disappointing and we feel hard done by because there were a lot of positives,” Monk said after a fourth home game without success. “In the first half especially we were the better team, playing good football and creating good chances. “But the first two goals are disappointing and the mistakes we made you can’t do against anybody, let alone a side with the quality of Arsenal.” Monk insisted Swansea were hard done by both on the Koscielny goal and the Mertesacker handball incident. “I’ve seen fouls given pretty much every time when Fabianski comes, but the referee decided it wasn’t and perhaps Fab could have punched it. “I’ve played in many games where whenever the keeper is touched a foul is given, but I don’t expect things to go for us. “I also knew it was handball at the time but I couldn’t tell if it was intentional. But it clearly is, he moves his hand towards the ball to stop it. “So I feel for the players because we were much better, much more like ourselves.” Arsene Wenger admitted Arsenal had to overcome their Liberty Stadium anxiety before recording a fifth successive Barclays Premier League win. Monk also felt Swansea should have been awarded a first-half penalty when Per Mertesacker appeared to handle Gylfi Sigurdsson’s free-kick, but Arsenal were clinical after the break as a controversial Laurent Koscielny effort and an emphatic Joel Campbell strike maintained the pressure on leaders Manchester City. “It’s always a difficult game here and last season they took six points from us,” Wenger said. “We were a bit edgy coming here and the first half was very difficult for us. “But in the second half there was tempo to our game and after we scored the first goal we were a different team. “I rested eight players on Tuesday (in the Capital One Cup defeat at Sheffield Wednesday) so it took us a while to get into the tempo of the game.” Koscielny doubled Arsenal’s lead after 68 minutes despite appearing to back into Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski when Hector Bellerin’s cross was deflected into the air. Fabianski was also challenged by Giroud but referee Kevin Friend felt no offence had been committed and Koscielny stabbed the loose ball home. “I didn’t see a foul, maybe I missed something and need to watch it,” Wenger said.
