“We had him ready to run in the Coronation Cup (at Epsom). We were very happy with him and he just tweaked a muscle in his side so he had a nice break after that, but he’s back and has been working away,” the Ballydoyle trainer told At The Races. “He worked nicely the last day he was away. It is very possible he will start in the Foy with a view, if all goes well, of going back to the Arc. “I’m very happy where we are with him at the moment.” Magician is another of O’Brien’s star four-year-olds and his main objective is to bid to repeat last season’s triumph in the Breeders’ Cup Turf. “He’s back in full work. He came back from America in good shape,” he said. “Obviously he’s in the Irish Champion and all those races. He’s building up to the Irish Champions weekend but if he doesn’t run he’ll go away for a work and then come back again. “We have one eye on the Breeders’ Cup Turf with him and that’s where he could finish up at the end of the year. We’ll see what he does in between then.” Press Association Ruler Of The World could make his return to action in the Prix Foy as trainer Aidan O’Brien eyes a second crack at the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. Last year’s Investec Derby hero was only seventh to Treve in the Longchamp feature and has not raced since disappointing in the Dubai World Cup at Meydan in March. A setback in the summer meant Ruler Of The World could not run in the Coronation Cup back at Epsom but O’Brien reports the colt to be 100% again now and the Foy on September 14 has been pencilled in.

JEFF MERZ/Herald photoJocelyn Wack’s streak is now over.Wack’s NCAA record of 80 consecutive matches with double-digit digs fell short Friday night as No. 14 Wisconsin swept No. 9 Purdue at the Field House.Wisconsin’s defense was at its best, out-blocking and out-digging Purdue, but the Boilermakers’ two-setter offense spread the ball around the court, preventing Wack from hitting 10 digs.Nevertheless, Wack was anything but upset.”It was something that I was very proud of, and it was nice to have,” Wack said. “I would be upset about it ending if it was on a match that we lost, but we won.”Wack finished with just eight digs while Amanda Berkely and Jackie Simpson posted 12 and 10, respectively.”Today was an all-around game by Berkley and Jackie, and that was nice,” Wack said. “Everybody played hard, and everyone picked up their defense, and it just wasn’t my night.”The closest anyone’s come to Wack’s streak was Griselle Lopez-Pereira of Virginia Commonwealth, who Wack passed early last year, with 63 consecutive matches, and UW head coach Pete Waite believes it is one that will stand for a long time.”That was a fantastic record she set, and it’s going to be a long time before somebody beats that,” Waite said.Wack had 18 digs Sunday in Wisconsin’s win over Indiana.Carlini sidelined, DuPont steps upFor the third straight game, senior floor captain and outside hitter Maria Carlini sat out with a foot injury.Carlini suffered the injury three weeks ago at Illinois, but continued to play until leaving the Ohio State match last weekend after the second game and sitting out every game thereafter.Her timetable for return remains an unknown, though Carlini is itching to return as soon as possible.”I’m not sure [how long she’ll be out],” Waite said. “If you ask Maria, she’ll be back next match, but you could’ve said that three matches ago and she’d say that every time.”Even though Megan Mills took Carlini’s place in the starting line-up, it was freshman outside hitter Caity DuPont who replaced her spot in the rotation.DuPont, in her first matches at the Field House, got some valuable experience under her belt and made an impact in both Badger victories, recording nine kills Friday and eight Sunday.”I’m really happy I’m getting this opportunity, although we really want Maria to come back,” DuPont said. “I am just glad to be in there helping the team out.”While Carlini’s injury is definitely unfortunate for Wisconsin, Waite is happy to see DuPont and other players off the bench step up in her place.”We’re still hoping [Carlini will] come back and give us some good play, but this is great,” he said. “This improves the depth of our team and they got really tight out there as a team and stood tough together.”It’s making us deeper and better right there by getting Caity in there and getting her experience.”Field House CrowdHomecoming weekend was a big one for UW athletics, and it all wrapped up Sunday with a Badgers volleyball match against Indiana.Wisconsin made a concerted effort to make Sunday’s crowd a big one: mission accomplished.With several promotions to bring fans in, the Field House attendance hit 7,064, the 14th-largest volleyball crowd at the Field House.”I thought it was a great crowd out there,” Waite said. “A lot of high school teams and different groups … came in to watch, and our players were really excited to play in front of them.”The crowd level certainly gave the Badgers a boost, evident by the quick lead they jumped out to.Wisconsin held Indiana to nine points in the first game, tying the fewest points given up in rally scoring in school history.
