While Jason Deamer wore a punch after training Our Renaissance to beat a Group One winner first-up, he is hoping its the horse who will be in for the fight at Rosehill.The six-year-old mare is set to hit the road from Newcastle to run in a benchmark handicap over 1100 metres on Saturday.Our Renaissance returned from a spell in fine form at Muswellbrook on November 25, winning the $50,000 Skellatar Sprint and covering 1000m in 56.27 seconds.JK Racings James Lovegrove, who bought Our Renaissance online as a tried horse before syndicating her, could hardly contain himself after the race.He got a bit too excited, Deamer said.I was just about to go up behind him and pat him on the back and say well done and hes thrown his hands in the air and clocked me under the chin.Better getting one that way than one for losing.Our Renaissance held off Dal Cielo, who won a Group One race in New Zealand and was placed in last years Group Two Sandown Guineas.Dal Cielo flashed home late to finish second carrying four kilograms more than Our Renaissance.That weight discrepancy will be erased when they meet again on Saturday with the pair now sharing the same handicap rating.It was Dal Cielos first run for trainer Kris Lees after being transferred from New Zealand trainers Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman.Lees also has Upscale nominated for Saturdays race along with Awasita and Zetful who are both entered for Friday nights Canterbury meeting.The Gary Nickson-trained dual Group placegetter Voilier is another among the 21 nominations for the race.Deamer said Our Renaissance had recovered well from her first-up victory and was working well in training.Obviously it was a bit easier grade than this on Saturday but shes improved with the run and she couldnt have done anything more, Deamer said.The time also impressed Deamer and he is hoping for a similarly firm surface at Rosehill to aid her chances.While rain is forecast around Sydney early in the week, after Tuesday no significant falls are expected.Our Renaissance scored her first metropolitan win at Rosehill in May and Deamer believes she is well placed in off-season racing.If everything goes her way shell be competitive, he said.The way she came back the other day she might have even improved just that little bit from last time in.Adidas Stan Smith Australia Sale .

The Caps will face former defender Alain Rochat and midfielder John Thorrington as they visit D.C. United in Washington. Of the two, Rochat is expected to play a more prominent role as he tries to curb Vancouvers potent offence after being traded unexpectedly for a pair of draft picks in early June. "(Rochat) brought the same thing here that he brings to D.C. -- obviously his presence as a veteran and his ability to get forward and his ability to defend," said Vancouver goalkeeper Brad Knighton. "Im sure they enjoy having him, and itll be good to see him." Thorrington, a steady performer who has battled injuries, made 35 appearances for Vancouver between 2011 and 2012 before being waived in the off-season. The Whitecaps (6-5-4) are looking to win their third straight game and fifth in the past seven. United is in last place overall with a 2-11-3 mark, but is coming off a win over San Jose. Vancouver has scored 11 goals in its past four games, but the Whitecaps need to shore up their goals-against record. They have allowed 24 goals -- the fourth-highest total in the league. "Were obviously scoring goals at a premium right now, which is great for us," said Knighton. "We just need to be sound defensively, and the wins will keep coming." Currently fifth in the Western Conference, the Whitecaps have a chance to move ahead of four-place Los Angeles, pending the Galaxys result Saturday against the San Jose Earthquakes. Vancouver coach Martin Rennie said his charges have to balance their offensive prowess with better defence as they attempt to move up the table. While winning their last two games against New England and Chivas USA, the Whitecaps had to overcome deficits. "Weve been scoring a lot of goals," said Rennie. "So we need to make sure that we keep attacking teams and making sure that were creating chances. "I think that, as a team, we generally need to defend better, although against Chivas, they didnt really have too many chances. We limited their opportunities. So we need to do that well in the next game." The Whitecaps are surging after struggling early in the season. Rennie said another victory will do a lot for the teams morale as the organizatiion, in its third MLS season, strives to become one of the leagues top clubs.dddddddddddd "Confidence is hard to build, and were still working hard to build that," said Rennie. "As a team in general, were still a new team trying to create a positive culture, and I think these little steps do make a difference. Every time you get a win and go on a winning run and show good form, that always builds confidence. "Its such a tight league, Major League Soccer, so if we can go on a run and keep doing well, then we can move up the league fairly quickly." The Whitecaps will return to action following a 10-day break that has allowed some injured players to mend. Midfielder Gershon Koffie (thigh) and Brad Rusin (calf) are healthy again after they both missed the past four games. "Im looking forward to getting out there, scoring goals and, hopefully, getting a clean sheet," said Rusin, who is slated to play a holding midfield role instead of his usual central defender spot. Johnny Leveron and Carlyle Mitchell will continue in the centre back spots, while Nigel Reo-Coker, usually a midfielder, is slated to shift to right fullback, a position that he has played occasionally in the English Premier League and in the first leg of the Amway Canadian Championship against Montreal this season. He is making the move because veteran Young-Pyo Lee, 36, is being rested back in Vancouver. The game is the first of two straight on the road for the Whitecaps, who conclude their trip Wednesday in Kansas City. Notes: Whitecaps midfielder Russell Teibert of Niagara Falls, Ont., is slated to join Canadas entry in the upcoming Gold Cup after the game. Vancouvers fourth goalkeeper, Simon Thomas of Victoria, has also been called up to the national squad. ... Mitchell will also leave the Caps after the game to play for Trinidad & Tobago in the same tournament. ... Lee appears unlikely to join the Caps in Kansas City. He negotiated breaks from Eastern trips when he agreed to come back for what is expected to be his final season before retirement. ... Vancouver central defender Andy OBrien remains out with a hamstring injury. ... D.C. and the Whitecaps are 1-1-1 against each other in three MLS meetings. ... Kyle Porter, a former Whitecaps residency player who left the team in 2010, will also dress for the hosts. ' ' '
