Peter Donnolleys superstar is best known for stringing together 13 consecutive wins at Winnellie Park from September 10, 2011 through to March 9, 2012. For the first time since that stellar run, Sugar Mouth posted back-to-back victories when she saluted in the Bas Herlihy Mem orial Dash (312m) seven days ago. Her bid for a hat-trick comes in the Winnellie Hotel Open Dash (312m), a race that contains the two chasers who finished immediately behind her last Friday night in Jens Love and Pottsee. Jens Love, the 2011 Darwin greyhound of the year, has built a wonderful record in the Top End, especially at this trip where he has won 12 of 21 starts. Pottsee, an emerging talent for trainer Joel Vansleve, franked his previous run of good form in the lower grades with an eyecatching third in his first try against open company. Jens Love has drawn box two and will be inside Sugar Mouth (4) and Pottsee (8). In all, six races will be run and won at headquarters, with the first at 7.39pm and the last at 9.43pm. Coverage is available through Radio TAB 1242am. GREGOR MACTAGGART Olympic can expect improved Aces SOCCER DARWIN Olympic and Mindil Aces open proceedings in the DFL mens Premier League tonight. They are at opposite ends of the table, but the Reds can expect an improved Mindil on the one they trounced 5-1 earlier in the season. Olympic has the ability to score through the combined talents of Mitch Amidy and Michael Tsounias, but Mindil has made significant defensive progress. Tomorrows opener between top-of-the-table Casuarina and cellar dweller Palmerston looks a mismatch, while the match between Uni Azzurri and Port Darwin at the Italian Club will be a test for the Sky Blues, coming up against the best performed de fensive unit in the competition. Port is balanced offensively and defensively, but their midfield is rarely challenged and is the real strength, because they cut-off supply and help out the defenders, Uni coach Robbie DArrigo said. We will aim to pressure them in the middle, where Paddy Bradley has been exceptional for us this year. Armstrong denies charges Fresh doping charges have been brought against cyclist Lance Armstrong by the US Anti-Doping Agency Picture: AP PHOTO CYCLING SEVEN-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong confirmed he was facing new doping allegations brought by the US Anti-Doping Agency which could result in the stripping of his titles. Armstrong who has vehemently denied using performance-enhancing drugs during his career said the charges were baseless and stem from discredited past allegations. I have been notified that USADA ... intends to again dredge up discredited allegations dating back more than 16 years to prevent me from competing as a triathlete and try and strip me of the seven Tour de France victories I earned, Armstrong said in a statement. He slammed the agency as an organisation largely funded by taxpayer dollars but governed only by selfwritten rules. According to reports, USADA had written to Armstrong saying blood samples taken from him in 2009 and 2010 when he came out of retirement were fully consistent with blood manipulation including EPO use and/or blood transfusions. Armstrong finished third in the Tour de France in 2009 and 23rd in 2010. Since retiring again from cycling last year, Armstrong has taken up triathlon competition, but USADAs action bans him from competing. USADA chief executive Travis Tygart issued a statement confirming that written notice of allegations of anti-doping rule violations was sent yesterday to him (Armstrong) and to five additional individuals all formerly associated with the United States Postal Service professional cycling team. These individuals include three team doctors and two team officials, he said. This formal notice letter is the first step in the multi-step legal process for alleged sport anti-doping rule violations. Armstrong must answer the charges by June 22.
