Big day for Irish at Cheltenham

It’s the Cheltenham Festival, and the first big race, the Champion Hurdle, has eight Irish horses in a field of fifteen. Reuters reports the police are on the look out for IRA money. Paddy Power has the odds for all today’s races! Mmm. Maybe selling a decent tip or two might help kick start a fund raising drive for Slugger!!

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
