Willie Mullins wins Cheltenham trophy after it eluded him so long


In these feverish, Brexit-contaminated times in Anglo-Irish relations, it was a moment of respect from English punters at the Cheltenham Festival for Willie Mullins, one of the greats of Irish horseracing. After four dramatic days of racing, the great Cheltenham contest ended a draw: Ireland 14-England 14. “That is just going to be a taste of what’s going to come if we end up in a post-Brexit situation. What else could you be?”Also among the punters was Robert Watt, secretary general of the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform. Asked about the odds on the EU and UK actually agreeing a deal on Brexit, he said: “Even money.”
