An Irish director of Standard Chartered Bank in London is to ride a racehorse for charity at Cheltenham - even though he hasn't ridden for 25 years.

Brian Bunyan, 45, from Kildare town, is one of four Irish competitors in the 12-horse St Patrick's Derby at the Cheltenham Festival on March 14.

This year's riders were chosen from more than 100 applicants. The flat race, over one mile and five furlongs, is being run in aid of Cancer Research.
