Quevega camp in charity drive

The owners of dual Cheltenham Festival heroine Quevega will pay out at 5/2, rather than at the current ante-post odds around even money, to a lucky charity lottery ticket holder if she completes a hat-trick in next month's David Nicholson Mares Hurdle.

The fortunate Hammer & Trowel Syndicate -- who also have another Cheltenham scorer Thousand Stars and J'y Vole in training with champion trainer Willie Mullins -- are taking this rare opportunity to raise funds for the Irish Wheelchair Association by offering raffle tickets priced at €5 or 10 for €40.

Their spokesman Sean Deane (087-2516176), who has guaranteed a minimum €2,000 payout for the winning ticket-holder, stresses they will happily top up that dividend to €7,000 if Quevega delivers once more in the Cotswolds next month.
