Festival frolics enliven our daily routines; PICK OF THE DAY.

Live racing Channel 4, 12.25pm EVEN if you're not fortunate enough to have made it to Cheltenham, the festival is sure to have enriched your week, writes James Milton.

Top-class sporting action between nine and five on a weekday has a more positive effect on the nation's workforce than anything except doughnuts and strippers.

Yesterday, for example, office-workers could idle away the afternoon following AP McCoy's heroics at Cheltenham and England's Cricket World Cup game against the West Indies.

Bosses beware! Cheltenham week could be the catalyst for a nationwide rebellion against the banality of most people's jobs.

A mate of mine was given a verbal warning the other day for contravening health and safety regulations by carrying a cup of tea in the lift.

If you can't take risks during Cheltenham what's the point of being alive? I'm going to hang-glide into the office today with a keg of ale under one arm, a baby alligator under the other and a punting strategy that will see me end the day either in the Caymans or a straitjacket.
