And the punters finish in real style to seal 3-1 victory over the might of our random puns on the homepage! Sian Maloney had a 60% strike rate with 3 or her 5 tips coming up trumps.
– Baby Run won the Foxhunters Chase
– Koln and Mochenglad … that other German team finished 1-1
– Kevin Braniff scored first
Although we’re not bothered actually adding up the total profit she made, it’s clearly vastly superior to the grand total of zero euros and zero cents we accumulated with no winning tips.
Congratulations Sian, a €50 Free Bet is winging it’s way towards your account in the near future.
Thanks to everyone who entered the competition, hopefully we’ll have more in the future.
It’s the final day of our massively popular and successful Pun v Punter Competition so we’re hoping for a classic to end the week. Not that we want to heap too much pressure on today’s contestant, Sian Maloney.
Sian says she’s a fan of Paddy Power's longest ever advertising sign on Cleeve Hill, but she reckons the best sign she’s ever seen was a burning bush that appeared in front of her when she was just seven years old. It’s not that she was getting a sign from God, she was just an unabashed pyromaniac in her younger years. We are of course telling fibs €“ she’s still an unabashed pyromaniac. That’s enough from our fictional biography for today.
The events we're looking for tips from Sian this Friday are:
– A top Runscorer bet for the Deccan Chargers v Kings XI Punjab IPL game
– The winner of the Foxhunters Chase at Cheltenham
– A 1st Goalscorer bet for the Portadown v Coleraine match
– A correct score bet in the FC Koln v Borussia Monchengladbach match
– A first tryscorer bet in the Crusaders v Catalans Super League match
The tips we’ve shoehorned into a pun are as follows (see the homepage for the full beauty of the puns):
– Yuvraj Singh to be top Punjab Runscorer
– Roulez Cool in the Foxhunters
– Rory Patterson 1st Goalscorer
– FC Koln to win 1-0
– Gareth Thomas 1st Tryscorer
Sian’s much-more likely to be successful tips:
– Adam Gilchrist to be Deccan Chargers Top Runscorer
– Baby Run in the Foxhunters
– Kevin Braniff of Portadown 1st Goalscorer
– FC Koln v Borussia Monchengladbach to finish 1-1
– Vince Mellars to be 1st Tryscorer
If Sian gets more profit to a £1 stake than us – and that’s entirely likely – she'll e-walk away with a £50 Free Bet.
