No-one likes to see a defending champion miss out on the chance to defend his title – well, except for the opposition who probably don’t mind.
Sadly Binocular has been withdrawn from the Champion Hurdle, but the good news for Paddy Power punters is that we’re refunding all bets on him. Regardless of whether you backed him nearly a year ago or you lumped on yesterday, you’ll be getting a full refund. Simple really.
Rather more complicated however will be picking out who actually wins this year’s Champion Hurdle.
