There’s not many things Paddy Power likes more than getting down to business early. In fact other than a box of Milk Tray and some classic David Bowie there’s nothing he enjoys more. That’s why, with nine weeks still remaining to Cheltenham, Paddy Power has gone and priced up every single race at the festival.
From the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle at 1.30pm on March 12th right through to the Grand Annual Chase at 5.15pm on March 15th, Paddy has all 26 races covered. You’re in good hands with Paddy Power.
Whether you want to back Simonsig in the Arkle, Hurricane Fly in the Champion Hurdle or Sprinter Sacre in the Queen Mother Chase, Paddy Power can give you a price. The early bird catches the worm, and like being the first man to approach a buffet at a wedding, Paddy Power has led the way once again.
Jezki has four wins from four over hurdles and is 4/1 to win the Supreme Novices Hurdle for example. Hurricane Fly was turned over at the festival last year but has won his three races since by a combined total of 21 lengths and is 7/2 to win the Champion Hurdle. Many punters were impressed with how Flemenstar stayed in the Lexus at Leopardstown and he’s a 5/1 shot for the Queen Mother Champion Chase.
We’re one of the first bookies to price up every single race at the Cheltenham Festival as we count down to four of the most exciting days in the jumps calendar.
Last year saw Paddy Power pay out more than a massive £5 million to punters on Sprinter Sacre alone after refunding £2.5 million in losing bets and paying out £2.7 million in winning bets!
You can expect even more madness at the Festival this year with all the big names in racing making an appearance.
There’s just two months to go until Cheltenham so get the form books out and the ante-post bets ready to pick the value out of the early prices.
It’s got all the excitement of the countdown to Christmas without the stress of shopping, the crappy music or the extended family. What more could you ask for?
