My Tent or Yours, Hurricane Fly and Dynaste Treble
My Tent or Yours is a banker on day one. Hurricane Fly is unbeatable at his best. Nothing will come close to Sprinter Sacre in the Queen Mother. The burgers in the canteen are made from panda meat.
With this many wild statements flying around it can only mean one thing – the Cheltenham Festival is less than two weeks away. The most exciting four days in a racing punters year are just 13 sleeps away.
Paddy Power has been on a Cheltenham buzz since the turn of the year and bar riding the Gold Cup winner himself wearing nothing but a pair of Lucky Pants, he doesn’t think this year’s Festival could get any better.
Paddy is dominating the betting market ahead of the Festival and is top-price on 13 of the 27 favourites. That is more than any other bookie around. That means more money in the pockets of punters and a few nervous races for Paddy in two weeks time.
Three gee-gees who have seen plenty of support in the run-up to the Festival are My Tent or Yours, Hurricane Fly and Dynaste. A £10 treble returns more than £245 with Paddy Power which is more than £40 more than you will get anywhere else.
The same treble with six of the other eight bookies returns less than £200 and you’d be more than £75 worse off if you placed that treble with Ladbrokes instead of Paddy. That’s the same as four large pepperoni pizza’s from Dominoes or about 24 pints of lager down in Weatherspoons!
My Tent or Yours is 7/4 to win the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, Hurricane Fly is 7/4 to win the Champion Hurdle and Dynaste is 5/4 to win the RSA Chase.
