You know how you’d wake up some mornings and have a look who’s sharing your bed and think maybe you shouldn’t had those four Jagerbombs in 30 seconds?
Well this isn’t one of those mornings. Today is the day you wake up with Kim Kardashian in the shower and Billie Faiers boiling the kettle as Paddy has not one – but two – knock-out offers for the Cheltenham Festival.
In a move that will have every other bookmaker choking on their cornflakes, Paddy has gone Money-Back all Losers if favourite Hurricane Fly wins the Champion Hurdle on March 12. And if that wasn’t enough all races at the Festival are now non-runner no bet with the world’s best bookie.
Now Paddy’s got simple tastes. A few beers, pizza, feet up in front of the TV watching sport normally leaves him happier than the judges of FHM’s sexiest Woman 2013.
But with just 12 days to go to Cheltenham he’s upped the ante on the competition by giving punters a stand-out Money-Back Special all Losers if Hurricane Fly wins the Champion Hurdle.
It’s very simple. If the 7/4 favourite Hurricane Fly wins the Cheltenham Champion Hurdle on March 12 Paddy will refund all losing single stakes on all the other runners in this race.
If you back Hurricane Fly and he wins – Happy Days! Form an orderly queue at the counter or on the internet and collect your dosh. If you back one of the other runners in the race and Hurricane Fly wins – don’t sweat it. Your losing single stake will be winging it’s way back to you.
Too good to be true? Last year Sprinter Sacre was the ‘banker’ of the meeting in the Arkle Chase and one the bookies wanted beaten.
But Paddy put his money where his mouth was – and admittedly where his brain should have been – and offered to refund all Losers if Sprinter Sacre won. You can guess the rest and Paddy Power’s £2.5m Sprinter Sacre payout had punters in clover for the rest of the week.
The same could happen this year as:
- Hurricane Fly won the Champion Hurdle in 2011 and was third in 2012 but is unbeaten in four Grade One starts since then.
- Hurricane Fly has won 15 times from 18 starts including 14 Grade One contests.
- Hurricane Fly is 7/4 favourite for the Champion Hurdle 2013 and Ruby Walsh rides him despite having a choice of mounts
And if that wasn’t enough, all ante-post bets at the Cheltenham Festival are now non-runner no bet with Paddy Power. (T&C’s apply)
The world’s best bookmaker has winning form with his Money-Back Specials and in January 2013 alone he refunded more than €900k to punters with his Money-Back Special on two races every Saturday that left customers across online, mobile and in the shops quids in.
Paddy mightn’t be on the panel when FHM choose the world’s sexiest woman but his Money-Back Special all Losers if Hurricane Fly wins the Champion Hurdle deserves an award.
