Paddy Power will be watching the Champion Hurdle between his fingers this year with his Money-Back All Losers offer if Hurricane Fly wins. At The Races journalist Matt Chapman isn’t doing anything to clam Paddy’s nerves with his claim that there is no reason you should oppose the Fly.
Plenty of punters will be cheering Ruby Walsh home on Hurricane Fly but Paddy won’t be one of them. Sprinter Sacre cost Paddy a small fortune last year and there’s every chance the boss will be emptying his pockets again next week.
Punters pal Matt Chapman thinks Paddy is barmy for opposing the 14-time Group One winner but he does have an each-way fancy himself who could shock the favourite on Tuesday.
‘Paddy can’t go completely bonkers because he already is absolutely bonkers. Hurricane Fly clearly can win the Champion Hurdle and you’d be a muppet to say he can’t win.’
‘Nothing will please me more than for Paddy to lose. Lets dent the Paddy Power profit and smash up Paddy. You here us Paddy, we’re taking your cash and going to enjoy every single minute of it.’
