Monkey is the break-out star of Paddy Power’s Show Us You Tips – the Cheltenham Festival betting game show. But he isn’t letting the new-found fame or the champagne magnums go to his head. His job is to out-smart our tipping team of Ruby Walsh, Barry Geraghty, Matt Chapman and John Parrot and he has picked out a cracker for day one.
Monkey is like Paul The Octopus although he’s not that into tipping football, he’s not German, and he can understand more than seven different languages. Apparently. He loves his racing and can often be found down the local bookies, pouring over a Racing Post and muttering about how he is the dominant species.
Now is his chance to prove it as he tries to get the Cheltenham Festival off to the perfect start. Watch the video below to get Monkey’s expert tip ahead of the Champion Hurdle.
Paddy Power will be watching the race from behind his desk and is one of the few people who won’t be cheering on Ruby Walsh and the favourite Hurricane Fly. If Hurricane Fly wins the Champion Hurdle Paddy Power will be giving Money-Back All Losers!
