When Matt Chapman puts down the fake tan and tells you about a horse that will hack up at the Cheltenham Festival we take note. The At The Races presenter couldn’t be confident about Gevrey Chambertin as punters try to pull Paddy Power’s Lucky Pants down on Gold Cup day.
Paddy is a broken man after Hurricane Fly won the Champion Hurdle and gave all losing punters a whopping £2.2 million payout. Now Chapman is looking to pile on Paddy Power’s misery with the favourite in the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockey’s Handicap Hurdle.
The punters pal nailed Solwhit in the World Hurdle and Sizing Europe each-way in the Queen Mother. Rock On Ruby came a close second in what would have been a cracking treble for the punters pal.
