You backed second-placed Long Run in the Guinness Gold Cup at Punchestown today you’re probably cursing your luck – and your empty wallet – right about now.
Your mates are quids in after backing the 2/1f Sir Des Champs and are down the pub giving it large.
But you’re a Paddy Power customer right? And what’s Paddy done? Only gone and refunded more than €100,000 to 7,500 customers as part of his 2nd to Sir Des Champs Money Back Special on day two of the five-day festival.
Punters who backed Long Run may have felt aggrieved but with our Money Back Special if 2nd to Sir Des Champs at least they got their hard-earned cash back on the runner-up.
And with Paddy paying 5 places in the handicap hurdle at Punchestown 6.05 on Thursday that’ll give you just enough time to cadge a few free beers off them tonight before getting stuck in again tomorrow.
Ante-post punters are already in clover after Paddy refunded bets on Certify for the English 1,000 Guineas after it was revealed that trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni was taking the Lance Armstrong approach to training Godolphin’s horses.
And with Paddy going Money Back if there’s a century break in the final frame of the World Snooker Championship matches and giving you a free bet if your golfer fails to make the cut in the Zurich Classic of New Orleans this weekend – things could get a hell of a lot worse for the world’s greatest bookmaker.
