You know how it is. It’s Sunday. You’ve been grinding it out all week and can’t really muster up the energy to do much more on the day of rest.
That’s fair enough – but when you’re Bensoon – the heavily punted 2/1 joint-favourite at Gowran Park 3.15 who refused to race – you’re expected to shake a leg when you’re carrying punters hard-earned cash.
So if you backed the Barry Geraghty ridden favourite you’re about as happy with life as Newcastle manager Alan Pardew right about now.
Except that is if you’re a Paddy Power customer. Because if you backed Bensoon online, through mobile, over the phone or in the shops you are getting your money back, my friend.
Simply waddle up to the counter and say ‘That’s a loser – Money Back Please’ or wait for your account to be credited with your
losing stake from Bensoon to do with it what you will.
Think we’re joking? Read what happened to Paddy Power customers who backed Ektihaam at Royal Ascot on Saturday when the heavily-punted favourite slipped up on the bend.
Bensoon may have refused to race at Gowran Park but as Ektihaam and Gale Force Ten this week alone showed – Paddy will always give you a run for your money.
Wonder will the competition follow the leader?
