Life’s full of difficult choices.
Will I go to a fancy dress party as a suicide bomber? Should I rest my first team for an FA Cup game and risk getting thrashed before playing them in a semi-final and still getting hammered? Or is now the time to lump on Bobs Worth ante-post in the Cheltenham Gold Cup but risk losing my dosh if he doesn’t run?
Luckily, Paddy Power has come up with an answer to the last puzzle. IT DOESN’T MATTER.
That’s right, because from 4pm on Thursday, January 9, Paddy Power has gone non-runner no bet on the four feature races (Champion Hurdle, Champion Chase, World Hurdle and Gold Cup) on each day of the Cheltenham Festival 2014.
The so-called competition may still be deciding on what to do at declaration time in 10 weeks time. But you my friend, can sit back, relax and congratulate yourself on knowing that whatever way the cookie crumbles – you won’t be out of pocket.
And just in case you’re not sure where your other fancies may run – we’ve priced up all 27 races at the Cheltenham Festival 2014.
So, unlike Sam Allardyce, you’ll actually know what you’re up against.
