You know the score. You fancy two runners in the one race. You back one and the other finishes second…. and you’ve done your dosh.
It’s the age old problem when punting the gee gees. But not any more my friend.
With the final Classic of the Flat season down for decision at Doncaster on Saturday – Paddy’s come up with a way to stop you screaming at your also-ran louder than Paul Merson as the final scores roll in.
His Money Back Special on the second or third in the St Leger means that if you’re selection is second or third in this race – you’ll get the win single part of your single and each-way bet back as a free bet. (see terms & conditions).
With ante-post favourite Kingston Hill getting the green light from trainer Roger Varian 14 runners should face the starter at Doncaster.

But with some concerns that the ground in the home straight might be too quick – there’s plenty of options to nab some value in the rest of the field.
Newmarket trainer John Gosden’s has won the St Leger three times since 2007 and his Romsdal was just three lengths off Kingston Hill in the Epsom Derby as both finished in the places behind Australia.
Richard Hannon Jnr already won the 2,000 Guineas this year with Night of Thunder and saddles Windshear. The colt hasn’t been out of the first two in seven races and was just a neck behind Saturday’s rival Snow Sky in the Gordon Stakes at Goodwood.
Mark Johnston’s Hartnell was sixth that day – 12 lengths behind Windshear – but had previously beaten him at Newmarket and also won the Queen’s Vase over 2m at Royal Ascot.
Expect him to be running on when some of the others have cried enough.
