Tuesday wins on board Douvan, Un de Sceaux and Faugheen took Ruby Walsh’s Cheltenham Festival winners to an incredible 44.
But when Annie Power took a tumble in the Mares’ Hurdle many, many punters’ dreams of an opening day four-timer on the Willie Mullins favourites bit the dust too. It’d already been an expensive one for Paddy.
However, the sight of Annie P trying to jump a shadow, combined with a loose grasp on the fundamentals of business, convinced the boss to take some action.

Paddy Power is refunding all straight four-fold accumulator bets placed on the following four horses in light of Annie Power falling at the last hurdle in the Mares’ Hurdle race.
- Douvan (1:30 Cheltenham)
- Un de Sceaux (2:05 Cheltenham)
- Faugheen (3:20 Cheltenham)
- Annie Power (4:00 Cheltenham)
Paddy Power said: “Even though we suffered the agony of the first three winning, all highly costly results in their own right, and gave money back as a free bet on all losers behind Douvan and Un De Sceaux, we just couldn’t let punters who bravely backed the quartet go home unrewarded. We all thought Annie was home and hosed at the last and even we were cheering a piece of racing history before unlucky Annie made the costliest mistake for backers ever.”
