Cheltenham Festival: Paddy Power’s now Non Runner Money Back on ALL races

Keep calm and carry on ... for the greatest show on Turf!

You know we’re getting close to the Cheltenham Festival when Paddy fires up the Non Runner Money Back machine – and in a cloud of smoke and the clanking of gears the moment has now arrived!

So what does it all mean?

You can now back any of your Cheltenham 2023 fancies in ALL 28 races safe in the knowledge that if they don’t run in that race for whatever reason – you’ll get your stake refunded on any race they miss over their final target. The offer applies from 12pm 3rd February 2023. No rule 4 will apply until after the final declarations that are 48 hours before race time.

So let’s say you fancy Appreciate It ahead of his run at Leopardstown on Saturday. You’re worried he’ll go for the Turners Novices Chase rather than the Arkle Chase and you’ll do some of your dough if you bet on him now for both races.

Well worry not, my friend. If he misses one engagement for the other you’ll now get your stake back on the race he doesn’t run in.

It’s very, very simple.

Honeysuckle lines up in the Irish Champion Hurdle on Sunday and depending on how she gets on, connections could decide on a crack at a third Cheltenham Champion Hurdle win. However, your brain space is also telling you that the Mares’ Hurdle is a possibility if things don’t go to plan.

Fear not. Paddy will just refund your stake on the race she misses. Fact!


There’s never been a better time to drill down into Cheltenham with the Dublin Racing Festival coming under orders this weekend and the results are likely to cause more market movements than a Tory Budget.

And if you’re looking to take advantage of Paddy’s generosity but don’t know where to start, tipping guru Paul Jacobs and our top trader Frank Hickey have both gazed into their crystal balls to deliver their best early Cheltenham punts.

The Non Runner Money Back offer is just is one of a number of juicy and exciting offers Paddy’s putting up to help you get the most out of Cheltenham and racing in general.

We’ll be continuing our FREE-TO-PLAY Pick 5 competition on Saturday with a rollover £/€50k jackpot – and a bonus £/€25k game this Sunday – for day two of the Dublin Racing Festival.


Our weekly From The Horse’s Mouth podcasts have gone into overdrive as we count down the weeks to the greatest show on turf that is now also available on our very own brand spanking new Paddy Power Racing YouTube channel, which features everything from Quiz shows to Racing rewinds and anything else we can drag Ruby Walsh into.

With a top stable of premium daily and weekend pundits you can read Ruby Walsh, Matt Chapman, Mick Fitzgerald, Rory Delargy, Paul Jacobs, Tipman and Timeform on Paddy Power News as we talk all things Turf throughout the year.

Can’t say fairer than that now can we?
