You’ve heard it all by now. Your best mate, your ma’s new boyfriend. Your nan.

Everyone – and we mean everyone – is an expert on the Cheltenham Festival.
But Paddy’s not buying it. No sir. Been there, done that, worn the pants.

So instead of letting you miss out on all the fun when these ‘tips’ run like hairy goats, Paddy’s making you an offer.

And not just any offer. An offer you can’t refuse, my friend.

To get your Cheltenham week off to an absolute worldy, Paddy’s going MONEY BACK AS A FREE BET ON ALL 2nd, 3rd and 4th-placed finishers on the opening day of the four-day Festival for online customers.

Think you don’t need it? Think again.

The year is 2019 and A Plus Tard has gone to post as the 5/1 fav for the penultimate race on the opening day. He jumps the second last fence and quickly scampers 16 lengths clear for a facile victory to leave punters in clover and Paddy licking his wounds.

Anyone who backed Tower Bridge, Ben Dundee or The Russian Doyen to win, knew they were on a loser once A Plus Tard kicked clear. And they would have been – if it wasn’t for Paddy’s MONEY BACK AS A FREE BET ON ALL 2nd, 3rd and 4th-placed finishers offer, that let them roll the dice again.

Ah, we hear you cry. This is just to get us to back against the favourite. They always win the big races, right? Eh, no.

Fakir D’oudairies (4th in the Supreme Novices Hurdle) and Laurina (4th in the Champion Hurdle) were just two of the high-profile market leaders that choked on day one last year, but Paddy Power’s online customers still got their stake up to €10 returned as they finished 2nd, 3rd or 4th to the winner.

And this year if your selection fades on the climb up Cleeve Hill, gets mullered at the last before the frantic dash to the line, or flies home when it looks like all hope is gone, you’re still getting paid with our MONEY BACK AS A FREE BET ON ALL 2nd, 3rd and 4th-placed finishers.
