The final field has been declared for Friday’s Paddy Power Irish Cambridgeshire – and we don’t just mean the equine kind.
After a huge entry to Paddy’s Sweepstake Competition over the past couple of days, we’ve matched the 20 runners in Friday’s feature contest at the Curragh (3.40pm) to the 20 winning entries for the chance to win a cool €/£5000 if the horse they are matched with gallops home in front.
And even if the 19 also rans don’t quite get their head in front, there’s still the consolation prize of a €/£50 free bet to kick-start the weekend. Huzzah!
Kate Harrington swung by to give PP News the lowdown on the stables two runners in Friday’s big race while PPTV racing supremo James Shortt has the stats, facts and all-round horsey speak to accompany Friday’s fiesta.
All we need to do now is see which of the 20 finalists below will be €/£5000 richer as the clock strikes 3.42pm approximately on Friday.
And if you’re wondering why the 5.10pm at the Curragh is called the ‘I’d Love a Pint But I’m Not Getting Married’, we let our Instagram followers suggest names for the race, and then vote on the best one.
So that was suggested by Instagram follower Morgan Ryan, who was also given a €50 free bet for his troubles. The name was inspired by a tweet by comedian Darren Conway after the new COVID restrictions were announced.
Looking forward to hearing commentator Jerry Hannon saying that one.
