The leading bookmaker have announced an extremely generous promotion which will see Paddy Power refunding losing Champion Hurdle bets if Hurricane Fly wins the race.

The Irish horse is currently the 7/4 favourite to win the showcase race on Day One of the Cheltenham Festival, with the nine-year-old having won in 2011 before finishing third last year.

In the past few years, Paddy have generally targeted the favourite for the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle although it appears the Irish bookmaker are reluctant to go after My Tent Or Yours. They are instead concentrating on a horse that is fancied to win the Champion Hurdle for a second time.

The Offer
Paddy Power will refund losing 2013 Champion Hurdle bets up to £100 if Hurricane Fly wins the race.

In 2012, Paddy ran with a similar offer for the Arkle, with Sprinter Sacre costing the bookmaker several million pounds after the Nicky Henderson machine won the race doing handstands.

Many customers will be taking advantage of this Hurricane Fly offer which means that punters are likely to be placing bets on Zarkandar and Rock On Ruby to claim victory.

Paul Nicholls trains Zarkandar and fancies the chances of a horse that disappointed in the race twelve months ago, although Rock On Ruby was the worthy winner that day and perhaps the Harry Fry-trained horse is the one to be with this time around.

The Odds
Hurricane Fly 7/4
Zarkandar 9/2
Rock On Ruby 5/1
Grandouet 6/1
Binocular 10/1
Cinders and Ashes 12/1
