Hurricane Fly & The One do battle in Champion Hurdle clash at Cheltenham as firm offers refunds on big race

The latest Cheltenham Festival tips, as Hurricane Fly & The New One do battle in the Champion Hurdle, as popular unit Ladbrokes announces it is refunding stakes should Hurricane Fly finish 1st or 2nd in the race.

Big-hitting bookmaker Ladbrokes has revealed that their big Cheltenham Festival money-back-special this year is all about Hurricane Fly – and we reckon it’s one of the best money-back deals of the 2014 Festival.

They are tempting Cheltenham punters in by offering to refund all losing bets as a free bet on the Champion Hurdle if the 2011 and 2013 winner Hurricane Fly either wins or finishes second in the flagship race on Tuesday.

This means any punter looking to take on the Irish hot-pot can do so in the knowledge that they will not lose any of their stakes, up to a £25, if Hurricane Fly, who beat Rock On Ruby last season, runs out the victor.

Bets can be placed through all channels – web, mobile, tablet – and the offer is available on bets placed on the Champion Hurdle from February 22 until the race on March 11.

There’s no need to worry about losing your stake should your selection not make the start as Ladbrokes has been offering Non Runner No Bet on the four Championship races for some time now. The offer applies to singles and the win part of each way singles placed on mobile and the maximum free bet is £25.

This offer will be music to the ears of any punters fancying the chances of any other horse, bar Hurricane Fly, in the market. The likes of The New One and Our Conor will no doubt be very strongly backed with Ladbrokes. Both have very strong chances of getting the better of the Irish raider anyway, but with this added insurance of getting your stake back if Hurricane Fly wins or comes second, it’s only going to increase the confidence behind the pair.

Hurricane Fly is now a 10-year-old and his limbs are starting to creak. Even though he hasn’t shown too many signs of ageing as yet this season, winning all three of his starts this season in Ireland, the opposition he faces at Cheltenham are of a different standard. Some are saying My Tent Or Yours and The New One are the best crop of young hurdlers to come through the ranks in the last 20 years.

He looks vulnerable this year and latching on to Ladbrokes offer is great way to make sure you turn a profit from the race.

This looks a risky money-back strategy by Ladbrokes and punters should take advantage.
