Paddy Power get into Cheltenham Festival Spirit with 8/1 on The New One for Champion Hurdle

Paddy Power announce the latest Cheltenham Festival tips, free bets and offers as they announced this morning that they are enhancing the price of The New One from 11/4 to a massive 8/1 to win the Champion Hurdle.

The horse, ridden by young Sam Twiston-Davies is one of the most backed horses of the festival, which has seen its price shorten to 11/4, as the 8/1 special enhancement has already seen plenty of interest from Cheltenham punters and fans alike.

So, The Cheltenham Festival is nearly upon us. The excitement is building. The nerves are a jangling. And most importantly of all bookmakers are offering exciting money-back specials.

The Festival itself runs from Tuesday March 11 to March 14 as a who’s who of the National Hunt racing world descend to Prestbury Park.

These specials bring with them a big chance for punters to make profit. One of the most lucrative offers on the market this year is provided Paddy Power, who have announced they will refund selections in the Supreme Novice Hurdle up to a maximum stake of £50, the first race of the Festival, should your horse finish 2nd, 3rd or 4th.

All bets only apply to win bets, so no point going each way with this one.

Paddy Power are claiming that this is their best ever offer for Cheltenham and it’s hard to argue considering the level of refunds that are likely to be triggered.

They have paid out on back-to-back Festivals following Sprinter Sacre’s demolition job in the Arkle and then Hurricane Fly delivering the goods in the 2013 Champion Hurdle, but before that the likes of Cue Card and Dunguib had seen the bookie go home happy after they were both stuffed in the Supreme.

New Paddy Power customers can claim a free bet when they register an account and so it’s a great time to be opening an account with a bookmaker that really bring the fun factor to Cheltenham.

Commenting on the special, Paddy Power said: “It’s fair to say that we’ve always led the charge with Cheltenham specials, but we wanted to freshen things up this year after a few ‘money back if [a certain horse] wins’ specials, and we’ve come up with our biggest offer yet.”

Where should the money be going in the opening race then?

With Paddy Power’s offer in mind, this looks a fantastic opportunity to go feet first into the chances of a horse that is all about consistency.

The way we are playing the race is to stick the £50 straight on the chances of David Pipe’s The Liquidator, who looks a huge price at 16/1 in the opening race.

Pipe’s charge looked a serious performer when hammering a good field at Cheltenham earlier in the season but went off the boil last time out at Kempton.

If bouncing back to form he looks a rock solid option in terms of Paddy Power’s offer. His form makes it hard to see him being out of the first four.

This looks a proper bet to nothing. If he does the business you win £750 and in strong likelihood he finishes in the top four, you get your stake back. Get on now.
