Irish Grand National – Paddy Power Betting


Paddy Power also offers 5 places each-way on the Irish National

PUNTERS betting on Fairyhouse’s Easter Festival with any other bookmaker than Paddy Power might find themselves declared criminally insane as the world’s friendliest bookmaker has organised yet another amazingly generous money-back special running across all four days.

Backers will receive their money back on all single bets on fallers at Fairyhouse with Paddy Power. No, that isn’t a mistake or a clerical error – we repeat, punters will get their hard-earned back on any faller at Fairyhouse’s Easter Festival, which runs for four days from Saturday until Tuesday.

Paddy Power has decided to ‘go crazy’ again due to the popularity and success of the money back on all fallers special on Cheltenham Gold Cup day last Friday.

On Gold Cup day, Paddy Power customers who supported Magical Legend in the David Nicholson Mares Hurdle, Whispered Promises in the Coral Cup, and Dun An Doras and Christy Beamish in the Christie’s Foxhunter Chase all got their money back despite their selection falling.

Paddy Power spokesman Paddy Power said: “We all have first hand experience of watching our fancy take a tumble, there’s no worse feeling.  This is the ultimate safety net – did you ever hear the adage ‘a winner bar a fall’?”


“Many shrewd judges think just that about Cailin Alainn and Pomme Tiepy, that they are good things to make the frame in the Irish National and the only thing that can stop them is a fall so with Paddy Power is definitely the place to be backing them. Also the money back on fallers offer looks even better considering there are four novice and beginner chases on the first three days alone, those Fairyhouse fences are notoriously stiff!”

As if money back on all single bets on fallers at Fairyhouse isn’t enough, Paddy Power is providing another of its amazing concessions on the Powers Whiskey Irish Grand National on Monday. Any horse finishing in the first five places will be paid out on each-way wagers.

Tony Martin’s hotpot Royal County Star, who was available at odds as big as 8-1 when Paddy Power opened its market on the Irish National last Saturday, has again been backed and is now 4-1 favourite (from 5). Two other horses which have been supported since yesterday are Ballistraw and Sir Frederick, who are both now 16-1 (from 25).

Paddy Power: 4 Royal County Star, 5 Cailin Alainn, Pomme Tiepy, 12 Notre Pere, 14 Alexander Taipan, Beef Or Salmon, Preists Leap, 16 Ballycullen Boy, Ballistraw, Homer Wells, Newbay Prop, Sir Frederick, Well Tutored, 20 bar (5 places each-way)
