Spinal Research to Benefit from a Dunguib Success
Paddy Power, who could be reeling from a multi-million pound payout if their 4-5 favourite Dunguib wins the Spinal Research Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, will also donate £1,000 to Spinal Research for every length that the ‘Irish banker’ wins the race by.
Trainer Philip Fenton, who today removed Dunguib from the Champion Hurdle but left him in the Spinal Research Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, said: “If Dunguib wins the Spinal Research Supreme Novices’ Hurdle by half a length, that will do us, but hopefully he can do better than that for Spinal Research.”
Leading owner Andy Stewart, whose son Paul broke his back in a snowboarding accident, is sponsoring the Spinal Research Supreme Novices’ Hurdle on behalf of Spinal Research.
He added: “As always Paddy Power are lengths ahead of other bookmakers in terms of their generosity and innovation as far as betting is concerned.”
“I won’t be having any of Paddy’s 500-1 that Gordon Brown is the next CEO of Ladbrokes, but their imagination in pricing up things like that is commendable.”
“They are also great supporters of charity and I have a runner in the Paddy Power Imperial Cup and am also on their Cheltenham Festival preview panel after racing at Sandown from which Spinal Research will again benefit.”
Paddy’s multi-million pound payout to punters in the event of a Dunguib victory will occur because not only will the bookie pay out on all winning bets, but he has also pledged to refund all losing win single bets on the Spinal Research Supreme Novices Hurdle if Dunguib wins!
Meanwhile Fenton added: “Dunguib is grand and all has gone very smoothly, no problems thankfully.”
“He’ll possibly jump a few flights, just three, on Thursday morning, before he heads off. We’ve taken him out of the Champion Hurdle and he goes for the Supreme. I’ve been very happy with him since Leopardstown, he’s jumped several hurdles since and he’s jumped them well. He’s been good and accurate.”
