2020 has been a complete write off, but 2021 could be about to get off to a stormer.

PADDY POWER GET RISK FREE £20 BET*


That’s because Paddy Power have launched a bumper sweepstake called the Millionaire Chase that will make one lucky entrant – you guessed it – a millionaire on New Year’s Day.

The winning horse’s backer in the New Year’s Day race will take home the bumper top prize of £1m, but all other entrants will all pocket £10,000 just for getting into the final – not a bad way to confine 2020 to the past!

The horses may be taking on the hurdles, but there’s no giant leaps required to enter the competition.

SEVEN THINGS YOU COULD BUY WITH PADDY POWER’S £1m

Everyone’s got a chance to win the top prize – and the next opportunity to get involved takes place this weekend.

To be in with a chance of landing the £1m you have to back the winning horse in the 3.17pm race at Ascot on Saturday.

Entry is simple. All you need to do is create an account or log in via Paddy’s app or at paddypower.com, then, OPT IN to the competition and back the winner in the qualifying race to the tune of at least £5.

RUBY WALSH: First Flow

It’s First Flow’s first time out after a break. On soft ground, right-handed everything is in place for him to run a big race here.

MATT CHAPMAN: First Flow

He’s hugely exciting and loves the mud. A natural front-runner, First Flow was always a decent hurdler and promises to be even better over fences.

MICK FITZGERALD: Capeland Capeland won this contest last year and Paul Nicholls has put some cheekpieces on to sharpen his jumping up and that can have the desired effect.
