How backing the winner in 2.25pm at Sandown on Saturday could land you £1MILLION

WITH 2020 nearing its end attention has already turned to 2021, and you could kick it off in style with Paddy Power's Millionaire Chase.

That’s because the bookmaker 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 consign 2020 to the past!

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

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 2.25pm Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown on Saturday.

Entry is simple. All you need to do is create an account or log in via Paddy's app or at, then, OPT IN to the competition and back the winner in the qualifying race If you nail all that then you're in the hat for the weekly draw which is streamed live on Paddy Power's social channels to reveal who has drawn the next horse in the Millionaire Chase sweepstake.

There’s been three weekly winners so far – and there’s now only three more qualifying races to go.

Not sure who to back? Well, top TV tipster Matt Chapman and the big man himself Mr Patrick Power have revealed their best bets for the race.


I expect Altior to win if he is anywhere near his best. That said, I'll tip ROUGE VIF to bang out and make all the running. Yes, of course Altior is the best horse in here and he'll probably score. But he's back after a break and Rouge Vif was super impressive at Cheltenham last time. If there is a young pretender he might be it and I just hope Gavin Sheehan is aggressive from the front on the Harry Whittington runner.


It's ALTIOR all the way for me. Last year, after getting beaten by Cyrname, you thought maybe that could be the end of Altior but its quite clear that that was too early in the season for the two of them to take each other on. Altior then missed Cheltenham, but apart from that he is different gravy. He's getting on, but he's one of the best we've ever seen so I think he will win here.
