Paddy Power have suspended betting on a huge 2155/1 accumulator which backs four horses to win on Day One of Cheltenham Festival after over 32,000 punters backed the bet, leaving them to face a mega pay-out of £100million if it comes through.

The four-fold was tipped by Twitter tipster Andy Robson, who has predicted that Dysart Dynamo, Nassalam, Maries Rock and Risk Belle will win their respective races. 

Thousands of punters picked up on the tip and trusted Robson’s advice enough to put money on, but betting has now been halted on the accumulator by Paddy Power.

Dysart Dynamo is set to race in the Arkle Challenge Trophy at 14:10, and is currently third-favourite for the race at odds of 11/2 behind El Fabiolo (6/5) and Jonbon (7/4), according to Paddy Power

Nassalam will then take to the iconic racecourse 40 minutes later in the Festival Handicap Chase, and is joint-second favourite at 7/1 with The Goffer and Monbeg Genius. Corach Gambler (13/2) is the narrow favourite for the race.

Meanwhile, Maries Rock is Paddy Power’s joint-favourite at 5/2 alongside Honeysuckle for the Mares’ Hurdle at 16:10.

Risk Belle looks to be the outside tip on the popular accumulator, as it is only 11/1 with Paddy Power, leaving it as the current seventh-favourite for the Juvenile Hurdle at 16:50.

Yet it has left Paddy Power concerned enough to halt betting as they look to avoid a major payout on the opening day of the Cheltenham Festival. 

It turned out that Paddy Power need not have been too worried as Dysart Dynamo fell in the Arkle, with El Fabiolo storming to victory.
