Barney Curley eat your heart out. Not even the legendary punter could pull off a scoop of this magnitude.
On a wet and windy February Monday, one iPhone punter scooped a whopping £38k off just a £1 each-way bet. He covered seven races from Wolverhampton and Southwell, and less than two hours after Maggie Pink romped home at 3.10pm, Chookie Royale sealed the deal.
Maggie Pink and Chookie Royale were both 7/4 but between them were some juicy winners with 12/1 shot Alaccordion obliging in the 3.20pm at Southwell and the aptly named Be Perfect at 15/2, 20 minutes later at Wolverhampton.
This bet was made even better by the fact that this lucky punter benefitted from Paddy’s guaranteed prices. If your horse’s starting price has drifted you get the bigger odds, but if it shortens you get your guaranteed price. That promise pocketed the punter more than £15k in this acca.
Not a bad way to kickstart February at all!
