We had to wait and wait and wait… but Paddy can finally start dishing out the giant novelty cheques to THIRTY, yes, THIRTY punters who each won an equal £/€3,333.33 stake in our £/€100,000 Pick 5 jackpot this Saturday!
Our bright bettors set off on the right foot by backing 11/4 joint favourite Solo ridden by Harry Cobden in the opening race this week, the 14:25 at Kempton. One down, four to go. Easy enough, right?

Just 35 minutes later at the same venue, the second fav Our Power just about did the business, beating the Frodon and Cap Du Nord to pocket connections the lion’s share of the £150,000 prize pot.
Our punters were really starting to dream when another French fancy, Rubaud, took the 15:40 at Kempton, beating Mullenbeg by 1 1/4 lengths.
All of a sudden a share of that juicy £/€100,000 jackpot started to become a reality when the old warhorse Kemboy pipped Vanillier at Fairyhouse by half a length and our winners were 80% of the way there.
So it was all eyes back to Kempton for the 16:10 race and the appropriately-named Mark Of Gold got the job done in style.
That result confirmed that we had a healthy number of winners in the week we also had our record number of entries with over 80,000 of you trying your luck.
Well done one and all, enjoy your haul!
If you missed out his week fear not as Paddy’s digging deep into his pockets once again next Saturday and we reset the prize pot with a rather handsome £/€25,000 up for grabs.
Make sure you get involved on Saturday March 4th as it might be you! That’s how the saying goes, right? Right?
