We don’t give up places in our Punting Hall of Fame easily here in Power Tower, but one Irish punter kicked the bloody doors down on Sunday thanks to an astounding accumulator win.
With British racing back less than a week our victor timed his run perfectly and landed a four-legged each-way acca to defy odds 2,798/1.
The crafty customer’s selections scored at Lingfield, Haydock and Newmarket in the space of about 50 minutes to make it a Super Sunday.
The Mick Cannon-trained Walkonboy got things off to winning start on our punter’s betslip by just seeing off Kips in the 13:30 at Haydock.
Attention quickly turned to the 13:40 at Lingfield, and Josephine Gordon steered Summer House to victory to make it two wins from two by heading Duck And Vanish in the final stride of the race.
Next on the hit-list was Newmarket 10 minutes later, where Andrew Blading’s Dashing Willoughby made all under the stewardship of Oisin Murphy to score a third success on the bounce and leave our victor’s nerves jangling going into the final leg of his acca.
To secure the dough, victory for the aptly-named Punting in the 14:15 at Haydock was a must and the Richard Hughes filly duly did the business. Pawpaw didn’t make it easy for her, but our punter was in dreamland when she crossed the line to land his bumper bet.
Having placed a 50c each-way acca at the start of proceedings, our winner picked up €2,799 from a €1 stake. Not bad for a Sunday, eh?
Congratulations pal and welcome to the Punting Hall of Fame!
