One Paddy Power customer found themselves more than €2,000 richer over the weekend after a perfect cash-out call midway through Saturday’s racing action.
The Co. Tipperary punter must have been feeling lucky when they put on a €2 sixfold including contests from Kelso, Navan, Newbury and Meydan.
And our brave bettor would have been on cloud nine when their first three selections all came in, sparking dreams of a monster payout.
But head ruled heart as the clever customer decided to cut and run, cashing out for a welcome boost of €2,055 before the final three legs of the accumulator went down.

Things got off to a stunning start when 12/1 shot Secret Ambition claimed the opening race on Saturday’s card at Meydan – the Godlophin Mile – by 6l ahead of Golden Goal and Avant Garde.
Skipping over the Dubai Gold Cup, which was won by Subjectivist at 13/2, the next leg of our acca saw Ryan Moore Extravagant Kid and land the Al Quoz Sprint by half a length at huge odds of 16/1.

It was off to Scotland next for a handicap hurdle at Kelso, and our punter was on fire with an 18/1 winner in the form of Agrapart as the selection saw off favourite Doyen Breed by a head.
With results like that, it would have been understandable to let the acca roll on – particularly with each leg at shorter prices than the ones preceding them.
But our pal decided to pull the plug while he was in the black and that call came not a moment too soon as 9/1 chance Valadom could only manage second behind Tinkers Hill Tommy in the Conditional Jockeys’ Veterans’ Handicap Chase at Newbury.
That was followed by another second for Sassified at 11/2 in Navan before Mogul disappointed in the final leg of the sixfold by coming home seventh in the Longines Dubai Sheema Classic.
But our punter will have not minded those final results one bit and are counting their lucky stars – and good judgement – that they cashed out for a maximum profit.
All that’s left to say is well done, enjoy the winnings and welcome to Paddy’s Punting Hall of Fame!
