With life thankfully beginning to begin to get back to normal on our islands, one thing that has stayed constant recently is that you crafty so-and-so keep finding ways to give our odds makers a right, good kicking. That was the case again last weekend, as one of punters scored yet another fantastic accumulator at a big price and leaving us feeling the pain as a result.
Our winner – who hails from Dublin, Ireland – somehow correctly the predicted the outcome of the last four races of the day at Doncaster on Saturday evening to net a wonderful windfall of €7,346 off only a €2 stake. The bonkers bet came in at whopping odds of 3,672/1 to come in and, to make it even sweeter, the cash was claimed in just over an hour of a half. Let’s tell you how it all came in.
With all the action taking place at the South Yorkshire track, INVITE (13/2) was the opening selection on the betslip at 19:05. Marco Botti’s filly wasted no time in getting our victor off to the perfect start as she left Miss Mulligan in second in her wake by an impressive 10 lengths.
Attention quickly turned to Nigel Tinkler’s ISLA KAI in the 19:35 race, who set off at odds of 17/2. The gelding was given a brilliant ride by Rowan Scott to beat out Beau Jardine by 4 lengths in second, making all in the process. That result brought our punchy punt half-way home.
Next on the hitlist was the 20:05 contest, where our winner was hoping ROUNDHAY PARK (11/2) could bring up a double for Nigel Tinkler on the fab four-fold. Nails must have been bitten as the gelding found himself in arrears with the winning post in sight, but Faye McManoman in the saddle steered him to the front inside the final furlong and he held on to win by a length-and-quarter from a game Music Society.

Finally, with three wins in the bank, our cute customer was left with the highest odds chance on the punt to bring home bacon, as 16/1 chance GALIDERMES lined up for the 20:35. William Bethell’s gelding was made to work a bit by Dance King, but he grabbed the lead two furlongs from the finish and never looked back to score a two-and-three-quarter length victory.
That meant the loot was landed and €7,346 was winging its way to the Irish capital. So, all we can do is welcome yet another lucky winner to our Punting Hall Of Fame!
