Punter Pipped To €80,000 With 10 Cent Bet
An lucky online punter won big yesterday although they were just pipped at the post for an even bigger win after five out of their six selections won in their Lucky 63 at Punchestown.
The bet which cost €6.30 in total saw the punter select Edwulf (7/2) in the 12:25, Luckyinmilan (7/4) in the 1:00, Canaly (11/1) in the 1:35, Any Second Now (8/1) in the G2 Moscow Flyers Novice Hurdle, Definite Ruby (6/1) in the 3:20 and Fintara (7/1) in the 3:50.
Luckyinmilan was the one that let the punter down despite being well fancied and well backed, going off at an SP of 9/10. However he finished a disappointing tenth. There was good news for the customer however.
With the other five horses all obliging they turned their bet that cost €6.30 into a whopping €23,165.90.
The customer benefited from BoyleSports’ Best Odds Guaranteed online as Edwulf returned at 9/2, Canaly won at 16/1 whilst Definite Ruby returned at an SP of 20/1 despite being backed at 6/1 on Saturday morning. They also caught the early worm with BoyleSports’ early prices as Any Second Now returned at an SP of 6/1 and Fintara retuned at an SP of 3/1.
If all six selections had obliged the lucky punter would have netted just under €80,000, but it was a big ask to pick five winners from such a competitive card at Punchestown so hats off for their savvy picking.
