A victory for Hamish McGonangall in the fourth leg knocked out the ten remaining tickets to give a bumper Champions Day totescop6 for the second year in a row. With the rollover currently standing on £386,104 it is expected that the win fund will go over the £500,000 mark. With a further £196,674 in the bonus fund a single winner of both will pick up £3/4 million

Races this week are divided between Catterick, Cheltenham and Newmarket

Paul Petrie, totepool spokesman commented, "This time last year we declared the largest ever win fund dividend of £1,519,304 and although we won't reach those sums this weekend, a single winner could still pick up a life changing £500,000, all for just finding just six winners."

Totesport will be betting to 1% a runner on the four televised races at Newmarket tomorrow.

Spokesman Damian Walker said: "We'll be offering some fantastic value in the four televised Newmarket races by betting to just 1% a runner, plus we are paying out on five places in our sponsored race, the totesport Cesarewitch."


Rip Van Winkle puts his Classic credentials on the line in the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket tomorrow and will need to win well to maintain his status as 4-1 clear favourite for the 2,000 Guineas.

Walker added: "Rip Van Winkle will need to produce the goods in the Dewhurst to justify his 4-1 quote for the 2,000 Guineas.

"His ante-post supporters will be glad to see him back on the racetrack as he hasn't run for 86 days and has missed a number of tempting engagements."

Mooakada has been given a first show of 33-1 for next year's Oaks after making a winning debut at Newmarket today.

Walker added: "There will be worse 33-1 shots for next season's Classics and John Gosden said he would aim the filly at the Pretty Polly Stakes next spring, a typical springboard for the Oaks."
