A big hitting syndicate and a £2 punter made it through to the last leg of the totescoop6 last week and with Binocular and Pierrot Lunaire jumping the last together the bet was sure to be one. It was the syndicate, on Binocular, who were celebrating picking up £375,183 with the chance to add a further £160,792 if they can find the winner of the 2.40 at Newbury.
Races this week are divided between Doncaster, Kempton and Newbury.
Paul Petrie, totepool spokesman commented, "It was great battle and at one point it looked like it was the £2 punter that would be celebrating. However, there was still the consolation of the £1843 place dividend which can't be knocked. The consolation for players on Saturday is that the syndicate only has one attempt at the bonus meaning, if they fail, there will be over £200,000 in the fund next week."
