Monster Scoop6 rolls over after just four legs

WITH two legs of the biggest ever Scoop6 still remaining the final punters in contention were eliminated from a potential £1.5 million payday after the victory in leg four for Streams Of Whiskey, an 18-1 shot with the bookies.

The Scoop6 reached a record-breaking total, with the win and bonus funds combining to pass £4 million for the first time in the bet's history.

The pool reached a total of £4,373,967, with £3,061,776 of that available to be won by punters. There is £1,528,248 to be won in the win fund, while £1,533,528 stands in the bonus pot should a successful ticket emerge.

But despite so much being bet into the pool a shock in the very first leg in the form of the Sue Smith-trained 16-1 shot No Planning decimated the bet and leaving only 12,851 tickets remaining.

And the field of potential winners was further reduced by 11-2 chance Georgian Bay's victory in leg two at Kempton, leaving just 1,948 units with four legs remaining. That number was reduced to 112 when Carlton Jack, who returned at 9-1, won the 17-runner handicap hurdle at Haydock.
