Scoop6 could swell to £200,000 after blank

THE ‘all-weather' Scoop6 eluded punters on Saturday and the single player chasing the bonus fund was also denied, leaving the Tote to suggest as much as £200,000 could be up for grabs next Saturday.

A total of £183,756 was staked on the Tote's pool bet and only one ticket remained on Only A Game going into the final leg at Lingfield, but Peopleton Brook's victory ensured a rollover of £64,314 in the win fund.

The bonus fund rolled over as well after the £2 punter who won last weekend's bet failed to pick the  winner of the bonus race after selecting Little Richard who could only finish third.

"The abandonment at  Sandown meant that Scoop6 punters were concentrating solely on the all-weather on Saturday but none of them could crack the bet which means that there is likely to be around £200,000 up for grabs next weekend," said Totepool spokesman George Primarolo.

There were 292 winners of the place fund, each of whom picks up £125.80.
