Pricewise helps Scoop6 punters net big bonus

THE two anonymous punters who landed last week's Totescoop6 with just a £64 stake took their winnings to over £360,000 after they cracked Saturday's bonus race with the help of Pricewise.

The £108,015 bonus fund was added to the £252,037 won last week and Betfred spokesman George Primarolo said: "Having taken a look the night before, the punters had an inkling for Ciceron and seeing the horse nominated by the world's greatest tipster only strengthened their resolve to opt for the Venetia Williams-trained six-year-old."

The two punters were present at Sandown to see Ciceron overhaul Havingotascoobydo after the final hurdle. Ciceron, tipped by Tom Segal at 16-1, was the subject of major support, returning at 6-1.

However, the win fund of the bet was not won after the victory of Star Of Angels in the fifth leg at Wincanton knocked out the remaining 108 tickets. There will be a rollover of £71,745 in the win fund next weekend.

A total of £204,988 was bet into Saturday's pool and there were 781 winners of the place fund, each of whom picks up £52.40.
