Totepool’s Scoop6 bet was landed last weekend with eight lucky tickets predicting the six race winners and earning £1.3 million apiece.
122 tickets were still live on the final leg at 3.45 race at Haydock Park, with only one horse, the outsider Grevillea, not covered. The race was won by the Alan King-trained Chatez, ridden by Ferguson Sweeney.
The successful punters have the chance to increase their winnings as they are all in contention for next Saturday’s bonus fund, which carries a prize of £5.5 million. The eight ticket winners will be tasked to nominate the winner of a chosen race on Saturday in order to pick up the bonus.
