What had looked a competitive bumper was blown apart by Anthony Honeyball’s four-year-old, who supplemented an earlier victory at Cheltenham on New Year’s Day with an 11-length romp through the Newbury mud.
At morning prices, even a 20p Rule 4 on the final selection left the punter with returns of £27,380.57p, enough for a tin of beans and £27,380 left to play with.
Here are details of each winning selection and the early prices taken:
- Talkischeap at 11/1
- Native River at 5/6
- Altior at 4/7
- Kalashnikov at 11/1
- Lovely Job at 11/2 (NR)
- Acey Milan at 7/1 (20p R4)
Sky Bet’s Michael Shinners said: “Finding five winners across the country in a single afternoon is tricky enough but do on a card like this one is a remarkable effort.
“In fact, given that this was clearly our customer’s day, they’re probably a little disappointed that Lovely Job didn’t run – had that horse won, returns would’ve been upwards of £175,000!”
