January 26th Scoop6 Win Fund stays untouchedJanuary 28th, 2013 / lee
How was the action looking over the weekend in the exciting Scoop6 horse racing market? Well, not good for anyone looking to land share of the Win Fund which stood at £73,509 on Saturday, January 26th. All of the tickets in the running for the Win Fund this week were abolished after the fourth race of the sixth, leaving only interested parties in the Place Fund. It was the defeat of favourite Ted Veale in the 3:20 at Leopardstown which wiped out the remaining eight tickets in the Win Fund, but the real damage was done in the third race of the day, the 2:45 at Leopardstown.
With punters spread well across the field, Hidden Cyclone went as favourite, taking 508 Win Fund tickets on him. He didn’t get close though as Farrells Fancy took the tape with just eight tickets riding on him. The second race of the six though was perhaps the most exciting, being the 2:25 at Cheltenham. Imperial Commander took a heavy backing along with Grands Crus, the favourite. However, Cape Tribulation it was who came through the field to beat Imperial Commander into second. It was a narrow victory for Cape Tribulation, but he looks a really refreshed charge this year. Course specialist Midnight Chase looked rusty and Grands Crus looked well beaten, and will now take a rest ahead of Cheltenham following his pretty poor run.
So while no-one claimed the Win Fund on the Scoop6 this week, there were 138 place winners, who each picked up just under £200 each. Not a bad return again from a small stake. So there will once again be a rollover of funds carrying forward to next week, as well as the Scoop6 Bonus Fund which remained untouched. The next Scoop6 runs on February 2nd, 2013.
A £2 stake is all it will take for you to have a crack at the Scoop6 big prizes. The Tote will announce the six races which make up the Scoop6 day on a Saturday and punters can use their horse racing knowledge and experience to try and pick out the six winners of each of the featured races.
