SCOOP6 punters may find themselves cheering on unfamiliar names in the final leg of the bet this week with Ascot’s Shergar Cup fixture supplying four of the six races.
Two races from Haydock alongside the international jockeys’ challenge complete the bet with up to £250,000 predicted for any single winner who is also able to land the bonus pool next weekend.
The two reserves for each race at Ascot on Saturday will count as runners in the bet until officially taken out of the races, at which point any tickets containing them will switch to the favourite.
Andrew Griffiths, spokesman for Totepool, said: “The Scoop6 pools are building up nicely and a single winner could in line to pick up around £250,000 if successful in the bonus race next weekend.
“As per Totepool rules, reserves are considered runners until declared otherwise and any tickets on a non-runner will be transferred to the SP favourite.”
Racegoers at Ascot will also have the additional chance to back the winning Shergar Cup team on the Tote. The bet is only available with the Tote on course.
Scoop6 races: Leg 1: 2:00 Haydock, Leg 2: 2:20 Ascot, Leg 3: 2:55 Ascot, Leg 4: 3:10 Haydock, Leg 5: 3:30 Ascot, Leg 6: 4:05 Ascot
