Newbury Placepot pays out over £30k after day of shocks


On Saturday at Newbury, only three units out of 1,109 were successful in the Tote Placepot, resulting in a huge payout of £30,013 for a £1 stake. Despite no favourites winning, two short-priced favourites were unplaced, leaving just 349 units after the second leg and only 44 units remaining after the third leg, which was won by Isaac Shelby at odds of 15-2.

The BetGoodwin Spring Cup Handicap saw favourites perform to market expectations, but only 3.57 units remained after the 1m maiden when three outsiders filled the top three spots at odds of 12-1, 4-1 and 13-2.

The final dividend was paid out to just 3.06 units, with Tote+ customers receiving £31,514. The total pool size was £91,629.74.

Jamie Hart, spokesperson for Tote, said: “The whole idea of guaranteeing these big placepot pools was to generate the opportunity for placepot punters to win massive payouts. After two five-digit paydays at Cheltenham it’s great to see the pattern continuing into the Flat season with this £30,013 placepot at Newbury.”

At Ayr’s Scottish Grand National fixture, 2,587 units won the Placepot, with a payout of £102.99 for a £1 stake.
