Day two of the Cheltenham Festival may have belonged to the bookies but one Paddy Power online customer struck a hammer blow for the punters when he spun his initial investment of £18.40 into £155,715.69.

  • That’s right £18.40 worth of bets into £155,715.69 in winnings.

The clued-in punter landed the bounty after picking 6 out of 7 of the day’s winners in three separate bets – a Super Heinz and two 6-folds from 7.

The Dagenham-based punter got off to a flier when Yorkhill and Blaklion romped home but was stymied in the third when Politologue failed to win.

However, things picked up again when Sprinter Sacre landed the feature before Any Currency, Diego Du Charmil and Ballyandy rounded off an amazing day.

Paddy Power, a spokesperson for Paddy Power, said: “On a day when most punters struggled this can only be described as weapons grade punting and I have to take my hat off to him in spite the fact that he’s taken us to the cleaners.”

Super Heinz: A wager on seven selections and consisting of 120 separate bets: 21 doubles, 35 trebles, 35 fourfolds, 21 fivefolds, 7 sixfolds and a sevenfold accumulator. A minimum two selections must win to gain a return.
