Racing tipped the blacksmith by missing out on over £ 10,000, though his 2716-1 treble WATER

Author: | Posted in Sports No comments

A PUNTER was left behind after missing out on more than £ 10,000 – even though his 2716-1 treble won.

The player kept £ 5 each way on three horses that won, or at least ended up in the seats, last Friday.

The player needed the 18-1 horse to win to land a payout of £ 13,865.50 from just a tinner

He supported Kenyan Cowboy 10-1 at 12.35 in Chepstow, 12-1 Pink Legend at 14.05 at Ascot and 18-1 Brian Boranha at 15.05 at Catterick.

The point got off to the perfect start as Kenyan Cowboy, backing up 6-1 before the open, won by three-quarters of a length from 3-1 joint-favorite Investment Manager in a 2m3½f handicap hurdle.

Charlie Deutsch then struck out at Pink Legend in a 2m5f handicap hunt on Ascot.

The Venetia Williams-trained runner had been backed to 15-2 and scored by three lengths ahead of 16-5 favorite Guy.

At this stage things looked really good and the player’s payout option had increased to £ 736.62.

It’s a brilliant return from a ten – but would you have paid out or let the bet run?

The player decided to take the money and run was the better option as he settled his bet for £ 736.62.

But it turned out to be the mother of all bad calls when 18-1 Brian Boranha – who had not won in more than three years – finished gamely to win at Catterick.

Incredibly, the £ 5,881 connections won to win the competition were less than half of what the player would have gotten if they had let their bets run.

Luckily, they had covered themselves a little more by backing the horse up in singles, and still having raised more than £ 2,000.

But he would have celebrated a massive payout of £ 13,865.50 if he had left the bet alone.

Asked by a teammate if he had more tips, the player replied, “Yes, do not pay out.”

Payout can sometimes have glorious consequences.

Paul Dean won £ 250,000 by a fiver despite the last part of his election falling.

The Aries made a deal with Betfair at the Cheltenham Festival last March – and so on, when odds-on favorite Envoi Allen fell in Marsh Novices’ Chase.

Dean stood to win more than half a million quid from his five-fold effort – and would have had Envoi Allen justified favoritism.

But he wisely cashed in for half of that value – had he not then the whole bet would have gone down like a loser.

The player supported the grand prize winner but missed out on more than £ 10,000 which he would have received if he had let his original bet run
