Betfred Punter narrowly misses on Lucky 31

A Betfred punter narrowly missed out on becoming one of the biggest winners in the firm's history after the last horse in his Lucky 31 got beat.

The man, from Dorset, would have become an instant millionaire if Southburgh had managed to land the last race at Stratford on Saturday night.

He placed a £5 each-way Lucky 31 with the Warrington-based firm, and his first four selections all went in at fancy odds.

He got the ball rolling with Harlov (10-1) in the 7.20 at Stratford, followed by The Sneakster (9-1) in the 7.35 at Cartmel, Down the Stretch (14-1) 7.50 Stratford, and No Panic (4-1) in the 8.05 at Cartmel.

If Southburgh had managed to do the business for him in the last at Stratford the potential payout would have been £2,228,374.40. However Betfred's maximum payout is £1 million.

The punter took an early price of 33-1 on the horse, but after drifting to 40-1 it could only manage third and he ended up winning £76,203.

Betfred spokesman Dave Metcalf said: "You would never expect to see so much riding on a handicap hurdle at Stratford on a Saturday night, and we certainly breathed a huge sigh of relief when it got beat after leading for most of the way."
