Scoop6 Expected to Reach Half-Million on Saturday


It's a notable weekend for punters in the tote Scoop6 as the place fund went unclaimed last week for the first time ever and a subsequent £200,555 has been added to the fund. Early estimates are that the once-a-week pool could deliver a win fund well in excess of £500,000.

Racing begins at 2:05 with three tracks hosting Scoop6 races including Sandown and Haydock Park while Musselburgh plays host to the final race at 3:40.

A pair of graded contests anchors the card with Haydock hosting the Grade 2 Celebration Chase where a fascinating showdown is developing between Paul Nicholls Tataniano and Nicky Henderson's French Opera. Ruby Walsh and AP McCoy are set to be in the irons on the stand-out pair so audiences should be in for a 2m treat.

Sandown hosts the Grade 3 Bet365 Gold Cup Chase Handicap where Balthazar King is expected to enjoy a fair portion of the wagering. Baby Run is headlining the betting and is taking a substantial jump up from the foxhunter's chase circuit.

Musselburgh hosts the days only flat race where a proper staying contest looks set to unfold with contenders going 1m6f with 14 entries likely to complicate things for punters who remain live in the contest. Recent winner Deauville Post (American Post) could prove a popular selection as he lines up for his owner Sir Robert Ogden.
