Five totescoop6 players were left cursing their luck after well backed favourite, Principe Azzurro, could only finish third in the final leg. It meant that they picked up just £30.40 from the place fund instead of a share in the £278,699 win fund. Obviously, that means that £278,699 rolls over to this weekend and with a further £174,378 in the bonus fund it is expected that a single winner of both could pick up over £650,000.
Races this week are divided between Kempton and Warwick and includes the totesport.com Classic Chase
Paul Petrie, totepool spokesman commented, "With the abandonment's and small fields it has been a while since punters have had a decent rollover to get their teeth stuck into and we expect turnover to reflect that on Saturday.
It looks a competitive scoop6 but with so much money up for grabs, the incentive is there to find the six winners."
