Last weekend showed the heartache nature of the totescoop6 as one £2 punter was the only remaining ticket going into the final leg and was waiting on 8/11 shot Dutch Art for a windfall of £410,960 and a chance to go for a further £579,136. With the Peter Chapple-Hyam horse disappointing in second the punter walked away with just the £13.60 place consolation. Obviously that means that the rollovers continue to build and with the combined amount just £10,000 short of £1,000,000 a single winner is guaranteed to be a millionaire. Even if a single winner does not go on to add the bonus fund they would still walk away with around £600,000.

Races are divided between Sandown and Ripon and include the Betfred Gold Cup.

Paul Petrie, totepool spokesman commented, "It is not every day that, for a £2 stake, you are waiting on an 8/11 shot to win £410,960 but that proves the life changing nature of the totescoop6. I am sure every player this week will be hoping for a similar run but with a better outcome. Of course, Sandown was where Agnes Haddock brought the bet to the front pages and we will be hoping for a similar story this weekend."
