Northampton punter nets £38,000 from £2 stake


A Northampton punter picked seven winners to turn his £2 stake into £38,099.24.

The iPhone customer got off to a flyer when his first and shortest priced selection, Maggie Park, romped home to victory at Wolverhampton before his longest shot, Allaccordion, did the business in Southwell at 12/1.

Further wins at Southwell and Wolverhampton saw the dream edge closer to reality and it was left to his last two selections Ain’t No Surprise and Chookie Royal to round off his slip and net him his windfall.

Because of bookmaker Paddy Power’s guaranteed prices concessions, he also won an additional £15,387.05 in his winnings

A spokesman for Paddy Power, which claimed it was “reeling” from its loss, said “He may have pulled our pants down but I have to congratulate our latest punting hall of fame entrant. Picking one winner can be difficult at times and to pick seven is nothing short of extraordinary.”
