£1 Lucky 15 wins a punter £6,282 at Cheltenham
Last year at the UK's biggest and best horse racing meeting, the Cheltenham Festival, there were many big winners, but one stand out performance was by one shrewd punter whose £1 Lucky 15 won him an impressive £6,282.50!
You are most likely aware of a bet to win or an each way bet. However a ‘Lucky 15' is one of the most popular bets that people enjoy on the races as it offers many different combinations and chances to win, and win big if all the bets come in.
A Lucky 15 is simply four selections consisting of 15 separate bets, and in order to get a return only one has to win. And as it is 15 separate bets, a £1 Lucky 15 will cost you £15. But as mentioned, if they all come in you are likely to win a lot more than you staked.
It isn't as hard as it may first appear either; the four selections that scooped over £6,000 were fancied horses that all had a good chance of winning their respective races.
1. O'Faolains Boy at 12/1 in the RSA Chase - Ran in Albert Bartlett previous year (like 3 of last 4 winners) and finished in the top 3 last time out (like the last 26 winners).
2. Sire De Grugy at 11/4 in the Champion Chase - Had a run in the same calendar year (like the last 11 winners) and contested the Tingle Creek at Sandown (like 9 of last 13 winners).
3. Vautour at 7/2 in the Supreme Novices - Won last time out (like 15 of last 17 winners) and ran in the previous 45 days (like 16 of the last 19 winners).
4. Silver Concorde at 16/1 in the Champion Bumper - Won last time out (like 19 of previous 21 winners), Irish trained (like 16 of previous 21 winners).
Placing a Lucky 15 with William Hill is easy and four horses that have caught our eye for this year are the following*:
1. Douvan at 6/4 in the Supreme Novices Hurdle 10th March 13:30 - Willie Mullins, Rich Ricci and Ruby Walsh have combined for the last two winners of the Supreme Novices' Hurdle, with all three bringing Douvan to Cheltenham this time around. GET A GUARANTEED RETURN ON THIS RACE - MORE INFO HERE
2. Jezki at 5/1 in the Champion Hurdle 10th March 15:20 - The reigning Champion Hurdler and he will love returning to Cheltenham. He has improved every single year that he has run and should be in peak physical condition when it matters
3. Champagne Fever at 6/1 in the Champion Chase 11th March 15:20 - If Western Warhorse hadn't managed to get his head in front in last year's Arkle, Champagne Fever would be a three time Cheltenham Festival winner. He can make it three this time around in a race where the top two in the betting (Sprinter Sacre and Sire De Grugy) look potentially vulnerable
4. Road to Riches at 9/1 in the Gold Cup 13th March 15:20 - Ireland's best chance of winning the Gold Cup, he's a much improved horse landing the JNwine.com Champion Chase at the start of the season and also winning the Lexus at Leopardstown's Christmas meeting. He will love the hustle and bustle of the Festival, jumps like a very good horse and is potentially still improving.
