The Scoop6 could well be heading up to a truly remarkable sum of £10 million next weekend. The amazing streak of rollovers on the big horse racing bet continued after no-one managed to damage the total of £7.4 million sitting in the prize pots ahead of Saturday’s action. It was another remarkable day, with 207 tickets still in the running at the fifth leg, it looked as if the big rollover may actually go.

But then at the Swinton Hurdle at Haydock, the fifth leg of the bet, Ballyglasheen broke the hearts of those still still in the running. Around 192,000 tickets were in play at the start of the six-leg bet and with four legs down and 207 ticket remaining, 12 of the 13 runners in the Swinton Hurdle were covered by the remaining tickets.

The only one that wasn’t was the 25/1 shot Ballyglasheen, and his nail biting victory in a three-way finish to deny Barizan and Vibrato Valtat, who had 29 and 69 units on them respectively, meant that not a single ticket remained going into the last leg.

Early estimates suggest next week’s bet could soar to £10 million with the races split between Thirsk, Newbury and Newmarket.

Scoop6 breakdown

After leg 1: 191,878 tickets

After leg 2: 9,238

After leg 3: 1,348

After leg 4: 207

After leg 5: 0

Totepool spokesman Andrew Griffiths said: ‘The Scoop6 never ceases to amaze – we had a crazy week last week with two 40-1 winners and today Ballyglasheen has come from the clouds.

‘Vibrato Valtat looked nailed on and punters would have thought ‘we’re in here’ but Ballyglasheen spoiled the party.’

The remarkable run of the Scoop6 six continues after yet another weekend in producing no winner. Yet another rollover on the bet happened on the weekend, and for one punter it was a dramatic sixth leg. Just one ticket had gone forth to the final race of the day, and had that ticket been backing the winner, it could have landed around £3 million on the win fund.

Heartbreakingly, it wasn’t to be though. But that is as close as anyone has come to winning the Scoop6 in the last couple of weekends.

So now the rollover has taken the win fund and the bonus fund combined up to a massive £7.5 million. The record breaking rollover will see the win fund alone likely stand around the £4.6 million, according to early estimates from online betting site BetFred.

The combined pools were at £5.5 million after last weekend, which failed to produce a winning ticket again. With more and more punters jumping on board with the dream of landing that record breaking fund, it is going to get bigger.

How much longer can it roll over for? The last two weekends you could have taken an odds on price that it was going to be won, but somehow it has still remained intact.

If you have never tried the Scoop6 before, well, this would be the time to do it.

Online betting site Betfred, owner of the Tote, will give all Scoop6 players this Saturday a free £2 bet to use on Sunday. Just stake £2 or more on the Scoop6 at or Betfred Mobile to qualify.

Roll on over to online betting site Paddy Power before the renewal of the famous Grand National gets underway on Saturday. The much anticipated race, held at Aintree is one of the most gruelling, demanding and thrilling runs in the Sport of Kings anywhere in the world. Everyone dreams of picking the Grand National winner out the big field, which usually ends up being more of a crap shoot than anything which goes to form.

So extra coverage on the race is going to be valuable and that is what is on offer at online betting site Paddy Power. The highly popular bookmaker are paying out to five places in 2014 Aintree Grand National betting, which makes those each way bets just that little bit more value.

You can of course also get yourself a Free Grand National bet from the bookmaker as well for joining up. New account sign-ups can take advantage of the bookies great £50 free bet offer, which they give out in matching the value of the first stake placed on your new account.

Fantastic value all around for your 2014 Grand National betting odds and who is taking your fancy this year? Will it be the evergreen legs of Tidal Bay trading at 18/1, or the trending Monbeg Dude, former Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Long Run or the outright favourite Teaforthree?

That of course is just the tip of the iceberg in Grand National odds, a race which has before thrown up 100/1 winner Mon Mone back in 2008 and last year there was a massive 66/1 winner in the form of Auroras Encore. So it pretty much is just a sweepstakes shot, but the favourites have their place too.

Two of the last six renewals of the Grand National has actually seen the favourite take the line first. In 2008 Comply or Die took a win as 7/1 joint favourite and then two years later Don’t Push It was a 10/1 joint favourite winner of the famous slog. So what does that tell you for your Grand National betting? Anyone in the field pretty much has a chance over.

It has been said that this latest renewal isn’t one of the higher quality fields that has lined up for the running for Grand National Betting. But still, when it comes time to raise the tape and the charges all start thundering down the Aintree track, the thrills and excitement will be heavy, like it is perhaps in no other race. Don’t overlook anyone and the big prices that are on offer in the race, means that you can hedge your bets pretty well across everyone from favourites, to a solid chasing pack, all the way out to those long shots, who in this case would be 125/1 shot Kruzhlinin, with Hunt Ball, Buckers Bridge, One In A Milan, Swing Bill, Twirling Magnet and Golan way at 100/1.

Teaforthree has continued to hold ground at the head of 2014 Grand National betting, originally out at 20/1 but now in as 10/1 favourite with online betting site Paddy Power. After finishing third in last year’s renewal and looking strong under foot and in his jumping, his flawless performance has put him at the head of the market and he has pretty much stayed there. A solid run at the 2014 Cheltenham Gold Cup, where he was pressing for a place finish but fell away at the end, has left the Rebecca Curtis trained ten year old as favourite for the showcase race at the Aintree Festival.

There has been such little movement in the field since back at the start of February, that punters haven’t had to go digging too deeply in picking out an option on who will win the Grand National 2014. It could just be that isn’t a very high quality Grand National this time around and it is perhaps reading as a bit weaker than usual. On top of his eighth placed finish at the Gold Cup, the only other run out for Teaforthree has had this year in preparation was a second at Ascot to Restless Harry in mid February. Still, he looks the best shot in a somewhat shallow field.

Long run’s market action has been significant in the build up, coming in from an early ante post of 25/1 to a current 11/1 shot with Paddy Power. The former Cheltenham Gold Cup runner hasn’t been at his best for some time now, but again, punters have recognised that there is probably value in the experience and proven winning mentality that he has produced before. Again, with him not being that strong, certainly nowhere near his Gold Cup heyday, it is a reflection of the overall status of 2014 Grand National betting, being a bit limited in genuine option.

Tidal Bay, last season’s Welsh National winner Monbeg Dude and Sunnyhillboy are all been floating around the 16/1, Monbeg Dude having seen a lot of drifting and trimming of his odds, while Sunnyhillboy has taken a sharp market cut from 33/1 to his current price. Tidal Bay seems to be running well and took second at the Hennessey back in February, a long way back of Last Instalment. The veteran chaser has been dropped 7lb in his official racing for the running of the £1 million Aintree Grand National.

Triolo d’Alene had been around the sixteen-to-one mark, but has since drifted out to 20/1, but he makes a fascinating proposition in Grand National betting. He has won over the National fences before and he had a decent run out at the 2014 cheltenham Festival, but was hampered in his Gold Cup run. Promising aspects there for him.

Not trading at 20/1 Triolo d’Alene looks a fantastic each way shot alongside Rocky Creek who would have had his nose in the 2014 Cheltenham Gold Cup had it not been for an unfortunate bout of ringworm. The Paul Nicholls trained charge though could make quite the splash on his arrival at Aintree, because there is nothing wrong with jumping and settles in to travel well too. For some he will be just a touch green this year to take on such a big challenge, but does has the making of being a future star in the race. Again, value enough in taking an each way bet.

So who will win the 2014 Grand National? Well the race does seem set and therefore the taking by Teaforthree but it is worth looking at some longer odds. But would look for a Long Run revival to come. He has Sam Waley-Cohen in the saddle and he has shown signs of getting back to his best, in particular at the Betfair Chase. It has been hard to judge where he is really at, but if he was in the peak of his form then he would be top weight. Gunning to be just the third horse to win both the Gold Cup and the Grand National, and skipped Cheltenham this year for Aintree.

With the excitement of the 2014 Cheltenham Festival done and dusted, there final forfeit stage of the 2014 Grand National betting has just past, so the build up to the next big event is gaining momentum. The 2014 Grand National runs on April 5th at Aintree of course and at this latest stage, there are 73 runners in contention for glory at the moment.

Topping the market is Teaforthree who will be carrying top weight in a weight-adjusted rating of 180. He came home third in last year’s renewal but didn’t put a foot wrong in the race. It was that accomplished run which has put him into a position of favoritism. He did take a run at the Cheltenham Gold Cup in March, and while he was pressing the leaders well, from about three out, he just didn’t have any extra pace left to challenge in the race and dropped all the way back to eighth.

In ante post Grand National 2014 betting, there has been natural interest in Tidal Bay. The experienced chaser, should he take the win this year, will become just the first teenage winner of the race since Sergeant Murphy took the win back in 1923. History is against Tidal Bay a bit, because there have only been three winners of the race who have been older than twelve, the oldest being Peter Simple in 1853 at 15 years old.

Tidal Bay is a threat and is only 2lb below Teathreeforthree in the 2014 Grand National ratings. He should be a fine fit for the conditions and the trip around Aintree and since joining up with Paul Nicholls back in 2011, he has found top form, including wins at the Lexus Chase and the Bet365 Gold Cup, the latter being won at top weight.

After opening around 25/1 in 2014 Grand National betting, Tidal Bay has been backed right into 16/1 at the final forfeit stage. Former Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Long Run, after a disappointing term, has just been showing some positive signs again. With him paired up with Sam Waley-Cohen in the saddle, who has posted a great record over the National Fences, should make Long Run a pretty decent each way wager for many.

Some of the notbale absentees at the final forfeit stage included 2014 Cheltenham Gold Cup runner-up On His Own, Seabass and Home Farm.

2014 Grand National Betting Odds at Bet Victor
Teaforthree 10/1, Tidal Bay 16/1, Long Run 18/1, Monbeg Dude 20/1, Rock Creek 25/1, Triolo D’Alene 20/1, Colbert Station 25/1, Burton Port 25/1, Godsmejudge28/1, Mossey Joe 28/1, bar 33/1

Cheltenham Festival Betting

The 2014 Cheltenham Gold Cup. One of the most coveted titles in all of horse racing. The famous race will get its next renewal on Thursday, March 11th and punters have long been eying up the market. The reigning champion Bobs Worth has been market leader for a long time now, and there may not be too many surprises in this year’s running. The favourite is expected to deliver without too much fuss or hassle.

Here we take a look at the main challengers in the mix for 2014 Cheltenham Gold Cup betting. Prices are current at online betting site 888Sport.

Bobs Worth 7/4
The reigning champion and he has everything going for him. In fact his chances for the renewal should be heightened because the challengers around him have question marks about them. Bobs Worth won this at a canter last year, breezing home seven lengths clear of Sir Des Champs. Trainer Nicky Henderson seems happy with him and that should just be about good enough for many punters.

Silviniaco Conti 3/1
Ruby Walsh had Silviniaco Conti tracking well in last year’s Cheltenham Gold Cup, but his challenge was undone when he fell three out. There was also another mistake in there from his well at the ninth. However, he does look to be the closest challenger to Bobs Worth, but still looks a more probable second than first. He is a better traveller than Bobs Worth, but he has to work just that much harder all round, and won’t have the length in a duel with Bobs Worth down the final stretch.

Last Instalment 7/1
There have been concerns over the ground drying up too much for Last Instalment to have a shot at the Gold Cup. Owner Philip Fenton had the all clear to run his horses at the Gold Cup after an investigation by the BHA found no evidence of anabolic steroids after he faced charges of possessing them. Last Instalment, the Irish Hennessy winner in January, and with conditions drying at Cheltenham, even if they force him, the conditions may simply not be right.

Triolo D’Alene 10/1
Nicky Henderson could pull something special out of the bag with Triolo D’Alene. After working out well over distance, AP McCoy has taken up the challenge of him. He has been widely cut in the market as punters have began to see more and more promise in him. He was trading out as far as 25/1 at one point, and he has rapidly become the most popular alternative to Bobs Worth. A high class horse who could perform and a fantastic each way shot for glory.

First Lieutenant 10/1
Well despite coming in at a low mark for the Gold Cup, trainer Mouse Morris isn’t sure whether he will actually have a better shot in the Ryanair Chase again this year, a race in which he finished runner up to Cue Card in the 2013 renewal. He finished second to Bobs Worth in the 2012 RSA after his big win over Rock on Ruby in the 2011 Neptune Novices’ Hurdle. The Ryanair, who is second favourite this year, may be the better fit.

The Giant Bolster 16/1
You know what you will get from him. A lot of huff and puff, a lot of working being put in, and he is likely to finish in the top four. Top value for an each way bet or a place market shot, and took a win at Cheltenham over Rocky Creek in the Argento back at the start of the year. May not quite have enough to finish the race strongly though, as likely to weaken when it matters most.

The Supporting Cast
Captain Chris, a solid chaser was withdrawn from the field on Money, leaving On His Own and Harry Topper as the challengers around the 25/1 mark. While they have their assets, they really shouldn’t get too close to toppling the big two in the race.

2014 Cheltenham Gold Cup Tip
Bobs Worth is the one to catch and many people will be thinking that Silviniaco Conti has the best chance of doing so. Would still back the favourite out of the two, but the big shot, the big plunge of 2014 Gold Cup betting has to be Triolo D’Alene who is looking a fantastic price for a shot at this as an each way wager.

Online betting site 888Sport are offering customers the chance to get a free £5 bet on each day of racing at the Cheltenham Festival. Place a £5 bet on two or more races in one day at Cheltenham, and the bookie will give you a free £5 bet for the next day’s racing. New customers registering an account with them can also get up to £88 worth of free bets as a welcome bonus too.

Cheltenham Festival Betting

2014 World Hurdle betting at Cheltenham should be one of the most exciting races of the week. Punters will get to see the massive duel between Annie Power and Big Buck’s in the race. Ruby Walsh will be in the saddle of Annie Power, and the connections, who have lined her up with her best shot of top glory at the 2014 Cheltenham Festival, aren’t concerned about the Mare staying the distance in the race.

Annie Power is unbeaten in all ten of her starts and could have lined up against Hurricane fly in the Champion Hurdle, but as soon as it was announced that she was heading to the World Hurdle, bookmakers put her in at a short price alongside Big Buck’s. However, after the announcement that Ruby Walsh would be in the saddle, most brought her into joint favouritism, and the backing since has seen her take position as favourite in the field at 7/4 with sponsors Ladbrokes.

The staying power is about the only question about Annie Power as she has never gone the distance of the three miles, which the World Hurdle is over. Her longest strike was two miles, four and a half furlongs back in January at Cheltenham. Everyone behind the phenomenon that is Annie Power, suggests that the longer she goes, the more it will suit her. Trainer Willie Mullins may have taken the advantage by nabbing Ruby Walsh.

Walsh rode Big Buck’s to 18 wins from 19 starts when riding for Paul Nicholls, and for the first time he will get to go up against his former ride. In the saddle this time of Big Buck’s will be Sam Twiston-Davies and the four time winner of the event hasn’t been deserted by punters, and is still trading strongly. He has the proven staying power and will be looking to get back on top after missing last year’s Cheltenham Festival through injury.

After 420 days out through injury, he made his return to action at the Cleeve Hurdle at Cheltenham in January and could only manage a second behind Knockara Beau. Some though that Big Bucks had fluffed his line, while Paul Nicholls said he needed the hard race on bad ground to test where he was at. The trainer went on to say that since that run, Big Bucks is lighter, stronger and primed for a fifth World Hurdle.

This frankly is looking like a two horse race, with only At Fishers Cross,who underwent extensive treatment to try and solve physical problems, didn’t quite hit the mark in outings at Ascot and Newbury. With Annie Power and Big Buck’s at the head of the field for 2014 World Hurdle betting, it shouldn’t be too difficult of a task to pull a forecast out of your hat for this one.

2014 World Hurdle Betting Odds at Ladbrokes
Annie Power 7/4, Big Bucks 11/4, At Fishers Cross 6/1, Quevega 8/1, Rule The World 8/1, More Of That 8/1, Zarkandar 1/1, Salubrious 14/1, Celestial Halo 16/1, Bar 20/1

2014 World Hurdle Betting Tip: This is one of those which is really hard to split. Does Annie Power have that extra distance? Big Buck’s is such a proven champion at this distance, it may be worth leaning back towards him for a fifth title.

Cheltenham Festival Betting

Well, Bobs Worth keeps getting shortened in the market, and is now running as 7/4 favourite with online betting site Boylesports. This may be a bit of a predictable Gold Cup, as trainer Nicky Henderson looks to land back to back wins in the Blue Riband race with Bobs Worth. It was a stroll for him at Cheltenham last year, with Barry Geraghty leading him home by seven lengths over second placed Sir Des Champs and Long Run back in third.

Bobs Worth had a big workout in Lambourn recently, to keep him well on schedule for his title defence in the 2014 Cheltenham Gold Cup. Barry Geraghty will once again be on the saddle for Bobs Worth, who is likely to run away with this one at a canter. Bobs Worth was last out at Leopardstown at the end of December, taking a win in the Lexus Chase over First Lieutenant.

The fact that he has taken such strong favouritism is down to what could be perceived as frailties in his closest challengers.

That is where the key to figuring out who will win the Cheltenham Gold Cup 2014 will lie. Sir Bobs Worth has the staying power, even if he comes off the bridle and will work and work and work on his own to get to the line first. That could be a telling factor because the work that Silviniaco Conti will put in will likely see him firmly in the top three, but after travelling well, may not have the legs to close it out, certainly not in a head to head duel with Bobs Worth if it comes down to it.

Silviniaco Conti, who fell three out in last year’s renewal, has taken around 13% of the Cheltenham Gold Cup market compared to the 31% taken by Bobs Worth. It is a telling stat, and the 3/1 on Silviniaco Conti tells a bigger picture. His victory in the King George VI Chase though will have punters on his back.

It really is going to be a scrap for spoils of third most likely then. You will have the good, solid jumping of Captain Chris who probably makes a decent Place Market option for your Cheltenham Gold Cup betting, while The Giant Bolster is likely to be in the mix as well.

The Giant Bolster enjoys Cheltenham a lot and had two runs out there in January, weakening a couple out on January 1st in the Rewards4racing Handicap Hurdle before delivering a win over the 6/4 favourite Rocky Creek in the Argento Chase. He showed some slower, controlled jumping, putting in a strong finish there. The Giant Bolster took fourth in last year’s Gold Cup, weakening a couple out after tracking well in the race

So while you have good chasers in The Giant Bolster, Captain Chris and the threats of Last Instalment and First Lieutenant coming in, none of them, on form should be able to prevent Bobs Worth from winning back to back Gold Cups.

It is to Nicky Henderson’s Triolo D’alene who could be the dark horse in the pack for a good each way bet here. Working with Bobs Worth in training, Henderson has been impressed by the high class horse, who was last out at Newbury last December, taking a near three length win over Rocky Creek. He could make a stunning Cheltenham debut.

2014 Cheltenham Gold Cup betting odds
Bobs Worth 7/4, Silviniaco Conti 3/1, Last Instalment 7/1, First Lieutenant 10/1, Triolo D’Alene 12/1, Captain Chris 14/1, The Giant Bolster 16/1, On His Own 25/1

Online betting site Boylesports are running a festival long promotion, offering some insurance should any of your selections finish second to an AP McCoy ridden winner. If that happens at any race during the 2014 Cheltenham festival, Boylesports will refund your lost stake up to £100. New customers registering an account with Boylesports can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.
