Whilst three people won a huge £643,903.40 from Saturday's Scoop 6, you have to feel for the unlucky punters.

Thirteen people missed out on a whopping £148k after the horse they backed, Silva Eclipse was beaten by a nose when it was overtaken in the final moments of the Old Boston Handicap Hurdle at Haydock.

"A few drinks were required afterwards but more in sorrow than anger really. I've done the Scoop6 for donkey's years and I've had a few occasions where I've been knocking on the door but I've never come as close as this one.

"I'm actually quite philosophical about these things. I've been punting on horses for a long time. I take the good and the not-so-good in equal measure really.

"You can study form for hours but at the end of the day, if the luck's not with you you're not going to win," Ridgeway added.
