One punter took £14,850 from a £20 bet on a 741/1 accumulator built from races at Ludlow Racecourse

A casual midweek horse racing bet ended up being extremely profitable for one William Hill customer, as they landed an incredible £14,800 from a £20 stake. It was posted out on the official William Hill twitter account, presenting one of the smartest – or possibly luckiest – bets we’ve seen in a long time.

The bet itself played out over Wednesday afternoon at Ludlow Racecourse, with all five selections being taken from races that were conducted in succession. It started at three in the afternoon and concluded shortly after five, making it even more impressive that this punter predicted every winning horse from a single afternoon at the same racecourse.

How the 741/1 horse racing bet played out

Starting at three in the afternoon, Flashing Glance won the first race as expected at a starting price of 7/4. It was a similar situation for the second race thirty-five minutes later, as Kilfilum Cross won at odds of 3/1, resulting the race first as expected after starting as the clear favourite.

There was a fair bit of luck in 4/1 Redzor winning the third race in the bet, as he actually finished second but was classed as the winner after Champagne Well was disqualified and officially claimed second place. The fact that Champagne Wall started the race at 1/2 odds showed how much he was expected to win, but the win by default for Redzor kept the bet running into the final two race meetings.

After such an eventful second race, there wasn’t as much controversy in the 4:40 at Ludlow. Quantum Of Solace was one of several horses capable of winning the race, leaving a variety of close odds between almost all seven horses in contention, but he won the race by two lengths after originally being handed a 2/1 starting price.

One final selection in the bet needed to land in order for the punter to take all of his potential winnings. It was a five past ten race, where the punter had backed 7/2 priced Black Buble. The race itself was an easy run for the horse, which was able to cancel out any chance of 16/1 Samson’s Reach causing a shock, putting him down to second as Black Buble was crowned as the winner, completing the bet in a moderately easy way.
