Punter hits the jackpot with magnificent seven at Wolverhampton

Punter hits the jackpot with magnificent seven at Wolverhampton

Irish raider Mr Boss Man was one of six winning favourites at Wolverhampton in the 32RedSport.com Handicap as one punter picked up over £245,000 for a total outlay of just £30.

The online William Hill customer, a 34-year-old from the Southampton area, backed every winner on the seven-race card, with his bet consisting of a £10 each-way seven-fold and a further £10 win seven-fold.

He placed his bets at 10pm on Tuesday night, taking a number of early prices.

Trained by Ado McGuinness, the eight-year-old Mr Boss Man was having his second trip to Britain in the space of a week after winning over a mile and three-quarters previously.

Stepped up to two miles and with a 6lb penalty he just held on from Pass The Time under Pat Cosgrave as the 7-4 favourite.

“The two miles might just stretch him a bit on the Flat,” said McGuinness.

“I think it was more to do with the fact that Pat got shuffled a bit further back than he ideally wanted.

“That meant going out on the second circuit he had to set him alight a bit to pass a few.

“Probably a mile and three-quarters is his perfect trip, though.
