A WHOPPING £1.75 million could be up for grabs next Saturday as the Scoop6 rolled over for the ninth consecutive week. With a further £750,000 expected in the bonus fund the combined pool could reach £2.5m.

Just one ticket made it through to the final leg of the Saturday bet, with a £2 Betfred shop punter only scraping through leg five after their initial selection was a non-runner, meaning their hopes were transferred to winning favourite Tropics.

Having also selected a non-runner in the final leg, Ajman Bridge carried their hopes of a £1,362,921 payout. But Andrea Atzeni could not do the job on the 7-2 chance as the William Haggas-trained 8-1 shot Queensbury Rules spoiled the party.

With £584,109 currently in the bonus fund Betfred are expecting close to £1m to be bet into the pool next weekend.

Totepool spokesman Mark Pearson said: “We are gutted for this punter who went so close and I know it is little consolation but we would like to invite them racing next Saturday as our guests. We expect the combined funds next Saturday to be over £2.5 million.”

Leg 1: 6,202
Leg 2: 184
Leg 3: 14
Leg 4: 2
Leg 5: 1
Leg 6: 0
