Another day, another big winning accumulator. At this stage I’m beginning to think that everyone and the nan has tapped into latent fine tuned sports analysis skills! The latest big winner to be highlights here is hot off the press and involves a lucky punter’s football selections from the second round of the Carabao Cup.
The man in question staked just £10 on a seven event accumulator. The acca involved predicting that each of the seven selections would win ‘to nil’. The selections and corresponding scores are as follows:
Predicting any football team to ‘win to nil’ of course has many of variables at play because so much can happen over the course of a game. As it happens though, most of these results went rather precisely to plan, with the exception of the Brighton vs Southampton game where Brighton held out until the 88th minute.
So what did the winner pocket as a result of his £10 bet you ask? A cool £21,547.61 based on odds of around 2000-1 for this unlikely combo. Not a bad day’s work, and it just goes to show how profitable multiple bets can be with the right combinaton of skill and good fortune.

In the British Stallions EBF Fillies’ Nursery Handicap (2.20) at Leicester on Monday, Quiet Waters is on a retrieval mission after finishing last of 14 on her handicap debut at Newmarket earlier this month. However, she was fractious in the stalls and heavily eased by jockey Edward Greatrex once it became clear she wasn’t going to be involved in the finish; she’s better judged on her previous form, in novice median auction races, which suggested her opening handicap mark was fair enough.
In the Nelson Fillies’ Handicap (2.50), Point In Time failed to trouble the judge in three starts on synthetic surfaces as a juvenile but, switched to turf, has made steady progress this season, culminating with a win, in this grade, at Newmarket 17 days ago. The daughter of Champs Elysees has been raised 4lb for that effort, but wasn’t beaten far in a 0-85 fillies’ handicap over course and distance on her penultimate start and can continue on an upward curve.
In the Coalville Yellow Cab and Underwood Equine Handicap (3.20), Welliesinthewater rallied well in the closing stages to only be beaten a head and a neck in a similar contest, over course and distance, last month. The testing 7 furlongs at Leicester appears to play to his strengths and, with a 1lb rise in the weights unlikely to make much difference, he can finally strike for Paddy Mathers, who’s ridden him seven times without success.
Selections: Quiet Waters, Point In Time, Welliesinthewater, 1-point Win Trixie
Well truth be told, I’d never even heard of Rob Tidy, but the scale of his win from $100, alongside his exasperated Fathers series of apologies for his stunning good luck, makes for enthralling viewing!
