Another rollover as Smooth Stepper ends Tote Scoop6 hopes

Scoop6SuperClub got a right result today!  Unable to place our Scoop6 perm, we dodged a bullet, as it was a last leg heartbreak in this week’s Tote Scoop6. Smooth Stepper, the only horse not covered in Haydock’s Grand National Trial, spoilt the party for those who were on the other 9 horses.

Chasing a win fund of £174,907.98 , a total of 31 units had successfully negotiated the five preceding legs. As Alex Hales’s gelding dug deep to fight off Lord Du Mesnil, who was carrying 4 hopeful units, the possibility of another rollover became reality.

Minor upsets in the opening two legs had already seen the hopeful pool reduced to 5% of its original size. We will almost certainly be playing next Saturday, so get the funds in early please.

Firstly, this weekend disappointing runs for Sam Brown and Pym coupled with a commanding performance for Colin Tizzard’s Copperhead took out 84% of the starting pool. Another beaten favourite at Haydock saw The Worlds End fold tamely as Emitom showed that he could yet fulfil his potential as a top staying chaser.

The units continued to fall as Ballyoptic, the second-least popular horse in the Keltbray Swinley Chase, enhanced his Grand National claims with a dominant display at Ascot.

Victory for Sir Psycho allowed some respite, justifying favouritism and marking himself as a very progressive juvenile hurdler.

The penultimate Scoop6 leg went the way of Aiden Coleman and Neil King as Nordano, the sole four-year-old in the field, led from start to finish in Ascot’s 3:00. That win ensured 31 units stood a chance of landing the double-rollover pool, but it proved to be a bumpy ride with Smooth Stepper denying them at the death.

Tote spokesman Ben Stones said: “Interest in next week’s Scoop6 is set to increase further, with the rollover pool growing to monumental levels. We could be in for exciting day of racing at Kempton and Newcastle in seven days' time.”
