The Tote's biggest day ever...

A week ago a Tote representative described the forthcoming Scoop6 as the biggest day in their history. So excited were the Tote, they even made a reference to this blog on their own Scoop6 blog! Seven days later, and we look forward to a day's racing that will knock last week into a cocked hat; some reports estimate £5 million will be up for grabs. At the time of writing doubts surround the participation of two runners in the six selected races; according to my elementary maths, this reduces the possible number of winning combinations from 4,181,760 to 3,484,800. Two potential non-runners and my chances of winning increase by over 696,000! There seems little doubt that the pool will be won this weekend. It's ironic that the all-weather, so often perceived as racing's poor-relation, provides the main backdrop to this richest ever pot. For those interested in trying to collect those all-weather millions, I again offer two suggestions per race which should be used as nothing more than a starting point; good luck to you all...

2.10 Lingfield: Markab, My Gacho;

2.40 Lingfield: Spring Goddess, Secret Night;

2.45 Haydock: Bill's Echo, Naunton Brook;

3.20 Lingfield: Bronze Cannon, Re Barolo;

3.30 Huntingdon: Rebel Melody, Low Delta;

3.50 Lingfield: Ceremonial Jade, Prohibit.

Just to be clear, scoop-6.co.uk isn't an official Tote site, just another fan site, but I'm happy to link to this and should do it again later this morning as long as I get time to make a 'tips' post.

Scoop-6.co.uk - thanks for that clarification.

My play for the £5 million stalled in the first leg with Markab (13/2) being headed by Atlantic City inside the final furlong. It was downhill all the way after that with no winners and not many more placed efforts. Lucky I wasn't counting on giving up the day job...

I lasted till the second leg, when Miss Brown To You's failure to oblige sank my chances. Still, it made me watch the all-weather, which I usually don't.

I lasted one leg more...:-(
Pity about Kauto, to talk of more serious stuff
