five-figure windfall just as the bookmakers were counting the cost of a popular irish winner at the Grand National. The anonymous winner ignored the big meeting at Aintree and instead opted for a €0.38 Lucky 63 and €2.50 each -way accumulator on their BoyleSports account, featuring six horses running on Saturday evening at Lingfield and Wolverhampton.

10/1 pick Wolflet got the ball rolling by winning the 4.55 at Lingfield, while the Wolverhampton winners were quickly racked up by way of Seaforth (10/1), Ben Lilly (6/1) and Excel Power (3/1). 11/1 shot Klopp was only second in the 7.45 at Wolverhampton, but 5/1 Desert Friend secured the lucky punter their fifth winner from six selections in the last race of the evening. That was enough to turn their total investment of €52.88 into a whopping total of €19,769.47.

Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “We took a bit of a hit with such a well backed winner of the Grand National, but our Monaghan customer did extremely well to rub salt into our wounds on Saturday evening. They picked out some crackers and we congratulate them on their fantastic win just shy of €20,000.”
