TOTE RACING POST REPORT
"Last- race agony for Scoop6 punter
"ONE punter chasing yesterday's huge Scoop6 pot was just denied when BARBICAN won the final leg at Ascot by a short head from their selection SPIFER, meaning £1 million could be up for grabs in next Saturday's bet.
"Two remaining ticket holders went into the final leg, but BARBICAN'S narrow victory means £535, 852 is carried forward.
"Our sympathies go out to the Scoop6 punter who almost won a fortune, but BARBICAN'S gritty success means our combined pools could be approaching the magic millions mark next Saturday," said Totepool spokesman Andrew Griffiths .
"£342,224 was bet into the pool yesterday afternoon and there were 1,497 winners of the place fund, each picking up £45,70."
