Our Punter of the Week is BB, from Brisbane, who won more than $15,000 after placing a successful First 4 on the Victoria Derby at Flemington on Saturday afternoon.
Applying a 41c stake to his 720 individual combinations (for a total investment of $295.20) and including the top three in betting for first place, our punter watched on as Darren Weir’s Extra Brut came to the outside at the top of the straight and held off the challenge of Stars of Carrum to give the master trainer his first success in the race, with Chapada running on strongly for third.
Having included most of the field for fourth, BB would have been pleased to see $31 shot Sikorsky fill that slot, the final STAB dividend for the First 4 settling at a whopping $38,148.50.
That ensured a return for our punter of $15,640 and gave him plenty of ammunition to attack Cup week with us.
Nice work BB!
