Our Punter of the Week is GB, from Queensland, who walked away close to $3,000 richer after landing a chunky exotic in the last race at Friday’s twilight meeting at Doomben.
Leaving out favourites Don’t You Know Him and Enterprise March, GB instead opted for value and boxed his four preferred outsiders into a First4, applying a 16c stake to his 24 individual combinations for a total outlay of $3.84.
Having jumped awkwardly, Craig Newitt settled the Heinrich/Rodgers trained mare Cabin Fever at the tail end of the field before unleashing a powerful run up along the rails to claim the race by half a length from La Scopa and Cabeirian.
With Knock Toff edging out the two main fancies for fourth our punter’s bet was a winner, the final STAB dividend of $16,916.90 ensuring a return of $2,706.70 for his efforts.
Nice work GB!
