One lucky punter in Meath scooped €37,772 after placing a €30 bet on five horses in the UK today.

Boylesports confirmed that the punter, who wishes to remain anonymous, placed the bet at odds of 1258/1 for races at Wolverhampton, Worcester and Sandown.

The winning accumulator started with Manhattan Skyline who won the 2:00 at Wolverhampton, before backing the victorious Handbell in the 2:30 meet.

The other three horses were Club And Trumps in the 2:10 Worcester, Tawwaaq in the 2:20 at Sandown and Who Dare Wins in the 2:55 at the same venue.

All three horses drifted from their morning prices but the lucky customer benefitted an extra €21,128.55 in special offer returns bringing their total winnings to a whopping €37,772.11.

“We would like to congratulate the county Meath punter on their savvy selections as they turned their €30 into a whopping €37,772.11," spokesperson Liam Glynn told independent.ie.

“July continues to see BoyleSports getting bashed by the punter with this big win following on from a Monaghan customer who turned their Roscommon Lucky 15 into a whopping €32.8K earlier in the month.”
