Good few years back (99) on Celtic Giant of Len Lungo's in the Fulke Walwyn/Kim Muir Amateur race.

Bet it at 33's and 25's...Bruce Gibson sent it out in front and was 30 lengths cleat at one point. Came home well ahead of the field.

Bet it at 4's to win small Novice Hurdle one day at Ayr (Fri of Scottish National meet) from memory and watched for it after that.

Moscow Flyer - Champion Chase (bet him big both times, also bet him big the year he unseated too)

Collier Bay in the CH. Backed at 20/1 ante post and again on the day. I backed the Supreme winner £5 at 25/1 that day to give me some more ammunition for CB. Ventura Canyon denied me an opening 3 race treble by beating Arctic Kinsman in the Arkle.
Biggest flat win was Piccolo at 33/1 in the Kings Stand. I had it in an each way double with Venture Capitalist at 50/1 in the Wokingham who was fourth. I stood to win £18k on the win double but still cleared over £1000.

most enjoyable was inglis drever first win 6/1,stood infront of best mate stand shouting at everyone to buy my shoes(which i had in my hand),then heard and inglis drever is coming between them,didnt watch run in just celebrated in  front of stand with my shoes in the air.

An antepost yankee of Back in Front (Supreme), Moscow Flyer (Arkle), One Knight (RSA Chase at 33s) was a big winner. Pizzaro in the Sun Alliance Hurdle was the other one - telephone numbers if he had won. I thought Williamson gave him a bad ride but probably my pocket talking.

Chance Coffey a/p Coral Cup at 33/1, think it was 1995. At least 20lb in hand and trainer PF O'Donnel was reported in the Racing Post as wheeling the contents of his bank account around to the bookies. Irish horses haven't been so well handicapped since. In the Racing Post the next day winning jockey GM O'Neill said "if you thought that was good wait until you see Imperial Call next year." Backed that at 40/1 for the Gold Cup. Halcyon days.

Most satisfying is the following:-

48 x 30p accs in four races on Friday 13th.  Out of this came
Zaynar 11-2
American Trilogy 22-1
Kauto Star 2-1 (and a banker)
Oh Crick 9-1

£1,345.50.  As per all gamblers I could easily have had Cappa Bleu in that too (but admit I would have put a couple more in and would have made it a 144 x 30p acc .....and I guess we all do these bets more in hope than anticipation).  Had £40 at 11/2 and £30 at 6/1 - so a very good day.
