Scoop 6 Millions
The appearance of Kikos in the 2m 4f handicap chase at Huntingdon on Saturday seems to have taken an interesting twist in the last 12 hours. As most will be aware there is a massive Tote Scoop 6 win fund this week, the last leg of which was due to be the veterans chase at Huntingdon, but looking at the entries it has been decided (provisionally, until final declarations) to include Kikos' race instead, which will now be shown live on Channel 4, as it has drawn a larger number of entries. This potentially means that the destination of the estimated £5 million pounds win fund is in our hands!! No pressure then!! Added to this is the fact that he may well be made favourite for the race, as the form of his last run at Uttoxeter is working out well. Pop Ahead who finished 5th that day won at Leicester on Monday, and Gone For One who was the favourite at Uttoxeter only to unseat (when beaten) hacked up by 12 lengths last week. All good form and an exciting day in store on Saturday. For Club members that have said they would like badges, please note that his race time may change from 1.50 to 3.30pm. I am also in negotiations to secure a private box for the afternoon, and I will keep you posted on that!
