Racing: Punter hits Jackpot

A PUNTER from Forest Gate, East London, was the biggest individual winner of yesterday's huge Tote Jackpot pool at Beverley. He collected pounds 161,346 having managed to select pounds 2.40 worth of winning lines.

The total Jackpot pool of pounds 752,762 was reached after almost pounds 290,000 was added yesterday and the winning dividend of pounds 67,277 was nearly three times the equivalent of the starting-price accumulator.
