The anonymous winner had placed a 50p Lucky 15 in a local BoyleSports shop on Thursday pinning their hopes on four horses running in evening meetings in England.

The coup was nearly scuppered from the outset, but 8/1 shot Van Gerwen won by a neck in the 5.15 at Ripon to get the ball rolling, before Tommy R (16/1) and Lismore (14/1) won at Carlisle and Sandown to complete a quickfire hat-trick.

It all came down to the 8.50 at Carlisle where 22/1 shot Card High won by half a length to make it four winners from four.
