Scoop6 15 June 2018

The tote scoop6 is a fantastic pool bet which gives you the chance to win a fortune for a £2 stake.

The challenge is to select all 6 winners from 6 races during Saturday meetings.

If you meet this challenge you will win a share of the scoop6 win fund, which is frequently worth over £1 million, and you will also get the chance to play for the scoop6 bonus fund by picking the winner of a race the following Saturday.

Even if you fail to select all six winners you can win a share of the scoop6 place fund if your selections place in each of the 6 races. Even this lower prize has paid out over £1000 per winner 11 times in the last 12 months. All this for a £2 stake!

GOOD MAN VINNIE has been one to follow in recent weeks and can claim a hat-trick for Paul Henderson. Suited by drying ground, the seven-year-old is going the right way and can defy a further 8lb rise. Course winners Silver Man and Petrou deserve respect, the latter in particular for the in-form Dan Skelton. Ballyboker Breeze was a solid second on his reappearance at Southwell and is expected to build on that.

Cause Toujours looked much better when making a winning debut for Ian Williams after appearing in danger of becoming disappointing for his former yard, but this is a tougher race and he could prove vulnerable against MELODY OF SCOTLAND. Making his first start for Alan King, it is worth noting that Barry Geraghty comes over for the ride, and this well-related French import will be fancied to make a successful UK bow. Mick Thonic can chase them home for third.

HARRY BEAU bounced back to form with a good performance at Brighton to beat Nutini, who reopposes here, and he is more than capable of defying the 6lb penalty he received for that success. The aforementioned Nutini is respected meeting the selection on better terms than last time, while Kinglami has been in good heart recently and completes the shortlist.

Landed handicap at Perth (for the second year running) in good style but probably lined up for that and faces much more competition for the lead this time, so might struggle to overcome the penalty.

Winner of five chases and a point-to-point from 2m 4f to 3m on good and good to soft ground. Won on his latest outing in a chase when 7-2jt-fav at Perth over 2m 4f (good) earlier this month, beating Ramonex by 13l. Carries a 7lb penalty today for that success.

Struggling for form generally, but perhaps working way back to full fitness the last twice and landed this race from a higher mark last year, so certainly worth considering for an in-form yard.

Winner of a hurdle race and six chases from 2m to 2m 1f on good to firm and good ground. Well beaten at 15-2 behind Festive Affair when seventh of 8 on his latest outing in a chase at Ludlow over 2m (good) last month.

Indian Temple was in fine form when a runaway winner at Perth and has to be respected under a 7lb penalty. However, he has to concede plenty of weight, which gives FREE STONE HILL a chance to register a first chase victory having knocked on the door on his two most recent outings, and he remains on a mark lower than his best rating over hurdles. Pearls Legend is a consistent performer to note, with Champagne At Tara also considered following his Towcester third and with Barry Geraghty in the plate.
