Scoop6 21 July 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!

Dan Skelton has been in fine form this summer, currently operating at a strike-rate of 39%, and the handler who landed this with Red Tornado in 2016 can enjoy success this time with his hat-trick seeking FAIR MOUNTAIN, who has impressed when routing the opposition the last twice and now looks to make his mark in handicap company. Stablemate Mister Universum is respected and was in good order when winning at Warwick when last seen in May, while Artful Artist got off the mark in good style in a Southwell maiden last time and looks the type Dr Richard Newland could have plenty of success with. 2017 winning trainer Evan Williams relies on durable veteran Court Minstrel this time and the 11-year-old is respected back to the same mark as when winning the Silver Trophy at Chepstow last October.

Almoghared is the most interesting player in the line-up, switched to handicap company after finishing fourth behind subsequent Group 1 winner Kew Gardens in the Queen's Vase at Royal Ascot, but Willie Mullins' STRATUM gets the nod. This high-class dual purpose performer arrives on the back of a career-best performance in the Ascot Stakes, where he ran a blinder to finish third despite being caught wide throughout. Dropping back from 2m4f shouldn't be a problem and the first-time hood could eke out further improvement, so a big run looks on the cards. Coeur de Lion, sixth in the Ascot Stakes, and Quloob, who wears first-time cheekpieces, are others to note.

MELODIC MOTION may prefer slightly softer ground than she is likely to encounter here but she clearly brings the best form to the table. A close second in the Park Hill and third in the Lillie Langtry last year gives the four-year-old a big shout and she can bounce back after a disappointing seasonal return at York. Ejtyah clearly failed to show her best in the Oaks but the return to fast ground should suit based on her effort in the Musidora. Alwaysandforever and Highgarden are the pick of the remainder.
