Haddock batters bookies

Punters could have been forgiven for thinking that something fishy was going on at Sandown on Saturday when Agnes Haddock, having won over £410,000 the previous week, picked up a further £278,000 as Taranis strode out to win the competitive sixteen runner handicap hurdle. In total Agnes walked out with a take-away worth over £688,000.

The irrepressible Derek Thompson (or perhaps irreparable is a more suitable term) was on hand to cover her reactions live for Channel Four viewers.

Congratulations to Agnes, from Northwich, Cheshire, who told us she 'takes in ironing' for a living. Not for much longer I would imagine.
