Heartbreak as £16,000 is Lost in Final Fence Blunder

Punters Left Devastated as Hurlerontheditch Falls at Last Hurdle

It was a devastating moment for punters as they watched £16,000 disappear in an instant due to a blunder at the final fence. Hurlerontheditch had been comfortably leading the handicap chase at Warwick, with a 20-length advantage. However, disaster struck when the leader slipped on landing, unseating the rider and paving the way for Rockinastorm to claim victory.

A Spectacular Fall

David Bass had guided Hurlerontheditch expertly throughout the race, with just one obstacle left to navigate. Unfortunately, at odds of 11-4, the favorite knuckled on landing and unseated Bass in a spectacular fashion. This unexpected turn of events allowed Rockinastorm, at odds of 4-1, to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat under the guidance of Jonathan Burke.

Hurlerontheditch's Calamitous Error

While Rockinastorm celebrated its unexpected win, the real story of the race was Hurlerontheditch and its catastrophic mistake. Fortunately, the horse was unharmed, but punters who had backed Hurlerontheditch were left feeling the pain. A total of £16,000 was matched on the horse at the lowest possible price, with many punters expressing their disbelief and heartbreak at the outcome.

One punter said, "I cannot believe what I've just seen. To land the four out of four and a huge four-fold, race in Hurlerontheditch's hands and he's jumped the fence nicely and didn't land it. Hope the horse and jockey are okay, but that's agonizing."

Another comment read, "Hurlerontheditch, no words. Jumped like an absolute stag the whole way round. Glad he seems to be okay, but I feel robbed."

Despite the heartbreak, it's important to remember to gamble responsibly.
