Mrs Milner easily won the Pertemps Network Final Handicap Hurdle at odds of 12-1 in the 1.55 at Cheltenham.

Favourite The Bosses Oscar looked to be in with a great shout turning the bend, but Bryan Cooper hit the gas to bring Mrs Milner home.

That led to a tidy profit for those who backed the nag.

And 35-year-old Liverpool vice-captain Milner was among those to stick some dosh on it.

As soon as Mrs Milner crossed the line the former England midfielder was inundated with tweets and messages asking if he had backed it.

And he soon took to Twitter to confirm he had.

Milner also revealed he has nothing to do with the horse regarding its ownership.

The veteran also then jokingly explained that he may not keep hold of his winnings for long with wife Amy ‘demanding’ them.

He tweeted: “To save me replying to everyone who’s WhatsApp’d me…
