, Lucky Scottish punter wins £5k from £3 racing treble with Paddy Power ensuring a weekend to remember

A LUCKY Scottish punter struck gold on the races winning nearly five grand from a three quid bet.

The winning Paddy Power treble took place across Friday’s cards at Haydock, Redcar and Newcastle.

The treble came good in a golden three hour spell

The crafty punter from the Scottish Borders placed £3.25 on the treble, which quickly turned into £4,975.

Air Raid got the bet off to a flyer winning a Haydock handicap at odds of 16-1.

The Jedd O’Keeffe-trained gelding narrowly saw off Lincoln Park in a tight-finish.

Quickly after that the bet rolled on to Redcar and it was more straightforward as Sassoon bolted up by nearly six lengths.

Ben Haslam’s horse was never threatened and the lucky punter began to think he might be in business.

Attention switched to the all weather track at Newcastle for the final leg of the treble.

Hunters Step got the nod from the in-form punter in the 5.25 handicap.

The 11-1 shot was in rear for much of the race, but came with a strong winning run a furlong out to score by nearly two lengths.

The Nigel Tinkler-trained four-year-old will be remembered fondly by Paddy Power’s customer.

With that result, the winnings of £4,973 were secured and a wicked weekend was assured.

Not bad for a Friday, eh?
