A SHOCKED jockey thought ‘this is too easy’ as he cruised home on a jaw-dropping 125-1 winner.

Amateur rider Peter Summers was speechless after passing the post unchallenged on rank outsider Catchin Time at Wincanton on Monday.

A delighted Summers could not believe it as he won unchallenged on the huge 125-1 outsider

Incredibly, the huge winner came after another 100-1 roughie triumphed at Fontwell on the same day – but only after furious punters claimed the race should have been voided.

Summers faced no such controversy over his win – and one lucky punter even managed to back his 13-year-old horse at monster odds.

The punter, who placed just a €1 each way bet, shared their winning slip online.

But speaking after the race, Summers, who was riding for trainer Laura Hurley, spoke of how he could not believe no one went past him.

He told Racing TV: “It means a huge amount to me and I’m just delighted for Laura and her team as well.

“I couldn’t believe it. I thought someone was coming. ‘This is too easy,’ I thought.

“I thought, ‘I’ve been doing this five or six years now and it’s never been this easy before’.

“I couldn’t stop looking over my shoulder. I was in disbelief and thinking, ‘something has to come now, something has to come now’ and nothing came.

“It’s an amazing feeling.”

This was Catchin Time’s first win in more than four years and came on the back of a 123-day break after finishing 32 lengths behind the winner in his last race.

The victory sealed a massive price double on the day after Michael Madgwick’s Big ‘n Better triumphed at 100-1.

The nine-year-old had been beaten by a cumulative 129 lengths in five prior runs but put that all behind him to beat the odds-on favourite.

However some punters could not believe the race went ahead after drama at the start.

Heavy favourite Drakes Well darted left just as the starter’s flag was lowered and impeded another runner.

One punter watching the action said: “The starter has had a shocker there, how’s he let that go?

“Awful start, whole race should have been voided.”
