The Scoop6 bonus hunter missed out on almost £500,000 on Saturday as his selection could finish only third.

The bonus pool is now worth more than £500,000

Having picked Alfie Spinner to win the bonus race - the United House Gold Cup Handicap Chase at Ascot - the anonymous Betfred punter failed to land an extra £485,474 to the £191,211 he won last weekend.

Roberto Goldback claimed the victory with Alfie Spinner rarely looking likely to win the contest.

The bonus fund has not been won since July and is now over £500,000.

The win fund also rolled over after French Navy won the Betfred Ben Marshall Stakes.

A total of £158,298 was bet into the pool.

There were 198 winners of the place fund which paid £159.80.
