One racing punter landed the Balmoral tricast while another bagged all five winners in a Lucky 31 as we round up some of the big weekend winners.
Aimee from the Wirral was among the big weekend winners with Sky Bet, her 30p Lucky 31 collecting over £2,700.
Five selections - three at Ffos Las and two at Leopardstown - made up the audacious wager, with a total stake of just £9.30.
First to go was Arctus in Ireland, a winner at 8/1, before Candy Burg made it two from two with an 11/4 success in Wales.
When Silver Streak (3/1) won the Welsh Champion Hurdle, it was down to two quickfire selections to complete the bet and both obliged, Perfect Tapatino (100/30) winning the 5.25 Leopardstown before Encore Champs (4/1) took the 5.30 at Ffos Las.
All told, that made for a return of £2733.78 and it was far from the only example of a small-staking punter winning big on a quality weekend's racing.
Phillip casts a spell
Ascot was the focus on Saturday and Phillip of Cheltenham took time out from preparing for The Showcase by cracking the Balmoral Handicap which brought the curtain down on Champions Day.
Phillip permed four horses in combination tricasts and as Sharja Bridge burst to the front to beat Escobar and Mjjack, he won £1506.49.
Another punter also scored at Ascot, winning over £1,000 thanks to Sands Of Mali (28/1), Sharja Bridge (10/1) and Wolverhampton scorer Turanga Leela (9/1), which he'd placed in combination trebles to a unit stake of 35p each-way.
Two other selections were unplaced, but three winners meant for a total of £1034.17 from just £7 staked.
Frances of Alexandria
Finally, the lights of Wolverhampton provided the stage for a return of £2106 for the wonderfully named Frances of Alexandria (Scotland, not Egypt), who went for a £2 win treble on Turanga Leela (8/1), Batholomeu Dias (8/1) and Udogo (12/1).
On the tipping front, Sporting Life's Value Bet guru Ben Linfoot made it a profitable afternoon for his followers when 15/2 Magical won the Fillies & Mares.
Switching to football, one customer picked up in excess of £2,800 thanks to a £20 15-fold across Sky Bet's total goals markets, with all selections under the spread.
Most were under 2.5 but Nottingham Forest's game against Norwich was a notable exception and a wise one, the visitors winning 2-1 thanks to a Timm Klose brace.
Another punter won almost £5,000 from just 50 pence, with Brighton and Watford among their winning selections, while a £5 eight-fold on a collection of Scottish sides netted one customer £2015.
