Get details of the big weekend winners with Sky Bet, including Mrs Hanson (see: headline) from Sheffield and an on-the-money Lucky 31.

Mmm chop!

Whether or not Mrs Hanson from Sheffield is mother to Tulsa's finest trio, she's got plenty of cause for celebration heading towards Christmas after five winners in a Sunday Lucky 31.

The cosmopolitan countess started off at the Vaal, added simultaneous races at Chantilly and Newcastle, stopped by at Warwick and finished the job at Tramore, where Rocky's Silver turned £18.60 into gold.

Winners at 4/1, 7/2, 9/4, 6/1 and 11/4 meant that in little more than 20 minutes of racing, Mrs H grabbed herself the thick end of £4,000 and rather than file her under the 'lucky' category, we're going to take the view that it just so happens she fancied five horses on Sunday and they all ran at basically the same time.

Mmm chop complete, it's time to Mmm shop. And it's also time for us to Mmm stop.

Mr White gets it right

In the 1992 classic, Reservoir Dogs, Mr White is, among other things, an absolute judge.

And so, evidently, is namesake Mr White from Liverpool, whose decision to cash out an audacious £10 roll-up on four competitive Friday races after the first three had won proved inspired.

In went Aaron Lad, an impressive winner at Cheltenham. In went Soar Above, securing a hat-trick at Kempton. In went Reeth, defying market weakness to make all.

Three down, one to go, and a potential payout of around £15,000 if Midnight Vixen could land a few morning wagers in an extremely weak Kempton maiden.

Perhaps it was the money for newcomer Havana Jane which put Mr White off. Perhaps he'd just dropped £2636.27 on the Christmas shopping and thought a cashout offer of that exact sum was some kind of sign.

Whatever the case, this Mr White ends the weekend not just a judge, but a winner.

And as for Mr Gray...

There was no Mr Gray in Reservoir Dogs. If there had been, the character would have been a punter - the sort of punter who looks at a competitive Cheltenham card and sees only opportunity.

Mr Gray, from that London, selected Frodon, Rockpoint, Brain Power and Sensulano for his 50p each-way Lucky 15, and after the last of those four had crossed the line in front his refreshed balance had gone up by £4190.58.

Mr Gibson, meanwhile, selected the very same horses - only this time staking a total of £15 courtesy of a £1, win-only Lucky 15 - while Mr Turner, from Windsor, had three of them plus winners at Doncaster and Fairyhouse for a brilliant Lucky 31.

In fact Mr Turner was the biggest winner of the lot on Saturday, with O O Seven and Brosna George helping him to £10,566.80 from a 50p Lucky 31.

The beast from the east

Finally, football, and a remarkable tale from East Grinstead where - for the second time this month - a Sky Bet customer named Richard has struck gold.

Having bagged a winning 14-fold at the start of December, this time Richard went for a showboating 20-fold, staking £20, and returned £77,864 when they all did the business.

Among his winners were Spurs, the shortest-priced selection involved and set to cause heartbreak until Christian Eriksen's stoppage-time winner against Burnley.

When your luck is in, your luck is in. And with another £75,000 and change in the bank, Richard can just about begin browsing the property market of an "ancient market town (which) has a wealth of architectural heritage and is surrounded by some of the finest countryside."

Last but my no means least, to Cedric. No, not Cyril Sneer's only son in kids' TV classic The Raccoons, but a man from the midlands; an ordinary person with an extraordinary bet.

Yes, our friend turned £1 into £62,019.10 when his 17-fold on 'to score 2+ goals' selections came in late on Sunday evening.

The final episode of The Raccoons is called 'Going For Gold'. Job done, says Cedric.
