Bravery saves bookies 20 million pound payout on Ryan Moore four-timer at Doncaster

Ryan Moore can within a nose of winning the first four races at Doncaster.

British bookmakers narrowly avoided losses of over £20 million when 20/1 shot Bravery pipped the Ryan Moore ridden 7/2 favourite, Oh This Is Us, in the Lincoln and prevented the jockey landing what would have been a 2591/1 four-timer.


Coral alone faced losses of over £3 million, and estimated the total losses for all British bookmakers would have approached £20 million, had Moore got Oh This Is Us home in front.

“Ryan Moore’s 575/1 treble made it a very bad day for bookmakers but make no mistake a victory for Oh This Is Us would have turned a bad day into one of the worst racing days ever in betting history,” said Simon Clare, Coral Spokesman.

“This was very much a traditional betting shop drama with thousands of small stakes recreational Saturday punters putting Lucky 15s, Yankees, and multiples on the TV mounts of the punters’ most popular jockey, Ryan Moore. As it is these Ryan Moore backers have had a very good day indeed but just missed out on a massive pay-day in the last few strides of the Lincoln,” said Clare.

“Britain’s bookies will be toasting Bravery long into the night, but we weren’t feeling brave during that last furlong, in fact we were panicking as Ryan Moore hit the front on Oh This Is Us. Paying out many millions of pounds would have been the worst way possible to go into Grand National week. That was possibly the most valuable photograph in betting history”, concluded Clare.
