Saturday's Scoop6 races have been unveiled and prospective punters will need to study form at Newbury, Newmarket and Thirsk in order to grab their share of what the promoters are describing as a record breaking pool.

The bet, which has not been won since March, rolled over again last Saturday when Ballyglasheen posted a surprise victory in the Swinton Hurdle.

The six legs were revealed on Friday morning and will be as follows:

Leg 1: 1.45 Newmarket

Leg 2: 2.40 Newbury

Leg 3: 2.55 Newmarket

Leg 4: 3.25 Thirsk

Leg 5: 3.30 Newmarket

Leg 6: 4.00 Thirsk

The sixth leg was originally not to be shown on Saturday's Channel 4 Racing but following discussions with the broadcaster, it is understood that the programme will stay on air to cover the 14-runnner Marion Gibson Brown Memorial Handicap at Thirsk should any tickets remain.

totepool spokesman Andrew Griffiths said: "The Scoop6 has produced extraordinary drama week after week and we're braced for more excitement tomorrow.

"It's the bet everyone is talking about and we're expecting a betting bonanza as punters set their sights on the monster £10m pot.

"The puzzle we've set appears slightly more straightforward than recent weeks and we have our fingers crossed we can finally find a winner."

Betfred boss Fred Done added: "I would like to thank Carl Hicks and his team at Channel 4 for agreeing to show the 4.00 from Thirsk live if the Scoop6 is still going.

"Carl Hicks has really pulled some strings and it's great that this possible life changing race is now live on terrestrial TV.

"I can't wait to watch the Channel 4 coverage, it's great for racing, and I hope on Saturday afternoon we are creating millionaires."
