OCTOPUS PAUL’S MAGNIFICENT SEVEN IS 200/1 HEADACHE FOR BOOKIES
PUNTERS WHO HAVE backed all of Paul the Octopus’s SEVEN successive winners are now just under £100 better off if they have staked £10 on each of his selections, and £2000 better off if they have reinvested their winnings on the next selection every time, say bookmakers William Hill – and if Spain win the Final, as also predicted by Paul, those profits will increase to just over £100 and to £3000 respectively.
‘Even Frankie Dettori only managed seven straight winners in what is recognised as the best ever feat of jockeyship when he rode all seven winners at Ascot in 1996 – Paul could put that winning streak to shame’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe, ‘If Spain win tomorrow we can only hope he never predivts another result until at least 2014 when the next World Cup takes place’
