A mystery punter from Dunstable could be in line to become a millionaire this afternoon if the final horse in his sevenfold accumulator gallops to victory at Royal Ascot.

The man placed a £40 bet at the start of the week, and incredibly, all six selections so far have come in.

It means that his hopes of winning the £1 million payout rest on the shoulders of 8/1 shot 'Bound For Nowhere' in the Commonwealth Cup at 3.40pm.

The six winners so far:

  • Lady Aurelia 7/2
  • Barney Roy 5/2
  • Qemah 5/2
  • Highland Reel 11/4
  • Coronet 7/1
  • Big Orange 8/1

The odds may be against him pulling off the incredible win though, with 'Bound For Nowhere' having to overcome the overwhelming favourite 'Caravaggio'.

This punter has made incredible predictions already and today his hopes of becoming a millionaire all comes down to one horse, Bound To Nowhere.

After making such amazing predictions so far, we can only wish him the best of luck.
