Betfair who have taken the bet have offered a cash out of 275,000
What do you do?

Depends on how you define and process "regret" as an internal emotion.

Personally, cash out seems the less painful option. All of 275K is better than none of 511K....and for me the regret of losing it all would be more than the regret of losing the balance between the two figures.

But then that doesn't factor in the thrill of the chase. Or the heart-attack-inducing butterflies. Again - rather depends on how you deal with such things I suppose.

(I should have added I am not very good with the horses...to wit, if I had managed to back four in a row...I would cash out fairly safe in the knowledge there is no fooookin way 5 in a row of mine would come in!)

(and of course, on how much that amount of money would mean to you....if you are already a wealthy guy and the horses are just a bit of fun...then stay on... ....but if you are bored of queuing for lunch at the foodbank, p'raps better to cash out)

I would watch yesterday's Queen Mother Champion Chase (where the second fav was 9/1) for the next hour, then I'd phone BetFair with my bank details and say thanks very much.

Annoyingly I had both teams to score...which shows you how good I am at such things....

If you asked the nation I think 75% would cash out. Mostly because that amount of money Is life changing. I asked two people about your predicament and they both suggested cash out. I’m really torn though. The fact sky bet have offered money back if your horse finishes 2nd 3rd or 4th would suggest they’re praying people don’t keep lumping on the fav so stick to your guns!!! I should mention I’m very new to horse racing as a whole so far so ignore me!

He's come to an agreement with BetFair, if Envoi Allen wins he'll pocket £300.000 if EA loses he's settled for £250,000
