RACING commentator Derek Thompson entertained the punters at Betfred in Bury St Edmunds on Friday and backed a winner to boost a charity’s coffers.

Betfred gave the Bury Free Press £100 of charity bets – if we lost we would get the money back while if we won the bookies would hand over the winnings.

And Tommo, tipped us £50 on Kauto Star to win the St George VI Chase at Kempton on Saturday, and £25 each way on Long Run – the latter came in first at 9-2 giving us £190 plus the £50 back that we lost on Kauto Star. The money will be handed over to St Nicholas Hospice Care.

“I opened this branch five nearly years ago and I love coming down and meeting these characters,” said Tommo.
