Golfer Lee Westwood is celebrating after scooping more than £48,000 on a multiple bet on day two of the Cheltenham Festival.

The 45-year-old staked £240 on seven selections in a Super Heinz on Wednesday, with City Island getting him off to a winning start at odds of 8-1 in the opening Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle.

He then picked out Topofthegame (4-1), Altior (4-11), Tiger Roll (5-4), Band Of Outlaws (11-2) and Envoi Allen (9-2), with only Killultagh Vic in the Coral Cup failing to hit the frame.
