Money, money money, must be funny, in the rich man's world; Well, there'll be plenty of cash around if you take the 250-1 about Pricewise releasing a cover of Abba's hit.
WITH ten consecutive winning Saturdays already in the bag, Pricewise is just 2-1 with Paddy Power to extend his incredible sequence this weekend, writes Seb Vance. Tom Segal began his run back on June 25 with Sergeant Cecil, advised at 20-1 for the Northumberland Plate, and had the bookies pleading for mercy when Tax Free brought up the perfect ten last Saturday.
The Irish bookmaker is taking no chances on Segal dishing out more punishment for the layers, but have offered some bigger odds about just how far the man who can do no wrong can go.
Spokesman Paddy Power said: "His peerless Pricewise column has become gospel for Saturday punters, and there seems to be nothing that he can't do."
Clearly, the bookmaker feels there is no limit to his talents, having issued prices on the Racing Post's star tipster becoming a game-show host, a pop star, a Chelsea player, or even representing England in the all-important fifth Ashes Test.
"If John Madejski came in for me, then I would sign up tomorrow, but you would never see me in a Chelsea shirt," said Reading fan Segal.
