One nervous punter could see himself taking home over £1 million from a stake of just £5 at the Cheltenham Festival.

A betslip shared by the Sun shows details of a seven-race punt with the potential to land £1,151,851.74, with five of the races already won.

While the authenticity of the slip, which has been shared via an image of the accumulator on a phone screen, is not known, the bet could be won by Friday.

They will need Shishkin to win in Thursday’s 2:50 Ryanair Chase, and Galopin Des Champs to take Friday’s Gold Cup.

Shiskin looks a strong choice, with Paddy Power naming the Nico de Boinville-ridden horse as 10/11 favourite.

Five of the seven races have already come in, but the punter will need Galopin Des Champs to win Friday’s Gold Cup

Galopin Des Champs is also down as 7/4 favourite for the Gold Cup.

It has already been a remarkable set of results for the punter. The first win came on day one, as Rachael Blackmore won an emotional race on Honeysuckle in the Close Brothers Mares’ Hurdle.

There was then a dramatic victory for Gaillard Du Mesnil, as Mahler Mission fell from a winning position to give the race away in the National Hunt Chase.

Langer Dan then won the Coral Cup on Wednesday, before wins from Energumene and Delta Work made it five from five.

If the bet does come in, it will follow Brighton & Hove Albion owner Tony Bloom’s bet on Wednesday that earned him one of the biggest wins in Cheltenham history.

Brighton & Hove Albion owner Tony Bloom has already picked up one of the biggest wins in Cheltenham history

Bloom left the course more than £1m better off after his Willie Mullins-trained gelding Energumene landed the Queen Mother Champion Chase for the second year running.

Just over £225,000 of that was the first prize Paul Townend’s mount earned for beating Captain Guinness 10 lengths.

Initially Bloom, an acclaimed gambler behind sports data specialists Starlizard, admitted he’d ‘had a few quid’ on his horse. 

He later revealed placing two bets which together totalled £600,000 with Brighton-based bookmaker Star Sport, winning him £830,000.
