Westwood staked £240 on the races and returned over £48,200, writing on Instagram - 'Boom I love @betfair'.

He was at the festival with his girlfriend and caddie Helen Storey once again, with Westy describing Cheltenham as 'Christmas in March'.

The 45-year-old backed every single winning horse on day one of the Cheltenham Festival last year to pocket around £22k.

He told BBC Radio 5 Live at the time, “I put £128 on the tote [totejackpot] and it paid just under £22,000.”
