PETER O'SULLEVAN and CLIVE GRAHAM
Reporter JULIAN WILSON who says, 'All 31 Roll-Up races will be shown " live " on TV, with dividends announced the following Tuesday. If no all-correct entry comes through, the bulk of the pool " rolls up " to a colossal must-be-won pool oh the third Saturday, although consolation prizes of 30 per cent are paid each week. It could all add up to a £250,000 pay-out to some inspired clairvoyant.'
