300-1 shot He Knows No Fear makes horse racing history at Leopardstown

He Knows No Fear caused the biggest upset in British and Irish racing history when springing a record 300-1 shock at Leopardstown.

The Betfair starting price for the colt — trained by Luke Comer — was an eye-watering 1000-1, but his industry SP of 300-1 meant he usurped the victory of 250-1 shot Equinoctial, successful at Kelso in 1990, to become the biggest-priced winner either side of the Irish Sea.

William Hill took 86 bets on the winner, the biggest of which returned £5,400. Ridden by Chris Hayes, the outsider finished with a terrific rattle to overhaul favourite Agitare late on in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden and create history.

 Coral’s John Hill said ‘The previous record came over jumps. This was on the Flat, which makes it even more surprising.’
