The defeat of French ‘good things’ has made recreational gambler Gareth Timms trash his kitchen, living room and betting studio before midday.

Timms said: “The defeat of Victor Ludorum by 28-1 outsider, The Summit, made me forget the excitement I’ve felt for the return to French racing in an instant.

“I’d bought a beret, put up posters of Soumillon and hung Tricolore flags in anticipation. But all that quickly vanished when the results came in 9-1, 15-2, 8-1, 16-1 and 28-1.

“I’ve been like a cat on hot bricks all week but after two hours and four beaten favourites I was instantly reminded of why I hate this sport so much.

Gareth’s wife Shirley Timms said: “Gareth’s gone nine weeks without smashing up the house, getting violently angry or stealing money for bets.

“It’s good to see him back to normal”
