Neil Morrice, 54, placed the £10 bet with Coral way back in 1998, taking odds of 1000-1 that the then eight-year-old would win snooker’s biggest prize before 2020.

On Monday he came close to collecting with nine years to spare before Trump lost 18-15 to Higgins.

Coral spokesman David Stevens said: “Neil first saw Judd Trump in action when his 12-year-old son played a frame against him and at the time he was so young he needed to stand on a box to reach the table.

“Having spotted his star potential so early he was quick to place his bet at 1000-1. His foresight almost paid off this weekend but although we’ve escaped the payout this year both Neil and Judd have time on their side."

I just heard the Coral spokesman on Talksports radio talking about this bet .
I had Talksports Radio on early Monday morning , each show has their Da' Bookie spokesman so the Coral's spokesman mentioned this bet on the ealy morning show and I thought , yeah I remember posting that bet back in the 2011 Final , googled it and this was the last chance for the bet to come up .

BBC showed the move The Eagle Has Landed before the Snooker started , Judd was 12-5 up , that's a sign that the Dude's bet is coming up I thought .

World Snooker Championship: Punter wins £10,000 after placing bet on eight-year-old Judd Trump :

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/snooker/48185391

Quote .

" A punter has landed a windfall after backing Judd Trump at 1,000-1 to be world snooker champion when he was aged eight - 21 years ago.

Trump's 18-9 victory over John Higgins in the Crucible final netted horse racing journalist Neil Morrice £10,000.

The 62-year-old placed a £10 bet with bookmaker Coral in 1998 after spotting Trump's talent at a snooker club near Bristol with his son.

"Judd looked something special even as an eight-year-old," said Morrice.

"So I've been following his career closely from the start."

He was running out of time as the wager specifically stated Trump - beaten by Higgins in the 2011 final - had to win the title before 2020 before his 30th birthday.

Morrice saw the young Trump in action at the Keynsham Snooker Club.

"Eight years ago, I thought I might win my bet, it was John Higgins who stood in Judd's way then, so I was hoping for a different outcome this year, and thankfully there was," added Morrice.

"I guess I'll have to back him again next year, although of course I won't be getting odds of 1,000-1."

Trump is rated a 3-1 shot to win the championship again next year.

Coral spokesman David Stevens said: "Neil first saw Judd Trump in action when his 12-year-old son played a frame against him, and at the time he was so young he needed to stand on a box to reach the table.

"Having spotted his star potential so early, he was quick to place his bet at 1,000-1 that Judd would win the World Championship before his 30th birthday.

"His foresight almost paid off in 2011, but thanks to John Higgins we escaped the payout that year, but there was a different and much happier outcome this year."

You might know it turns out Neil Morrice is a Horse Racing journalist but what a spot , what a bet , he must've kept that betting slip in a bank vault for 21 years , his ship almost came in in 2011 but maybe Judd Trump had to rethink his game to include a better safety strategy .

It's every punters dream to get a huge return for a small stake so well done Neil Morrice the drinks are on you lol !

Once upon a time that was indeed the dream Final but I can't see it happening now .

Ronnie O'Sullivan's attitude stinks sometimes like at this years Finals , playing an amateur in James Cahill but couldn't be bothered .

If you follow Ronnie O'Sullivan's Fan Facebook pages they have a bad habit of calling John Higgins a match fixing cheat and hatred of Judd Trump .

Ronnie O'Sullivan Fan Facebook pages vanished when James Cahill knocked him out .

If you like the flair players potting balls off the lampshades you might well have seen a new dream Final barring miscues etc in the 1st round this year.....

Judd Trump: Doubters gave me fire to succeed, says world champion :

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/snooker/48189711

I don't know who writes the Snooker script's for the BBC but no way way that The greatest Crucible Final , once Judd streaked into a 12-5 lead there was only going to be one winner , high class quality but John's race was ran after the David Gilbert match , have you ever seen two players so emotional after match interviews as Higgins V Gilbert ?

I say well played John Higgins from thinking about packing it in to making another World Final and pledging every century breaks made to the Celtic foundation and knocking in the highest break of 143 well played but I guess when the Ronnie O'Sullivan Facebook Fan pages start posts again it will be the same old posts about you and Judd Trump , some people just don't appreciate what it takes to be a champion , just pick a FAV in every race but that's not how to win land don't I just know lol !.

The battle of the tipsters , well The Sporting Life's 'Tricky Dicky' was his usuall hapless hack so I give it to Snookerbacker who must be licking his wounds at how his 190/1 selection David Gilbert went out .

Brilliant tournament as always and great fun as ever . Post more if I find it .

Congratulations and well played Judd Trump !
