The Grand National carries a purse of £1m and is the most valuable jump race in Europe. It's the most watched horse race of the year, with millions tuning in to see who the latest winner will be.
WHAT IS EACH WAY BETTING?Of course, many people betting on the Grand National aren’t seasoned punters and will first need to know what Each Way betting actually is.
Ultimately it’s a wager that will see you double your stake and place two bets rolled into one. One of the bets is on the horse you’re backing to win the race, the other being on the horse to place.
The number in which a horse can place, in many cases it will be for the horse to finish in the top three, although in many cases you may also find top five.
Should the horse win the race you’ll receive a payout on both the horse winning and placing, while if the horse places you would only receive a payout on it placing, with the winning segment of the Each Way bet losing. Naturally, if the horse doesn’t place, you lose the bet.
When betting on Each Way, you’ll be able to determine how much you win, which will usually be a set proportion of the odds, usually between ¼ and ⅕.
