Which places do each-way bets pay out on?

Three-quarters of all bets placed on the race are each-way bets and they're so popular because you're not actually betting on your horse to win outright. Instead, you're betting on it to finish among the top handful of places, the specific number of which are determined by the bookmakers

If you bet to win outright - or 'on the nose' - then it's all or nothing. You either win or you lose, if your horse comes anywhere other than first, you don't win a penny. However, if you bet each-way, you're actually making two bets with the bookie.

It's one bet that the horse will finish first and another that it will come in the determined number of places that the bookie pays out on. So, for example, if you bet £1 each-way, you've made two bets, which overall will cost you £2.

What does that meaning in terms of winnings? Well, if your horse wins at 12/1, and you put £1 on it to win outright, then you get your £12 returns plus your original £1 stake. However, if you backed it each way, then you'll get £12 returns plus your £1 stake.

In addition, if the bookies offer 1/4 the odds for a place, then you'll get another £3 plus your £1 stake. If your horse finishes placed but doesn't win, you'll just get your £3 returns and your £1 stake back.

Typically bookies tend to pay out on on at least the first four places for the Grand National. However given the larger field and the nature of the event many offer more as part of an extra places promotion. Here are what some of the major bookies are paying out this year:

  • Coral - Six places each way, 1/5 odds

  • Ladbrokes - Five places each way, 1/5 odds

  • Betfred - Seven places each way, 1/5 odds

  • Bet365 - Six places each way, 1/5 odds

  • Paddy Power - Six places each way, 1/5 odds
