Boost Your Grand National Odds With Enhanced Place Terms
One of the best offers available for your Grand National betting is when one or two bookies offer ‘enhanced place terms.’ This is when they pay out your each-way bet on more places than usual.
For instance the usual terms for the place part of your each-way bet are 1/4 odds 1,2,3,4. But this year one or two bookies may be offering extended places down to 6th place. That means if you horse comes 6th and you had a bet each-way then you still win the place part of your wager.
The reason a bookmaker offers this bonus is to get you to sign with them rather than with their rival. It is actually a really good deal for the punter and it is our favourite Grand National special offer.
If you are a little confused by what we have written then read the next section for a detailed explanation of each-way Grand National betting.
Grand National Each-Way Betting Explained
An each-way bet is two bets: one bet to win and one bet to place. Imagine you have £10 each-way on a 20/1 horse. then you have actually placed a tenner to win and a tenner to place.
If the horse won the Grand National then the win part of the bet would pay you £200 profit and you would get your £10 stake back = £210 returned.
Assuming the place terms are the normal 1/4th odds 1,2,3,4 then your place bet would pay out at 5/1 (1/4th of 20/1).
So if your horse came anywhere in the first four you would get £60 returned to you for that part of the bet (ie: £10 at 5/1 and then your £10 place bet stake returned as well).
So the total amount returned to you on that 20/1 winner for your £10ew bet would be £270. That is £210 for the win bet and £60 for the place.
Now you can see the value of betting each-way with a firm that offers better place terms than normal.
If they offer ‘1/4 odds 1,2,3,4,5,6’ then that means if your fancy comes 6th then you will still get paid for the place portion of your wager. With other bookies not offering those terms you would lose.
We believe enhanced place terms are a better deal when you are betting on the big race than chasing after sign-up bonuses, though at good firms like Bet365 bookie, you can get both.
Take a look at the Grand National betting odds table above. At the top of it we list all available special place terms for each-way bets. There tend to be more of them the closer you get to the actual race day.
About The Grand National
The Grand National horse race is run annually on the first Saturday in April at Aintree racecourse, Liverpool. It is the ultimate test of the thoroughbred. The near four and a half mile course includes 30 daunting steeplechase fences.
This year the race is on Saturday April 2 and it is the last chance you will have to see Tony McCoy ride over the famous Aintree fences. The 19-times champion jockey is retiring this year but if he wins the big race on Saturday he has indicated that he will likely retire there and then. If you believe the odds then he has a huge chance as he rides the favourite Shutthefrontdoor for owner JP McManus and trainer Jonjo O’Neill.
You can discover the patterns that emerge at Aintree using our unique trends section, where we analyse the stats and recurring tendencies of past Grand Nationals in order to find future winners. Catch up with the latest Aintree news and discover the big-race free bets and special offers from the online bookies.
In addition we review past races, which are always interesting to revisit and the analysis itself also provides pointers as to what it takes to land the great race. Below we have a guide to the main players in this year’s Aintree showpiece event.
