Placing A Bet on The National

If you're having an each-way bet look out for bookmakers who are paying out on additional finishing positions

Normally In a handicap race of 16 runners or more bookmakers will payout each-way bets on the first 4 finishers. However for the Grand National many of the bookmakers will be paying out on additional places. The best of these is BetVictor who are paying out on the first 6 places, others will be paying out on the first 5. see our list on the righthand column of the page. It therefore makes sense to place your each-way bets with BetVictor, unless one of the other bookmakers is offering much better odds on the horse you want to back. Lets face it, you'd be pretty gutted if your horse finishes either 5th or 6th and your bookmaker only pays out the first 4.

Take advantage of a free bet

The majority of bookmakers withdraw their Free Bet offers for the day of the Grand National, so either get your bet on early or look for a bookmaker who is still offering a free bet. Again BetVictor comes up trumps here, they'll match the value of your first bet, with a free bet up to a maximum of £25.

See our Bookmaker Free Bet Offers page for other free bet offers.

Get the best odds on your bets

When placing your bet on the Grand National make sure you do so with one of the bookmakers who offer Best Odds Guaranteed. On the day of the Grand National, take the price on offer and if the SP is greater they'll pay you out at the bigger price. Note that BOG prices will only count for bets placed on the day of the National.
