Place Bet

In a place bet, you have a large target for your chosen horse. If you bet on a horse to place, you are betting that they will finish first, second, or even third. Gold, silver, or bronze will do in this case.

Each Way

If you are having trouble making up your mind, an each way bet may be just what you need for this year’s Grand National. You are basically placing an outright and a place bet. If your horse finishes second or third, you collect just the place bet. However, if they finish first, you get to cash in on both.


A quinella is a tough bet. You have to bet on two horses, and they both have to be correct. However, it comes with a bit of wiggle room. While you are betting on the top two horses, they can finish in any order, as long as they are the top two.


An exacta bet, in addition to having a name that sounds like a super hero, is one tough bet. It combines an outright with a quinella. That is to say that you have to guess the winner and the runner up, and in the correct order. None of the wiggle room from the quinella. However, as this is such a tough bet, it typically comes with a handsome payout reward.

Grand National Betting Strategy

Whether this is your first dive into Grand National betting, or if you have been at it for years, it is always a good time to iron out the details of your Grand National betting strategy. With so much excitement surrounding the event, the clearer your strategy is going in, the more level-headed you will be when it comes time to make decisions.

And plus, the Grand National is no ordinary race. You should absolutely be applying your general betting strategy to this race. However, there are many things you should keep in mind specific to this race.

It is a very long race, so make sure any horse you bet on has strong endurance. A horse may be better at sprints or at these longer races. Another thing to keep in mind is that this race is full of obstacles, and big ones!

With 30 fences to jump over, these horses really need to have this down pat. These jumps are so dangerous for star horses that even individual obstacles have earned their own name and specific analysis. Make sure to look into these. They include: The Chair, Becher’s Brok, and the Canal Turn.
