    Grand National tomorrow :)

    I was thinking of having a bit of a flutter after a decent return on the fulham game last nite Anyone else putting something down and who you looking at betting on? I was thinkin of going for Comply or Die but not looking to put down much. Also can someone tell me what an "each way" bet is?

    - Palypso De Creek

    Guide for those not sure on each way bets, taken from www.grand-national-guide.co.uk

    Grand National Each Way Betting Example

    An Each Way (EW) bet is essentially 2 bets: A win bet AND a place bet.

    So a £10EW bet is actually a £20 bet - £10 win and £10 place.

    The odds you get on the win are the same as the quoted odds, but the odds you get on the place are lower, usually 1/4 of the quoted odds for the Grand National.

    So lets say you bet £10EW (a £20 bet) on a horse at 20-1 with place terms of 1/4 1,2,3,4 . Lets look at the two bets separately.

    The Win £10 will pay £10 x 20 + £10 stake back = £210 if the horse wins, but nothing if it doesn't win.

    The Place £10 will pay £10 x 20 x 1/4 + £10 stake back = £60 if the horse finishes 1,2,3 or 4 (or however many places your grand national bookmaker is paying).

    So in combination your £20 bet will pay £210 + £60 (both parts of the bet) if the horse wins but just £60 if it finished 2nd, 3rd, or 4th. There's no difference in payout between any of these places. (ie. you get no more for it finishing 2nd than you do for finishing 4th)

    I think I have gone slightly overboard

    Ive got Irish Raptor on the sweepstake at work
    £10 on Tricky Trickster at 16-1 (picked off the name only - no idea what the chances are of it winning)
    £5EW on Comply or Die

    hopefully im gonna win something as in the last 4 years ive won 3 times
