Types of Grand National Bets

The most common bet. Bet on the winner of a race.

A bet of two halves, half your stake goes on the horse to win, the other half goes on the horse to place. You’ll get some sort of return if your horse wins or places. Often costs double that of a standard ‘outright’ bet.

Multiples
Doubles, Trebles, Accumulators and full cover bets such as patents, Lucky 15s, Yankees and Union Jacks are a good way to win big returns for small stakes.

Forecasts
Correctly betting on the 2 horses to finish first and second. Must finish in correct order to win.

Reverse Forecast
Betting on 2 horses to finish 1st and 2nd, they can finish in any order to win.
