A guide to the bookmakers offering additional each way places at sport's biggest events.
Glorious Goodwood is always a highlight of the flat racing season with online bookmakers offering extended 4 places and even 5 places each way on selected races across 5 days of top-level racing. Set in the beautiful Sussex countryside, the Qatar Goodwood Festival is a social and betting highlight with way over 100,000 spectators attending. Punters love to search for value during Goodwood and the online bookmakers oblige with extended places available across the biggest races and handicaps. Each way betting has always been hugely popular - after all selecting outsiders to place at huge odds can be particularly profitable and great fun when your longshot finishes in the paying positions.
Extra each way places are offered at Glorious Goodwood year after year. A key strategy of the biggest brands in the sportsbook industry is to offer horse racing punters increased value at the big racing festivals and Glorious Goodwood is no different, so don't be fooled into thinking you need to stick with the industry-standard 3 places each way or 4 places each way for races with more than 16 runners.
From a value-hunting perspective, the Betfred Mile or Golden Mile as it's known to the race industry, is a handicap that is always packed with runners and value. Expect plenty of bookmakers to go 5 places each way in 2017.
