1/4 odds versus 1/5 odds
Aside from the number of each-way places that bookmakers offer for the Irish Grand National, they also state the calculation determining what proportion of the odds you'll get returned if your horses finishes in the each-way paying places. Some bookmakers offer 1/4 odds; others offer 1/5 odds - in a situation where you're getting the same number of each way places, 1/4 odds pays 25% more than 1/5 odds in terms of the return you'll receive from an each way place - so in general 1/4 odds is the best option. However, some bookmakers offer you an additional place for taking the 1/5 odds which then creates an interesting dilemma! The choice as a punter is yours of course, do you trade the reduced return for an extra place? There's no right or wrong answer here as both sides can be argued.
The Boylesports sponsored Irish Grand National headlines the Fairyhouse Easter Festival which takes place across Easter each year. This Handicap Chase, run over a stretching 3 miles, 5 furlongs and 24 fences, is always popular with the leading lights of Irish racing and punters alike. The Easter Monday fixture regularly attracts race fans from Dublin and it's become known as the 'Dubs' Day Out. With fields of up to 29 runners in recent years, online bookmakers are always happy to give punters real value in this race, especially as it's one of the handicap highlights of the Irish National Hunt season, so expect 5 places and potentially even 6 places each way on the Irish Grand National.
The Boylesports Irish Grand National has its own mystique in National Hunt folklore. The highlight of the Fairyhouse Easter Festival, which saw A.P.McCoy's final competitive rides in 2015, a crowd of 30,000 is always guaranteed for one of Ireland's biggest meetings. Run over 3 miles and 5 furlongs over 24 fences, the Irish Grand National has been won twice by both A.P. McCoy and Ruby Walsh. Recent years have seen hugely popular triumphs for female riders Nina Carberry (2011) and Katie Walsh (2015) riding Organisedconfusion and Thunder And Roses respectively. It's also true that neither Willie Mullins or Gordon Elliott have trained the winner until this point.
With anything up to 29 runners across recent renewals, online bookmakers pay out the standard 4 places each way at 1/4 odds for this handicap chase. However with the Irish Grand National being one of the biggest sporting events of the year in the Republic of Ireland, a growing number of bookmakers over recent seasons have promoted an additional place with 5 places each way. However 2017 could see this change as the competitive nature of the online bookmaker industry would make any field of up to 30 runners rife for 6 places each way. Naturally 5 places covers circa 17% of the field - and any bookmaker offering 6 places will take this to 20% of the field - a situation which can only drive your chances of success and profit in the race.
We track the value dished out by online bookmakers across the major National Hunt races. Extended each way terms gives punters a huge boost in terms of profit potential and is the perfect promotion for those who love to back big priced long shots. With some High Street bookmakers still categorically giving their customers the standard each way terms, savvy online punters have been using online bookmakers who have been offering far better value to their customers now for years. The 2016 renewal of the Irish Grand National saw all online bookmakers bar William hill go 5 places each way at full 1/4 odds. It's likely that 6 places each way will be offered for the first time in 2017.
