1/4 odds versus 1/5 odds
Aside from the number of each-way places that bookmakers offer for the 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 Coral sponsored Scottish Grand National headlines the Scottish National Hunt Festival which takes place in April. This Grade 3 Handicap Chase, run over a stretching 4 miles and 27 fences, is always popular with owners and punters alike. With a £215,000 prize fund, this is by far the richest race in Scotland and the most popular with a sell-out 16,000 in attendance. The bookmakers are always happy to give punters real value in this race, especially as it's one of the handicap highlights of the National Hunt season, so expect 6 places and potentially even 7 places each way on the Scottish Grand National this year.
The Coral Scottish Grand National has its own mystique in the National Hunt folklore. Ayr Racecourse on the Scottish west coast is surrounded by Open Championship courses such as Troon and Turnberry, but this relatively flat course provides the backdrop for Scotland's Number 1 horse race. Run over 4 sapping miles and 27 fences, the Scottish National has seen some top-class winners. Only one horse - the legendary Red Rum - has won both the Grand National and Scottish Grand National in the same year, namely 1974. Little Polveir and Earth Summit have also won both Nationals. 2016 saw Paul Nicholls train his first Scottish National winner in 19 years, with Vicente winning under Sam Twiston-Davies. 2018 saw Rebecca Curtis trained Joe Farrell win at a massive 33/1 with Adam Wedge taking the ride.
With anything up to 30 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 Scottish Grand National being one of the biggest sporting events of the year in Scotland, a growing number of bookmakers over recent seasons have promoted an additional place with 5 and 6 places each way often available. However 2018 saw race sponsor Coral go a record breaking 7 places each way at 1/5 odds for the very first time ever. We can expect more of the same in 2019 - once any extended terms are confirmed we'll detail them on this page.
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. 2018 saw a step-change in the each-way places offered with Coral offering a best ever 7 places each-way at a 1/5 odds and a further 4 online bookmakers offering 6 places each way at 1/5.
