How to bet on the 2021 Grand National
Betting on the Grand National is relatively simple, however it is worth bearing in mind that when you register a new betting account with a bookmaker you will be offered a welcome free bet to use on the Grand National. All of the UK bookmakers offer odds on the famous steeplechase and you will often find winners coming in at big prices, sometimes as much as 100/1.
The 2021 Grand National will involve 40 runners and as such you will generally find some healthy prices on runners which may have performed well at other recent races. Indeed picking a winner on the Grand National can seem like a daunting task, however remember that you can back as many runners as you want in your bid to back a winner.
The most popular bet on the Grand National is ‘win only’ where you back a single horse simply to win the race, however many punters prefer an ‘each-way’ bet whereupon you can enjoy a winning return should your choice of runner finish within the specified frame, generally the first five or six finishers.
Many bookmakers offer different place terms on the Grand National and it is worth doing some research on which operators offer most places, many bookies paying out on six which is an excellent concession for punters.
New customers can also take advantage of a welcome bonus of some description when registering with a bookmaker and these can vary from a free bet or a matched deposit bonus. Remember that you will generally be required to place an initial bet before releasing any bonus funds and always ensure that you read all the terms and conditions carefully.
How to choose a winner at the Grand National
There’s no foolproof way to pick a winner in any race, however it does pay to do some research before parting with your hard-earned cash. Look at the jockey and see how he or she has been performing in recent races, similarly it is a good idea to look at the trainer and consider the form of his stables. Most importantly, look at the horse’s form of late and study whether they perform well at the course or over the distance. Also make sure that your choice is suited to the conditions on the day of the race – you can find details of these factors in the racecard or with the online bookmaker.
