It’s been estimated that somewhere between 500 and 600 million people watch the Grand National in over 140 countries around the world.
On Saturday 8th April 2017, up to 40 horses will race around two laps and 30 fences of Aintree race course at the end of which one will claim a place in the annals of horse racing history as the winner of the 170th running of the famous race.
In such a big field, picking the winner is no easy task for punters and finding an each-way selection isn’t much easier, with most bookies only paying out 1/4 odds a place 1,2,3,4.
One exception is Sky Bet, who will also pay out on each-way bets where your horse finishes fifth. That’s right, Sky Bet are offering 5-Place Each-Way terms on the 2017 Grand National.
A Grand National bet is even better when it’s a free bet and there will be plenty on offer as we get ever closer to the big day. Make sure you check in regularly for all the very latest offers as they become available.
