Saturday 14th April 2018 will see the most popular jumps race on the calendar take place. At least 25% of UK adults are expected to have a flutter. There are also some top picks ready to take their place on the starting line. But of the 40 runners who start the race, it’s expected that around only 60% will finish.

So, how can you bag yourself a profit?

Matched betting tips and techniques for the Grand National

Each way betting

This popular form of bet is where your stake is divided into two separate bets: on the horse to ‘win’ or ‘place’. The ‘place’ can vary, but usually means your horse finishes in one of the top three positions. However, in a field as big as the Grand National, extra places may be extended to the first 4, 5 or 6 horses past the post.
