What Grand National Betting Markets are Available at Betfair?

Those who place bets on the Grand National often use two common markets to do so. The first is to place a win bet, and as the name suggests your horse has to win the race for you to receive a return. This is one simple bet, which costs one unit stake and is the easiest and simplest way to get involved with the Grand National with Betfair. The second way to bet is to back each way, this costs double the price of a win bet, because you are betting on your horse to both win and place. You get a return if your horse places here which is what makes it popular with punters.

Aside from the main two betting markets you can get involved with the Grand National in many other ways. One very difficult thing to predict but something that can be hugely rewarding is a forecast or tricast bet. These involve picking the first and second for a forecast and the first, second and third for a tricast. This is very difficult to do but for just a small stake, the rewards on offer are potentially huge.
