Horse Racing Each Way Rules

It’s difficult to consistently work out each-way returns for horse racing bets but we try our best here at BettingTools.co.uk. Unless there is a special offer from a particular bookmaker the majority of them usually adhere to the following rules:

Non-Handicap Races

2 – 4 Runners Win Only
5 – 7 Runners 1/4 the Odds 1, 2
8 or more Runners 1/5 the Odds 1, 2, 3

Handicap Races

2 – 4 Runners Win Only
5 – 7 Runners 1/4 the Odds 1, 2
8 – 11 Runners 1/5 the Odds 1, 2, 3
12 – 15 Runners 1/4 the Odds 1, 2, 3
16 or more Runners 1/4 the Odds 1, 2, 3, 4

 

Matters are complicated further by non-runners and rule 4 deductions but again this is something we again take into account when settling horse racing tips in our Tipster Table tipster competition.

    paying 4th places on 16 runners does it have to be a handicap

      Yes, that’s correct unless there is a special offer on with that specific bookmaker.
