I'm a bit new to horse racing, what does each way mean?

Sorry for the retarded question but it always seems like something you can make money off the occasional tip if you know what you're doing.

It means your horse just has to finish placed (what 'placed' means depend on the race, some are top 2, some are top 3 or 4 or even 5. Usually is determined by how many horses are in the field).
You only get a fraction of the winnings if its only placed (and doesnt win), again its usally 1/4 or 1/5th of the odds.

Example.

Horse is 10/1

Bookmaker is paying out on top 4 places at 1/4 odds.

You put €10 e/w, this total stake will cost you €20.(think of it as 2 bets, 1 tenner is going on the horse to win, the other is going on the horse to be placed)

If the horse wins you get the winning bet (so 10X10 =100), but you also get the placed bet as the horse has been placed also, (so thats, 1/4 of 10/1 = 2.5/1 @€10 = €25) So in total you win €125, plus your €20 stake back. So €145.

If the horse only gets placed, you only win the €25 and your €10 'placed stake back. So €35.

Aaaaah right that explained it very well. Cheers.

Tempted to copy that guy above.

Need to cut back on the gambling though, I'm not losing money or anything just spending way too much time doing it! When you start getting given loyalty rewards then that's probably a sign.

I went in play with Galahad fight, after 1 round Wales face was marked up knew it would get stopped within 12. Odds weren't great but less risk

Got it in one.

I stuck it on the under in the Price fight, Audley to win (whyyyyy) and Bute to win. I think I got about 3.5/1 for that so not bad.

I like the under on the price fight and will back Bute myself if the price moves...too short for me just now.

As for Aud, who knows?

Just saw Senegal are 33-1 for football at the Olympics, gotta be worth a 5 e/w With their Newcastle duo!

Yeah I think it was about 1/2 for Bute. Not great but not so bad either and I think it will come in so it was worth sticking in there.

Can anyone see anything other than a Bute points victory? I know he could get robbed in Nottingham and am not convinced Froch has the skill to beat him although i'd love if he did. Carl also has had his chin tested so can't really see him going over. 7/4 for Bute decision seems good anyone think its a bad idea to go heavy on??

I personally wouldn't have a big bet on it, wouldn't shock me if Froch got the nod, it will be close either way.

As much as I love Froch I think 7/4 is very good odds for Bute decision. I just can't see Carl winning it.

Bute may even be able to stop him *ducks rotton tomatoes*. He has lethal body shots.
