Each-Way Horse Racing Tip Of The Day – Friday 6th May
3.00 Market Rasen: JERSEY WONDER @ 12/1 with 888Sport
Pulled up the last day at Southwell but had excuses that day as bled from the nose and also lost a shoe in the race. This Oliver Sherwood-trained 6 year-old has had a nice break since (123 days) and prior to that run had been progressing well.
Is a 2-time winner over hurdles (9 runs) and has decent form on better ground that he’s likely to get today. The yard also fired in two winners yesterday so clearly have their horses in fine fettle.
Here’s what Jersey Wonder’s trainer – Oliver Sherwood has said about his chance today.
“Jersey Wonder has been consistent at his level since he went hurdling. Obviously the higher you get in the handicap the better the races are that you compete in, and that may be the case for his Cheltenham run, although he was too keen that day but his last two poor runs can be explained. His November run at Kempton came off the back of a busy summer and he needed a break, he then reappeared at Southwell in January and he pulled up having run no race after which he was found to be suffering from an irregular heart beat. He has been given a long break to recover and he had an ECG whilst being galloped a couple of weeks ago to make sure he was okay. You can never be certain that it won’t happen again in race conditions but he will be checked by BHA vets at the racecourse tomorrow and if anyone, including Amy or Johnny are worried about him in any way he won’t run. He has been in tremendous form at home recently, he’s such a professional in his work and schooling you can’t help but love him.” Oliver Sherwood (trainer)

Each-Way Betting Explained
An each-way bet is split into two parts
A win bet
A place bet
Therefore, if you are placing an each-way bet on a horse race your total stake will be split equally into two bets – half your stake will be wagered on the horse to win and the other half on the horse to be placed.
Winning a horse race is fairly self-explanatory, but the ‘place’ part means the horse will need to finish either 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th (this depends on the type of race and how many runners are in it) – you can see the industry standard each-way place terms here
Number of Runners:
1 – 4 runners – No Places – Win Only bet
5 – 7 runners – 1/4 Odds – 1st & 2nd place only
8+ runners – 1/5 odds – 1st, 2nd and 3rd place
12 – 15 runners (handicap races only) – 1/4 odds – 1st, 2nd and 3rd place
16+ runners (handicap races only) – 1/4 odds – 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th place
Shop Around The Bookmakers For Enchanced Each-way Place Terms
Yes, the above place terms are the set industry standard but with bookmakers competing for your business all the time, then many will offer enhanced place terms of their own.
This means, some bookmakers might offer places outside the top three or four places in certain races. These are more common in the big field handicap races – like the Grand National – and can often see the place terms paid out on horses that finish 5th, 6th, 7th or even 8th in the race.
How To Place An Each-way Bet In Horse Racing
You can see from the example screen shot below that all bookmakers will have an ‘Each-way (EW)’ tick box on their bet slips. Simply tick this e/w box and this will lock that horse in as an each-way selection.
You will notice that in the example below the £5 stake then becomes doubled (£10) – meaning you will have £5 on the horse to win and £5 on the horse to be placed.
