The Grand National is the biggest and most famous National Hunt race of them all. It is the one race of the year that really catches the imagination of the Great British public. And yet, it’s as tough a race to suss out as there is.
As the 2018 Grand National approaches, many people are seeking to get their bets on before the prices are cut, but if you are going to do that, ensure you use a bookie that is offering NON RUNNER NO BET on the race.
That means that if the horse you back is withdrawn before the race (through injury or it doesn’t make the final cut) you’ll have your stake refunded so you won’t lose your cash!

What is Non Runner No Bet?
Non Runner No Bet is an offer run by the best bookies on many of the biggest races and meetings (such as the Cheltenham Festival) whereby they will refund the stake of your bet in full if it turns out that your horse is a non runner – i.e. it doesn’t go to post for the race.
A horse might become a non runner if it is withdrawn in advance of the race due to an injury or indeed simply if the trainer or owner decides it wants to give the race a miss.
Alternatively, it might be that you place a bet on a horse before the final declaration of the field is made and your horse simply doesn’t make the final cut. Either way, if the bookie you placed the bet with is running Non Runner No Bet on the race, you won’t lose anything – you will have your stake refunded in full in cash and you can choose to either withdraw it to your bank account or place an alternative bet.
What is Non Runner FREE Bet?
Note that while most decent bookies will run Non Runner NO Bet, some choose to offer No Runner FREE BET instead. This is essentially the same thing except that your stake will be refunded in free bets (as opposed to cash). This means that you will not be able to simply withdraw the funds to your bank account. Instead you will need to place a bet using the free bet and win that before withdrawing funds (and note that in all likelihood, the free bet stake will not be returned with any winnings).
As such, always make sure you read the full terms and conditions of any offer you are claiming, which are always available on the betting sites.
