William Hill usually pay out at ¼ the odds for places 1-2-3. Many things could alter the number of places paid, including promotions made by the marketing team and trading team, size of the field and non-runners.

How Many Places Do William Hill Payout at Cheltenham?

The number of places depends on the class of the race and the number of runners involved in that contest. The each-way betting rules at Cheltenham are no different to any other UK horse racing meeting of the year, although, on occasion, the marketing team does boost the place terms in an attempt to drive new customers to the site. More on that later.

Find information below on general each-way betting rules in the UK.

Non-Handicap Races

  • 2 – 4 Runners: Win Only
  • 5 – 7 Runners: 1/4 the odds over two places
  • Eight or more Runners: 1/5 the odds over three places

The races that are handicap races are worked out using the following each-way terms:

Handicap Races

  • 2 – 4 Runners: Win Only
  • 5 – 7 Runners: 1/4 the odds over two places
  • 8 – 11 Runners: 1/5 the odds over three places
  • 12 – 15 Runners: 1/4 the odds over three places
  • 16 or more Runners: 1/4 the odds over four places

Promotions and offers,

It is often the case that William Hill enhances their each-way terms for the biggest races on the calendar, extending to the Cheltenham Gold Cup and supporting races. In this instance, the bookie may boost the place terms by ⅕ the odds 1-2-3 to ¼ the odds 1-2-3, which means you will receive a greater payout should your selection win the race or finish in the major places.

This promotion encourages new bettors to join William Hill, but it also entices existing players to return to the app to place their gambles. If you are betting on a race at Cheltenham, it makes perfect sense to do it with a bookie offering better place terms than the competition. Click the promotions tab on the William Hill website or app for the latest deals.

There are terms and conditions attached to promotions and each-way betting in general, and we advise you read any necessary small print before making your bets. Doing so will ensure you have a strong understanding of how the promo works and the each-way rules on non-runners, withdrawals and rule 4s.
