The Each Way Double

Champion Chaser Kauto StarChampion Chaser Kauto Star

The each way double bet for horse race bettors can produce good returns even if the odds are small; especially if 1/4 odds are offered on the place part.

If you backed a horse each way at 3/1 you would lose money but combine 2 of them in an e.w. double and you begin to start making money.

The principle is that the return on the first race, if it places or wins, is used for the stake on the 2nd race. If the 2nd race places or wins then the bet is successful. 

Obviously the return depends on the odds involved.

How Doubles Work

For example if we placed a £10 e.w. double on 2 horses in different races priced 3/1 at 1/5 the odds the return if both place is £25.60 giving a profit of £5.60.

If both win however the return is £185.60 and the profit is £165.60.

You can also place an each way bet on two or more horses in the same race. But of course only one of them stands to win.

Obviously the each way double bet is worth serious consideration especially if we can find ourselves a bet where one of the odds is say 10/1.

Let's look at the return for a £10 bet where we have odds of 10/1 and 4/1. This would return £620 giving a profit (less stake of £20) of £600 if both won.
