Glorious Goodwood extra place offers
Enhanced place terms are another kind of 2023 Glorious Goodwood offer to look out for.

The stake is split evenly across the two bets, so a £5 each-way Glorious Goodwood bet on a horse will cost £10 in total (£5 on the win and £5 on the place).
The Golden Mile at Glorious Goodwood is one example of a handicap race featuring 16 or more runners. Here, the minimum each-way place terms are for the first four places. However, betting sites will offer better place terms to encourage you to bet with them. Many will pay out on 5 or 6 places, with the odd bookmaker even stretching to the first 7 places.
