Working out lay amount on Betfair

As I’ll be doing a lot of laying I need to find a quick way of working out what to put in the ‘backer’s stake’ box.

Its a pretty simple calculation. You take the lay price, subtract 1 and then divide your stake by this number.

So for attempt 1, bet 1, I wanted to risk £50 on Fulham. Price to lay was 6.8. Subtract 1, gives 5.8. £50 divided by 5.8 is £8.62. That’s how I go the lay stake.
