Probably just let it run
Stoke or Swansea to win is 3/10. Maybe watch the game and bet in play. Tough one to call. Best of luck tho

A lay bet is a bet that something wont win.
So if you lay a horse and the horse loses = you win
If you lay a horse and the horse wins = you lose

You lay TBones Trouble at 3-1 in the 2.10 at Southwell. You set a stake of £420 being the amount you could lose if the horse wins

As you are giving odds of 3-1, and you have set your max loss at £420, this means you can take bets of £140, because if the horse wins you'd need to pay winning of 3x£140=£420.

So if the horse loses - you don't have to pay out - so you keep the stakes of £140 - i.e. you win £140

But if the horse wins - you have to pay out 3 x £140 = £420 so you lose £420

For the sake of a fiver I would let it run.

But, if you are the type who likes the option to lock in profit/cover your stake given a chance, then you should read up on and get to understand laying. It's very simple.

Check out www.betfair.com

Best of luck with your bet. Hope it comes in for you.
