Lay 7 Trebles




High street bookies accept multiple bets every day.
Some bookies offer incentives to encourage punters to bet in multiples such as trebles.
That is a clear indication of how much bookies value these kind of bets.
Now you can copy what they do by Laying several trebles.

The spreadsheet below shows the stakes required to Lay up to 12 selections in 7 separate trebles.
With 12 selections, there are a possible 220 treble combinations, but this staking plan covers only 7 of them, leaving you with less than a 1 in 30 chance of hitting a winning treble combination with your 12 lays.
The treble combinations (shown below), are arranged so that each selection appears a maximum of only once in any other treble.
For example, your first selection appears in only 1 treble.
Selections 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 appear in only 2 trebles each, whilst selections 11 and 12 appear in only 1 treble.
If you were a bookie offering this multiple trebles bet, your customer, the punter could have the first 7 winners on his betting slip, and not have a winning treble.
Also, if his first 4 selections were losers, and then his last 8 selections were winners, he would not have a winning treble.

Normally when you bet on a double or treble, you select just one runner per race and any winnings are carried forward onto the next part of your double or treble, but when you Lay doubles or trebles, you don’t have to Lay single horses.
As a Layer, you may choose to start several trebles in the same race, and guarantee several losing trebles in your first race.
Suppose you decide to Lay 7 trebles.
In theory, you could start 7 separate trebles by Laying 7 selections in one race, and in doing so, you could guarantee that at least 6 of those trebles would fail, since there could only be one winner.
You would have at least 6 successful Lays, and if you were unlucky enough to hit the winner, one unsuccessful Lay.
Of your 7 trebles, only one could possibly have stakes carried forward to the second part of the bet.

This Lay 7 Trebles spreadsheet allows a maximum of 3 or 4 selections in any one race, depending upon the progress of your trebles.
If you don’t hit the winner with those 3 or 4 selections, all of your 7 trebles will fail, and you will have 7 points profit.


  • Lay 4 runners in your first race.
    All 7 trebles could fail, giving you a 7 point profit.
    If you hit the winner with Horse 1, only 1 stake would be carried forward to the 2nd part of a treble.
    If you hit the winner with Horse 2, 3, or 4, a maximum of 2 stakes would be carried forward to the 2nd part of 2 separate trebles.
  • Lay 1 runner in a second race.
    If you hit the winner, stakes would be carried forward to the 3rd part of one treble.
  • If necessary, place your final Lay on the remaining treble.

You may of course, Lay less than 3 or 4 runners in each race.
This spreadsheet, shows the Lay stakes required to Lay each treble as they progress.

Lay one runner at a time, or more than one runner.
The spreadsheet shows the stakes required to Lay 7 trebles from 12 runners, with in theory, a less than 1 in 30 chance of hitting a winning treble.
