Default Laying Fav in running

Does anyone have experience laying favs in running?

How hard would it be to lay a fave between $2-$2.50?

I know that if they blow the start the price would move out, but how often does the price fall bellow the levels mentioned with people still wanting to take a lay bet on them?

A word of warning. Don't lay them if they lead.
I never lay favs in running but I do back them - much safer. I have a mate who backs favs who miss the start or get back especially if the stats indicate that the on pace runners are not favoured at the course/ distance.
One trick that works quite often is to lay a fav pre race that you know gets back and back it at a (usually) better price when they do. You can let it ride or green up.

With out exposing to much of what i have in mind my aim is to lay at around $2.00 -$2.50 with a back bet already secured, basically a trading situation so i don't care if they win or lose just wondering how hard it would be to get the money on at that price.

It depends on their price before the run and also where they settle in running. Sometimes I can get a better price in running when the fav has settled in a winning position than the tote price showing on the screen. I have no idea why. On other occasions a well positioned fav will trade really short.

Another angle is to lay the Fav at 20% less than its starting price,
in-running .

Then set a Back bet up to go on once price blows out by 20% of its starting price , in-running, once Lay bet has been matched.

Once both are matched , one has the option to let it ride, so that we make a profit if it wins & break even if it loses.
OR
Hedge the matched bets for an equal profit whether it wins or losses.

Best to use 1400m+ races.
This gives us more time to set the bets.
