HR Back2Lay is a complete dobbing software that analyses every horse in every race, and includes numerous filters on the characteristics of the runners and the races to refine your choice. Other tools have also been integrated, allowing you to save your filters, export your selections, or calculate your bets with our multi-bets calculator if you bet manually.

Nothing has been left to chance. With HR Back2Lay (called also B2L) you will get the best DOB opportunities, but that’s not all, HR B2L also includes an analysis engine for Trobbing, H-Dobbing, etc. Or a combination of them… Nothing less!

Optimize your bets, maximize your profits and be part of the informed bettors who win!

** DOB literally means Double or Bust. This is an even money bet.
You back a horse before the off then you lay it at half-price with a double stake with the aim of having it matched inplay.

HR Back2Lay (HR B2L) is a complete dobbing software that analyses every horse in every race, and includes numerous filters.

When we created HRB2L, our first intention was to create a tool that could help punters in their dobbing strategy. Then, as we developed it, we realised that we could expand its scope and offer many more tools that would make HRB2L an indispensable software for any successful punter.

With HRB2L, being profitable in horse racing on Betfair has never been so easy.


You can see above the main interface of HRB2L. This is where is displayed the data you will use to prepare your DOBs, and other bets of the day.

Global Interface | Main Screen/Top Menu

The upper part of this dobbing software corresponds, on the one hand (upper part), to the Betfair database which contains the history of the in-play data of each horse, and on the other hand (lower part), to the internal database of the software which contains all the data of the races and runners (event name, horse name/age/form, etc). Both databases are updated daily and automatically around 7:00 am (UK time).

Global Interface | Sélection/Criteria Filters

The middle section is dedicated to filters and selection criteria. The filters are used to select the best opportunities of the day. If no filter is selected, the full list of the day’s runners is displayed in the selections table.

***Version 1.6.2 (released on 15/10/2022)***
New features:
– Selection criteria – Filters
* “Sprint” races has been added.
– Backtesting module
* 1-2-3- Staking Plan has been added. This is the exact reverse of the 1-2-3+ Saking Plan: we add 1 point after a win, and keep the same stake after a loss (reset after x steps).
***Version 1.6.1 (released on 03/08/2022)***
– Database improvement
***Version 1.6.0 (released on 19/06/2022)***
New features:
– Selection criteria – Filters
* “Bumper” races (National Hunt flat races) have been added.
* “1/2/3 Form” and “Won Last Run” have merged together and are now accessible from the “Form” button which includes the following options:
“All Forms”, “1/2/3 Form”, “1/2 Form”, “1 Form”, “Last Time Out Winner”, “No 1/2/3 Form”, “No 1/2 Form”, “No 1 Form”.
* “Only Reliable Races” is now accessible from the “Types” button which also includes the options “All Race Types” and “Only Not Reliable Races”.
– Backtesting module
* 1-2-3 Staking Plan has been improved and renamed “1-2-3+ Staking Plan”. You can now enter the maximum number of steps of your choice.
For example, if you enter the value 5, the staking plan will become 1-2-3-4-5.
***Version 1.5.2 (released on 10/02/2022)***
Bug fix:
– Bug fixed where the profit/loss in the columns A%/D%/AT/DT (LAST 3 RACES and ALL RACES) was not always correct, especially when there was only one race. As a result, configurations using the ALL+ options may have different results when Backtesting/Search actions are performed.
New features:
– Backtesting Configuration
* New options: minimum and maximum BSP, maximum liability.
***Version 1.5.1 (released on 12/01/2022)***
New features:
– Betfair Historical Data now includes the last 5 years (against the last 3 years before).
* You can choose to calculate the selections of your configuration based with the last 1 year, the last 2 years, the last 3 years, and now the las 4 years and the last 5 years of Betfair Historical Data.
* Remember that all the percentages and data in the columns that are in LAST 3 RACES, ALL RACES, and BET TIP are calculated from Betfair Historical Data.
* Using “Last 1 year” will give you complete different selections/results than using “Last 4 years” for example because a horse may has reached 100% of DOB the last year but only 25% the last 4 years.
– New backtesting module with:
* 3 staking plans included (Simple Recovery, Stop At a Winner (SAW), 1-2-3 Staking Plan),
* New graph layout,
* A printable/exportable table that contains all the bets.
– “Selection criteria – Filters” section has been completely redesigned. You now need to click on the pen image near each filter to modif it.

* New filters have been added: “Age”, DOB+/OB+ALL+ for Last 3 Races (L3R), “Won Last Run”, Unique Trainer/Jockey (yellow square),
* “Last≤30 d.” has been replaced by “Last Run” where you can specify the number of days.

– New Screen Resolution: 1920×1080 (minimum),
– The configuration name as been moved to the right of the “Del.” button,
– The “graph” button (near backtesting) has been replaced so that it is more visible.
– Online user manual is now completely updated.

Bug fixes:
– Bug fixed where the profit/loss data of the following columns were wrong: A%, D%, AT and DT (All races).
The profit/loss amounts are accessible by hovering each column. This has an impact on the selections of configurations that have one of the OB+ or ALL+ options ticked, as the embed configuration “Bet On All Tips”. The results have been recalculated and published on our website using “Last 4 Years” option instead of “Last 3 Years”.
***Version 1.0.9 (released on 23/11/2021)***
– After exporting the selections for MFP, you can no longer open the file with Excel or open Windows Explorer. This was not necessary and caused issues with the trigger. The file path is now automatically copied to the clipboard, so all you have to do is copy it to MFP when importing selections (right-click then paste, or keyboard shortcut Ctrl+V).
***Version 1.0.8 (released on 22/11/2021)***
Fixed bug where in rare cases some runners were mistakenly listed in a race they were not running.
***Version 1.0.7 (released on 16/11/2021)***
– Fixed bug where the last results were not updated automatically since the last version 1.0.6
– Fixed bug where the Sum of P/L was sometimes not exactly correct because it was not based on rounded amounts (contrary to the P/L column).
– Fixed bug related to AVGP bets (it alters a little the selections of the previous days).
– All the amounts when hovering the columns DB/TB/HB… have been rounded and are now in integer form.
– ALL+ option now selects horses with zero profit if the number of races concerned (DB/TB/HB…) is not equal to 0 (it alters a little the selections of the previous days – e.g. 15/11/2021: Get Tonic was initially not selected).
– New button for graphical display of profit/loss evolution (accessible after completed backtesting).
***Version 1.0.6 (released on 14/11/2021)***
– Minor calculation fix in main module regarding the AT/DT calculation.
– Minor calculation fix in Calcultator module regarding AVGT and DEVT calculations.
– Bug fixed where the day in letter did not change when backtesting.
– Bug fixed where hot/cold trainers/jockeys were not correctly retrieved when updating the database manually.
– Bug fixed where pace were sometimes wrongly empty.
– Bug fixed where today’s race 14:35 displayed 10 runners whereas there were only 6 runners.
– Bug fixed where sometimes the next bet could not be placed if the previous race was not finished (when Recover equal to 0).
– Bug fixed where recovering mode did not work with AVGP and DEVP bets.
***Version 1.0.4 (released on 11/11/2021)***
– Fixed bug where manually importing races would not work if the races had already been imported.
– Fixed bug where the calculation of the rating could in some cases be slightly wrong with the bet type “BEST”.
– Bet tip “BEST” is now displayed “DOB” instead of “BEST” when the BEST% is 50. This does not change the way the software works, it is just a name change.
– New “Del.” button to delete the current configuration.
***Version 1.0.2 (released on 10/11/2021)***
– Fixed bug where sorting the table by the following columns crashed the application:
DOB (Last 3 races), TROB (Last 3 races), HDOB (Last 3 races), Avg % (Last 3 races), Dev. % (Last 3 races), Avg Ticks (Last 3 races), Dev. Ticks (Last 3 races).
***Version 1.0.1 (released on 08/11/2021)***
– Fixed bug where “Display X bets” were not always working as it should. It has been renamed “Display X bets and NS (non-selected runners).
– Fixed bug where the horse’s silk was not visible in the Horse Information window (right-click on the “Horse” column).
– Fixed bug where the auto-update did not download the new installation file
– The online user manual is partly available and will be completed very soon.
– Calculator: New module accessible by clicking the button below the Setting button. Useful for traders that prefers to place bets manually or with their own stakes.
***Version 1.0.0 (released on 05/11/2021)***

    I am a trader usually scalping and swing trading. Now this software is excellent for Back2Lay and handles the risky in play trading. I have used many data and stat software over the years, this one is by far the best and coupled with a lifetime licence at such a reasonable cost. Just fire it up in the morning set your filters and prepare for many profitable Back2Lay Dob Trob trades later on in the day. Thank you Bettingdev.

Q & A

We need more info on how the 5 yr back test works - because when I run the back test I dont see it going through 5 years worth of races on screen? It just seems to cycle through the races from the internal database which is from the 31st of October 2021. How is it actually checking my strategy against 5yrs? Joe Alizadeh asked on January 21, 2022

The backtesting module is not over 5 years, but over 3 months now (from 31 october), which is the date when HRB2L was finished.
HRB2L uses 2 databases:
- The Betfair database that contains the BSP and minimum odds inplay reached by the horse. These data are used to calculate the different percentages (columns LAST 3 RACES and ALL RACES). The calculations are based on the period you have selected ("Analyze data from").
- It's own database, that contains the horse number, age, current form, FC odds, Naps, Jockey and Trainers form, and pace, etc, all the data that is not available in the Betfair database. The data available in this database does not exceed the 31th October 2021.

How was the green Column achieved using the "best" section? What does the Best section imply? Thanks in advance. Mike asked on October 7, 2021

By green section, I suppose that you are talking about the column called "P/L" under the BEST DROP section wich is the best drop opportunity of the horse based on his previous races. The P/L represents the amount you should have won if you had back the horse at BSP then layed him at an odds % lower in all his races.

Laurence Bettingdev answered on October 7, 2021 store manager

Thanks Laurence.
To clarify, the "Best % Drop" is advised pre race, and the PL shown against each horse is the amount it has achieved when backing at this advised % Drop. Is this correct?

Mike answered on October 8, 2021

Yes Mike, it is correct.

What time are the daily data released?

We aim to release data files around 7 am (UK time).

I have been playing around with Back2Lay software and I came across some troubles. 1. I have red somewhere on the website that ‘BEST’ Selections are 80% dobs? is that correct? or is it 50%? Cause When I look at the results they appear to be random or different every time. 2. Some selections don’t show any results, either Win or Loss… Why is that ?

This is not an issue, the calculations are correct. I will explain how it works.
In your screenshot, all the bets are BEST bets. This means that the the BACK bet is placed with the stake value that is in the Stake column, and the lay bet at a percentage lower than the BSP that is in the column “Best”.

So, if I take your first screenshot, the first bet is a BEST bet for £14 at 85% (Best column). If you use the Calculator of HRB2L you will see that the expected profit is about £78, the same value than the P/L in your screenshot.
The second selection was a BEST bet at 50%, which is equal to a DOB, so the P/L is £20.

Regarding the fact that some P/L are empty, this is simply due to the fact that the BEST bet was not possible. Again, you can check with HRB2L calculator. For example, if the BSP is 2.5 and the BEST bet is 65%, the BEST bet cannot be processed because the odds is too low.
