please clarify - will your return from the bookie be 600?

i.e. 100 stake and 500 profit

Then you're sitting pertty

As the horses are not 'across the card' you can be as felxible as you want to be on the first won to run

e.g. 70 lay liability of about 50

a) - Is that 5/1 Profit (Excluding Stake) - or 5/1 Returned (including Stake)
   - ie - £500 Profit - or £400 Profit?

b) - The Exchange prices that you quote are unlikely - at the SAME time as the Bookie bet placed -  as they are much lower that the Bookie odds.

c) - Are you proposing the Hedge/Lay back the Bookie bet on the Exchange?
   
d) -  1.71 = 11/8 ... 2.35 = just over 11/8
   -  The Exchange Double would, therefore  come to 4.1 - or a Liability of 3.1 ... or  £310 (excluding commission)

You need to explain your intentions more fully - for further input.

* omission (shown in red text) & error (shown in purple text) -

d)- 1.71 = just under 8/11 ... 2.35 = just under 11/8
