[TR] lay the field in play when 2 horses are competitive
« on: Wed, 21 October, 2015, 12:34 »
Can anyone help with this? I want to lay the field when 2 horses are close to the finish. When the lead horse's price is 2 or less I want to lay the field at 1.61 but only when a second horse's price is 3 or less to hope for a competitive finish. If the second horse price does not reduce to 3 then there is no bet. Is it possible to design a trigger to achieve this??

Hi mcbee.
The trigger is working fine except that when the trigger conditions are met the programme asks me if I want to place all the lay bets or not.  I want to place the bets every time is there a way of removing this question so the bets are fired in straight away?
Finally does the trigger reload itself between races when betting in automatic form?
Once again thanks for the help

Hi mcbee
As you suggested I have tested the trigger and found it works well. In my trigger request I indicated that the lead horse price should equal 2 or less and the second horse price must reduce to 3 or less resulting in a lay the field bet of 1.61 for all horses in the race. The Trigger you designed links these two conditions so that the lay bets are not placed until both conditions are satisfied simultaneously. I have noted that the lead horse(you describe it as favourite) status changes in a close finish and sometimes the lay bets are fired in late.
Is it possible to separate the price conditions as 2 unique conditions?  So that the first condition for the lead horse is met at 2 or less. It doesn't matter if this horses price goes above 2 thereafter.  The second condition for another horse to reach 3 or less fires the lay bets trigger no matter what the price of the lead horse is.
I would welcome your thoughts. Thanks in anticipation. Dave (dac11)

hi
i have altered the trigger to use the minimum back price over the last 5 minutes of any selection.
so if at least one selections price drops to your set price or lower and the second fav reaches your set price then the lay bets will be placed.

please use test mode
