Remember Favourite at Start of Race
« on: 06 Feb 2024, 15:31 »
Hello,

I'm trying to set up a requirement on one of my triggers where the name of the favourite at the very beginning of a horse race is remembered, and then when in play, a bet is placed or not placed on that particular horse (regardless of whether it is still the favourite).

I've tried the following but to no joy.

Selections trigger expression sel_name equals / does not equal mysels_r_1_sel_name.

Can you please assist?

Regards

Barry

Hi
There is a variable for fav (or rank) recorded just before the off which you can use in-play: last_order. So you can do it all in one trigger without having to remember etc.

Trigger would be:
BACK
market status: in-play
first matching selection
conditions:
selections trigger expression last_order is equal to 1 
and any other conditions you need e.g. mins since the off

If you want to base it on fav as soon as market is in-play I suggest using actual_sp:
BACK
market status: in-play
first matching selection
conditions:
selections sorting order is defined by actual_sp
and selections trigger expression match_index is equal to 1 
and any other conditions you need e.g. mins since the off

please test in test mode
