[TR] request a false drifter
« on: 25 Dec 2016, 08:27 »
I would like a trigger created but looking at the posts I have found half a trigger but need help amending it.

At the moment I look at the at the races website at 12 at the top ten drifters. I then place a bet on that horse 25 mins before the race to back it. Then 5 mins before races lay to get a 10 % profit.

So the trigger attached does all the back setting but I need it amend to add the lay section.

Can this trigger be amended so if the greening up in not match up before the off it is kept in play to see if it gets matched

hi
the green up trigger is set to Keep so the bet should go until matched or the race has ended.

can I ask I was looking at the trigger logs today or system and I seen one or two entries like the below. It states that horse backed as 1.01 but I thought the min back was set for 2.00 or is that just how the trigger log reports it

Horse Racing / GB / Bang 3rd Jan / 15:50 2m NHF 03 Jan: Going to BACK £ 10.00 at 1.01 on selection 'Born Naughty'. Bet is matched. If unmatched, bet will be cancelled at In-Play. The bet was placed/cancelled by Trigger "Back".

hi
your trigger is set to take the best price , so when the price is between 2 and 100 the trigger sends a bet out at 1.01 to guarantee getting matched at the best price.

When you say best price is that because the greening up setting is at a certain percentage or is it another setting in the trigger that dictates that match

hi
check your original trigger.
the betting/back trigger is set to best in the price box so this tells betfair that you will take whatever price is available at the time the bet was placed , if you only want 2 or more price then change the best to 2 and betfair will give you the best price of 2 or more.
but if the price moves very quick to 1.99 the bet will be unmatched.

hi
you can replace the best with 2 , then betfair will only match at 2 or more.
you cannot set the price between 2 and 9 because betfair will always match the bet with the best price available at your set minimum price.

hi
in your back trigger you will see
and selections back price is between 2 and 100
change the 100 to 9 then the trigger will only place a bet if the price is between 2 and 9 , but sometimes the price will be 9 and jump higher , then betfair will match it at the higher price most times it will be ok.
