Incorrect favourite choosing
« on: Thu, 18 June, 2020, 20:29 »
Hi,

I'm laying second favourites but having the following problems

1) Joint favourites, it tends to choose the more favoured one

2) Clear favourite, doesnt lay the 2nd, lays the first

It lays the favourite and it's really skewing test results

Looking at the triggered much higher price and the much lower last market price of your selection, it seems to me that your selection probably firmed from 2nd fav to 1st fav.

Not much you can do about that. Perhaps define trigger activation closer to the "off" ?

If these are UK dogs, you shouldn't be determining the 2F until a few secs before the official start time.  Looking at the amount matched your bet must have been more than a minute before the off.

I don't see your trigger so I can't be totally sure of the reason this is happening.

You can check the prices of the selections at the moment of placing the bets. To do this, add the following action to the betting action of your trigger:

write to action log
Text: [r_1_back_price], [r_2_back_price], [r_3_back_price]


Then, after a bet is placed, simply check the prices of the three favourites in the Program Log, and you will have your answer.
Always try your triggers in Test Mode before switching to real money!

Yep this is what was happening, "2nd Fav is chosen as 2nd most money on it. Will have to adjust the plan
