Anyone else looking at the course characteristics in the software as a filter? I am thinking that it is probably more reliable than course filters as there is a much bigger dataset

Hi Jon I've just started following your back maiden favs strategy, I've noticed last night and this morning that in the 1.00 and 1.35 at Nottingham two different selections were posted, posted posiedon Prince, yesterday , and tephi this morning and the same in the 1.35 , also there's a 20/1 outsider in the 2.00 at bellewstown, can you tell me how to play these do I go with the last named selections or just back the unnamed fav in the the advised races. Many thanks.

@ian-wylie Will be Wine i think. I dont get anything like that on windows. Did have a few issues with fairbot but most resolved after swapping to the streaming api. I have never seen freezing or anything like that.

Nothing hit the odds range yesterday. Shame as they both would have traded well.

Hi guys,

Was wondering if anyone has come across this situation. I was doing some in play on a race today using Fairbot and thought I had a small profit as per the screenshot from Fiarbot below as Super Chief won the race.

However when I looked at the Betfair web page I saw the following:
0_1663867274786_Screenshot from 2022-09-22 17-24-43.png

The screenshots were taken within a few seconds of each other.

I have noticed a few issues before with Fairbot where it will freeze for a few seconds and then catch up but didn't notice anything like that during this race. Has anyone else come across similar issues?

I've been watching a number of the video's on Alistair Hamilton's YouTube page and he mentioned on one of them that he was having issues with Fairbot freezing now and again. Like him I'm running Fairbot on Linux via Wine so not sure if it's a Fairbot issue or something to do with the Wine implementation.

Cheers,
Ian

@martin been doing a similar trade last start beaten faves on a freshen up(45+days since raced)

I want to start looking into last start beaten faves dropping in distance that have raced within 30days of last start(maybe 21 days but selections would be very small i think). I think there may be an edge on that strategy. Its a common rule not the back a beaten fave dropping back in distance

@martin it looks alright. But it’s staking it differently and laying to a fixed liability is always a slower burn. I’ll whack it up in the next couple of days.

No match yesterday and no selections today. There will be selections for flat pace and short odds lays if you have the software. Also my newest toy Beaten Favourites Lays which is doing nicely after 6 weeks of testing. I'll post it up soon in the megathread

Colour me intrigued!
