I tried creating a greyhound scalping bot but the problem I had was that there would be many big moves which made scalping impossible.
The price would be at 5.4 and someone would take it down to 4.5 in one hit and then it would continue downwards. This type of thing seemed to happen in most races, huge moves which took the lay and left me in a bad position.
I would get a few profitable scalps on the other runners but one big move on a dog and it would leave me in the red.
Im also amazed by how many bets you get matched and at such high stakes. My scalping bot would sometimes have races where only 3-4 bets would be matched, at £2 stakes and this was when I was always near the front of the queue.

This is amazingly impressive if true (Sorry for the cynicism!)

Well, It's not a photoshop image.

You also need to be aware of the back book% as it is a dead give away with Greyhounds as too how much the odds will jump!!!!. ;) You should either ignore or be very careful around races which have an odds on favourite!!! ;)

The gaps do appear, obviously. The problem is trying to-do it manually will mean ones eyes are often not quick enough. No offence.

Another piece of advice is...

Make sure the best back price is below the last traded price (LTP)

10 second fill or kill, repeat every 5 seconds.
