Interesting thread, I am sure I am missing something obvious here, but why would a bot placing a fixed £50 back bet at a back price several ticks above the LTP give an opportunity for another manual trader to exploit it and make a few ticks profit ?
it doesnt

The reason for doing so is to stop people seeing your stakes and stop you being identified.

Theres a guy/girl in the greyhound markets tonight using £50 stakes. Its easy money for people who can see that. Put £150 in front and you have a nice trade for couple quid.
If you are keen to add a randomised element to your bet stakes to give you some degree of anonymity you could just set up some servants to place your back and lay bets.

If for example you wanted a stake to be randomised up or down £2.50 you could set up a 2 rule Servant as follows

RULE 1 - Set Stored Values
set stored value sv1 = volume of selection plus volume of market (or some other fairly randomish values such as funds available at a price)
set stored value sv2 = stored value sv1 divided by 5 rounded to nearest whole number
set stored value sv3 = stored value sv2 multiplied by 5
set stored value randomish_adjustment = stored value sv1 minus stored value sv3 (at this stage randomish_adjustment should be in the range plus or minus £2.50)
set stored value randomish_stake = stored value randomish_adjustment plus servant context back/lay stake (taking care to use a servant context stake over £2.50)

RULE 2 - Place Back or Lay bet using the servant context price with the stake set to the stored value randomish_stake

For bigger/smaller adjustments use values other than 5 when setting sv2 and sv3 in RULE 1
