i think what I'm saying is that by allowing the input to be freeform (but with strict rules), it means that the nuances of different sports can be captured as required, without having to present a ton of dropdown list options.

looking fwd to seeing this in next version -lol

I appreciate that BF does not always use consistent names, e.g. "Nov Stks" could be "Nov Stakes" but Jimbits idea works fine for me... Incidences of these inconsistencies are v low...
Agreed, but … if it had operators such as AND and OR you could build a library of Betfair nuances and have …

Contains: Nov Stks OR Nov Stakes

… or maybe with wildcards just …

Contains: "Nov *"

this all looks to be headed in the right direction with enough freeform input to capture complex market mixes but with a simple and recognisable *syntax* that is used already in other parts of the application (market filters/quick picks etc)....

Always educated to choose markets carefully, heck Peter's mantra, "Every strategy a market and every market a strategy" means this would be a big improvement to an already amazing piece of software.

Was just thinking if the conditions can be applied to EVENT_NAME then could condition on distance too (as well as race type)...
