This is a basic Guardian automation rule for use on Horse Racing markets

The bot will monitor each of the cross-over points (where price increments change) on all selections up to odds of 10.0 - So that's 2.0,4.0,6.0 & 10.0 and will start doing this 15 mins before the off-time.

When the back price of any selection reaches any of these prices the bot adds a £10 lay bet at the cross-over which is offset with greening for 1 tick if matched, once greened up this is repeated up until 30 seconds before the off at which time it will stop placing any more new bets, then with 10 secs remaining any unmatched bets will be cancelled and a final green up done to ensure everything is equal across all selections before the start of the event.

To use the file just click on the Scalp the Cross-Over.Baf attachment link below and this will download it to your computer, then with guardian open on the "Automation" tab click "Import a Rules File" as shown in the image, once imported it will now appear in the drop down box just above, you can now apply it to any markets you have added into guardian.

The stake size can be edited very easily by clicking on "Edit Rules File" then click on the "Parameters" tab and change to whatever you require.

Additional parts/conditions can also be added or removed from the bot as you build it into your own bespoke automation file.

With any automation bot always run in practice mode first to ensure everything is working fine, and repeat this each time you make any changes

is it possible to add a condition where you only lay at a certain price if so many runners are above a threshold?

e.g. Lay fav but all other runners must price must be above 8?

Yes if you add the following condition

"Fixed odds Condition"
Nominated by poistion (sorted in order of favourtism) 2
Last traded price
is "Greater" than 8.0

Hi,

I'm working on a file and have nearly completed it but just want to make sure im doing it right. my last rule am using is like a steamer condition.

e.g. only place a lay bet if the odds of other horses are falling therefore catching the cross overs easier. Would I be right in thinking this comes under a "condition" "Historic relative odds" and not as a separate rule.

Many Thanks for any help!

Regards

JJ

Yes thats right, your basically saying place the lay bet on the condition the other runner/s have shortened in price - and if they have nt do not lay

Hello.

Ive been running this bot all afternoon, works fine. Just a quick question, one of the markets got matched 19 times at £10 each time. Would i need £190 in my betfair account for it to be successful, and as betfair can take up to 5+ mins to settle would in need considerably more to cover the next 2 or so races?
And as it got matched a odd (19) amount of times would it have been better getting matched a even number of times (20) If so how could i adjust the bot to allow it more time to get the final evening up bet to be placed with out a new lay bet kicking in?
Many thanks

No the money is recycled each time the offset is matched and because it starts by laying you only need a bank with enough to cover the highest liability, so if its laying a runner @ 10.0 a bank of £100 is enough to this and it can still simultaneously lay at all the lower cross-overs as well.

Also it does nt to be a even number because it only places the offset part (back bet) once the lay is matched, so when you seen it trigger 19 times that will of been 19 lays followed by 19 offset backs

Hi (Dallas!)
Tried using this a couple of hours ago and the bot went inplay. I haven't changed a thing since downloading apart from the stake (£2).
Obviously, the triggering stops at thirty seconds before the off. One quite hefty loss but you don't want to go inplay anyway, would you?

If your switching the market to the main Bet Angel screen it should be greening up and clearing any unmatched bets well before the off, if its running in guardian with dozens of other markets the green up trigger window could be getting missed
