This is a basic Guardian automation bot for use on the pre-race horse racing markets.
During the final 5 mins before the start of the race this bot is looking for a possible swing trade using the classic 2v1 situation which means if two horse move in one direction the third will most likely move the opposite way.

It will monitor the 1st-3rd fav and if any two drift by 5 or more ticks within 60 seconds it will back the other runner with a £10 stake using a 10 tick offset with greening and 10 tick trailing stop loss.

Alternatively, if any two shorten by 5 or more ticks it will lay the other also for a £10 stake using a 10 tick offset with greening and 10 tick trailing stop loss.
It will only bet on one runner at a time but if greened up or stopped out the process will be repeated if another move occurs.

A final green up is then done as a safety precaution in the last 30 seconds.

This automation file uses the ‘Historic Relative Odds Condition’ on each of the back or lay rules to determine when the other two runners have moved before placing the back or lay bet, should you wish to edit the number of ticks or time frame currently used these conditions is where you would make the changes. Or if you wanted to change or add further runners to be monitored.

To use the file just click on the Swing Trade 2Vs1.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 as with all other aspects of this file can also be edited very easily by clicking on "Edit Rules File" then click on the "General, Parameters & Conditions" 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

The profitability of bots usually varies a lot. Both over different seasons and different sizes and types of races. They are the very epitome of previous performance not guaranteeing future results too because other bots come and go, some of which affect your bot. Many a good bot has suddenly stopped working for no obvious reason.

It's almost certain that no bot will work on every market. The bots published here are good starting points for your own variations and for you to find out how best to implement them.

I'm afraid you won't find anyone who will say that bot A works on x y and z markets. That information takes a lot of time and effort to gather and as I say in the first para, if you give away a profitable bot chances are it'll stop being profitable. In fact I'd go as far as to say that the default settings on Dallas's bots are probably tested to prove they aren't profitable as is.

The classic saying that's worth remembering goes... Every strategy has its market and every market has its strategy.
