This servant is for use on pre-race horse racing markets.

This is identical to the one Peter demonstrated in a recent video except I have built on it a little further by adding a few extra features which of course Peter could not cover in the video or it would have ended up being nearly 30 mins long and even longer if he had to find scenarios were each feature could be shown in action,
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVJA9IAd7v4

So I have taken his idea from that video as a foundation to create this servant.

What it does

As shown in the video when the servant is started it will place a £10 back bet at the best reverse price (the current lay price), if this is not matched in 10 secs it will be killed. You can then start the servant again whenever you’re ready. The only thing different from the video is that when a back bet is placed it uses the new stored value option to store the value of the back price when it triggers (you will see why later).

If the back bet is matched a £10 lay bet will be placed at the best reverse price (current back price) also just as its shown in the video.

Apart from adding a stored value when the back bet triggers the only other thing different from the video is I have changed the ‘Matched bets amount condition’ slightly to work the additional features detailed below into it.

Extra Features

I have added a ‘Stop previous Servants’ on selection rule so that any previous unused lay bets won't trigger causing multiple lay bets to be placed if you use the servant over and over (ie, if an earlier back bet was killed before the lay had a chance to trigger).

Also, I have included a ‘Checkpoint matched bets' rule which effectively resets all previous bets prior to the servant being started so if you had part matched bets they won’t interfere with the ‘Matched bets amount condition’ (which is used to control when the lay triggers). Also, it means that if you place other manual bets or run other servants between using this one all the bets from those are ignored and will not impact on what happens here.

Finally, I have added a ‘Close Trade with Greening’ rule, this uses a stored value condition to test if the price goes 3 ticks higher than the stored value made by the back bet – effectively a stop loss so if the price goes against you (and above the stored value) by 3 ticks it will green up your trade.

Using the Servant

All the above means the servant can be started multiple times (even after a stop loss has triggered) all you need to do is ensure the opening back bet is matched or killed before starting it again – so it can be started again while waiting for the lay side to be matched just not while the opening back side is still in the market.

In the event, the opening bet is only part matched no lay will be placed of course it will mean you will be in profit so I have left this for the user to decide what you do manually.

Remember at the end you will need to green up manually or invoke another servant to do it for you.

To use this servant just click on ASC Simple Scalping.Baf attachment links below and this will download it to your computer, then open your Servant Manager window and click the rules link at the top and then "Import a Rules File" as shown in the image, once imported it will now appear in your dropdown boxes and is ready to be started whenever required.

Once you have it imported into your Servant Manager it can be edited very easily simply by clicking on "Edit Rules File".

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

See the following thread for step by step instructions on downloading and importing a servant into your Bet Angel, or see image below on were to import it in your Servant Manager.

Hi,

Has anybody modified this Servant or added another one to green up?

Any advice or guidance on how to do this would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Matt

I'd advise using a separate servant to green up, near the off.
There are a few variations in the shared servant's section already which you could look at

Great work! How easy would it be to create a ‘lay first’ servant? Just create it opposite to the way that one was created?

Yes that's correct, should be very easy and only take a few mins if that
Just ensure you also reverse the amount of matched bets conditions etc

It should only not place the lay if the back hadn't fully matched, in which case you'll be in profit so have left that for the user to decide.

If that wasn't the case for you can you post the log?
