Regarding Take SP (price dependent):

I presume (?) it isn't a 'proper' SP bet with a price limit, and is actually a Take SP bet (i.e. it can be cancelled) so if I have a price dependent SP Back bet with a fixed price of greater than 6, what does the 6 represent? How does BA know if the SP is going to be greater than 6? Is it based off a rolling Projected SP starting at race time? Something else?

TIA

Its to give you some flexibilty to specify which of your open bets you wish to mark as Take SP instead of the sledgehammer 'Take SP All'
In your example only the open back bets over 6 will be marked as Take SP - they'e still yours to cancel before the start and they'll still only get SP whatever that happens to be.

Thanks - but what does 'over 6' mean in this context?

If I have several open back bets - at 5.5, 5.8, 7.4 and 8.0 only the the 7.4 and 8.0 will be marked as Take SP
