Basically a made up order value (used on the website for ordering), updated randomly based on LTP but is normally left alone on the live shows.

So if i would like to keep the selections sorted from favorite to least favorite should i just use sortprority or should i use last traded price?

If you are talking UK racing, the sort order is defined by the tissue prices at market open. So sorting by LTP will rearrange according to any market moves.

Sorry if im asking very noob questions. But is not the favorite defined by the hourse offering the smallest lay price at any point in time? So sorting according to best lay price would be the best?

However one point I dont understand id when you say "tissue prices at market open" but sort priority is avaliable in the betfair data way before the market open? So if we talk about sort priority for betfair data is it still the same really?

Are you talking about the api data sort order, or just the sort order in Bet Angel automation?

Order of favouritism is based on the back price not the lay price.

You can define a sort order before the market opens, but until there is a market and prices it obviously has no effect.

Maybe if you explain what you are trying to do, people can give a better answer. The sequence/order/sort of the api data isn't usually an issue for 99.9% of users.
