This is a basic Guardian automation file for use on Pre-Race Horse Racing markets.

To use this bot you'll need to be using the latest beta version of Bet Angel Professional V1.52
viewtopic.php?f=46&t=18643

The purpose of this bot is to look for the top and bottom of the traded range of the runners in row’s 1, 2 and 3, the bot will be armed and active during the final 5 minutes up till post time, then at post time it will green up just to ensure there are no bets taken in-play.

If the prices get's to the top of the range a £10 back bet is placed at the best reverse price, if not matched within 30secs it will be killed, if it is matched it will place a offset with greening bet at 1 tick with a stop loss at 3 ticks
If the prices get's to the bottom of the range a £10 lay bet is placed at the best reverse price if not matched within 30secs it will be killed, if it is matched it will place a offset with greening bet at 1 tick with a stop loss at 3 ticks

The above will be repeated so long as there are no unmatched bets in the market (ie, both the opening and offset bet have been matched before it can trigger again).

Defining a Range

The bot will define a range as follows;
When approaching the top of the range the traded volume at the best lay price must have more than £1000 traded but be less than 50% of the traded volume of the best back price, the 2nd and 3rd best lay prices must then have less than £1000 traded, on a ladder it would look like this

How it Works

Each back and lay rule uses three ‘Stored Value’ conditions to test for the range.

On the back bet rule, the first condition tests the traded volume at the lay price is less than 50% of the traded volume at the back price
The next two conditions, test that there is less than £1000 at the 2nd and 3rd best lay prices
The ‘Number of unmatched bets’ condition tests to ensure there are no unmatched bets on the selection
The ‘Fill/Kill bet time condition’ ensures another opening bet is not accidentally triggered between the opening bet being matched and the offset bet being placed (ie, it’s a safe guard to further ensure another opening bet can’t trigger until both the previous opening and offset bet have been matched)
The last condition tests there has also been at least £1000 been traded at the lay price (this prevents the rule triggering if it goes through the top of a range and into prices where only a few hundred has been matched.

On the lay bet rule the first condition tests the traded volume at the back price is less than 50% of the traded volume at the lay price
The next two conditions, test that there is less than £1000 at the 2nd and 3rd best back prices
The ‘Number of unmatched bets and ‘Time since Fill/Kill’ conditions are the same as described above for the back bet rule.
The last condition here is also identical to the one used in the back bet rule except it tests there has been at least £1000 traded at the back price for the same reasons detailed above.

To use the file just click on the following Scalp the Top and Bottom of Range.baf 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 them to any markets you have added into guardian.
Once you have it imported into your Guardian the stake size along with any other aspects of this file can be edited very easily by clicking on "Edit Rules 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.

Hi Dallas,

Is it OK to run this on Hcap and non Hcap races or just the latter ?

Cheers,

Mark

I'd go for just the H'cap and more competitive races where you get more defined and solid ranges.

Also, I'm sure you'd know but for others who may not be aware I'd change the values used in the bot, the ones I've used are just generic for the purposes of setting it up

Yes, thanks Dallas.... I have a bot that does something similar but by a completely different mechanism / conditions... Looking forward to see the differences in behaviour )

cheers for this Dallas - i can see a nice tweak here to change the rule lines to be signals (rather than straight bet placement rules). using that approach would allow you to pressure test the edge of these ranges a number of times before committing the outcome to a final bet...

again, nice starting point.

Hi how do I add the following rules:
-add a scratch trade to be taken if after my trade is matched for example back trade entered at top of range however the lay money increase more and back side money reduces so then I want to scratch trade or take 1-2 tick loss ?"

- Take back trade at top of range when money reduces on the lay side
- Take lay trade at bottom of range when money reduces on the back side and increase on the lay side
