Betfair seem to be in the habit of just deleting malformed markets from their lists. So Guardian will still see the market and it's ID but it's not there. They then reform the market under a different ID.

So the only way to get the current one is to delete the old one, refresh the market list and add the market to Guardian again.

The great and wonderful BF, at times !

I suppose one could have an alert to ping if a race is suspended 'n' minutes (say 30mins+) before the time of race?

Don't forget Betfair briefly suspend a race whenever they take out a non-runner.

Yeah just logged in on the website to check out the upcoming markets

Had an error msg I've not seen before, status page was showing "major outage" at the time

Hopefully just one of them hiccups
