I would like to start using keyboard macros to trade in-running. I want to use saddle cloth numbers but realise that I can't just use number order as order will be broken by non-runners.

For someone who has only a basic understanding of Excel how is the best way to go about doing this? Should I learn VBA and use Excel to trade or is there a way to do this via BA Keyboard shortcuts?

Any advice much appreciated. :)

I use servants for this, maybe give them a look first - takes 1 cog out of the wheel by having to use excel allowing you to key in the actions directly to BA.

This only works for cloths 1-9 of course :-)

Thanks for the reply. But how do you set the servant to trigger using your keyboard? Using BA keyboard shortcuts or something else?

Also how do you set a servant to trigger by saddle cloth?

Yes this can be done via BA shortcuts.

I only use these for the flat racing as you can use them to lay slow starters from stall numbers 1-9 using the 'Stall Draw' condition. I've not explored using it for 'Runner numbers' - not sure if there is a condition
