i'd like to be able to press i.e Number pad 6 and it lays horse saddle cloth 6 at the best available price. 0r Press Number Pad 2 and it lays horse saddle 2 and so on.

it seems to fall over when say i.e horse saddle cloth 3 is scratched or I sort ladder order/one click in odds order.

Is this possible via rules editor or will i need VBA to sort this via a spreadsheet?

Thanks.

Use the keyboard shortcuts to trigger a servant.

This will mean you can assign a keystroke to pretty much any action.

That part I have no problem with. What context option do I select i.e in the list of options there appears to be no select via saddle cloth number?

I have selected betfair order option and works perfectly if there is no scratching's or its not sorted in order of fav odds .. Then it becomes a raffle what horse is laying. I've also noticed that when its laying the wrong horse the servant light appears on the correct runner. which gives me hope i can do this with vba coding??

Can i upload one example ?

'Saddle cloth' is a stored value variable in Guardian under 'store a value as text'.

Here’s the first one, you just need to copy this file and follow the sequence, Saddle 2 . Change the condition to 2 and so on. You would then add them to a hot key.
You would probably be best to make the (Saddle all) rule in to a guardian file and run it in guardian, otherwise it has to trigger every time and you don’t really need that.

The file will lay £2 at the reverse price, you will also need to change that.

Be careful when u test the above.

I copied the exact file into guardian, and applying the rules file to a race, immediately sends a lay on horse number 1.

My understanding of how to access the saddle_cloth stored data is making my head hurt - both as a servant and in guardian.

I would suggest u test in practice or greatly amend the conditions while testing.

Good luck

I'm having the exact same problem, did you ever get it working? Been wrestling with it for days and can't figure out what I'm doing wrong 🤦‍♂️
