These settings files for your One-Click screen are for use on horse racing markets, there key features include displaying each runners real-time GPS Position, Distance to Leader, Speed travelling (in mph) and the average speed over the previous rolling 5secs and 10 secs in custom columns ', distance to finish (in meters), percentage of race remaining.

It also displays a race meter progress bar which also uses real-time GPS data to show the actual progress of the race

To help see the positions and distance to leader It also uses Value Based Colour Settings, to change the cell background colour of the front three positions and a yellow to white colour Gradient settings to see the distance to the leader for each runner.

Value Based Colour Settings are also used to help show which runners are currently travelling the fastest and which have the greatest average speeds over the last 5secs and 10secs

Other information show include; Jockey names, Trainer named, Form and SP


When the settings files are used your one-click screen will appear like this

TIP

In the first image of the previous post the selections have been sorted in order or their Position, this is done simply by clicking the column header you want to sort by

If you change the sort order but then want to return it to its default order you can click either the 'Silks' or 'Micro Chart' column headers

Would advise being careful if jumping onto the TPD bandwagon. I was in a telegram chat yesterday just looking at what was on offer and upon scrolling through the past month or so, I came accross a large number of occassions where the chip was put into the wrong horse saddlecloth (or similar). I deleted the chat as it was enough for me to make a judgement that TPD isn't quite ready yet for what I would use it for.

This had catastrophic outcomes for some users as you can imagine. Anyone automating off of TPD should just be very careful.

You should easily be able to test/mitigate that in your automation

It happens less than a Betfair issue, so maybe reassess your priorities there. You can trap errors in automation as well.

No system can be perfect, but my experience with TPD has been very good over the many months we have been actively involved with it. So there is no going back for me. The technology and reliability has improved a lot since Turftrax days and it's been hugely beneficial in me forming profitable inplay strategies.

It's so much better triggering on some aspect of a race or another rather than just odds, or manually. I've used the data to build some useful models as well. It's a big leap forward.

Really excited about testing this today!

Just one question, I can't seem to see the Race Progress bar (that says 34% on your image above). I've followed all the steps but the bar isn't there. Is this something that is only available when the race goes live? I expected to see a space for it even if no data is populated at the minute.

Here's my screenshot, I've highlighted where the bar should go:

There's a page dedicated to the Race Progress Meter on the Bet Angel Settings screen. It's switched off by default, but you can choose whether to always show it, or only show when in-play. It also allows configuration of the colours used and whether to show the percentage label etc.

Brilliant thanks, I'd got it set to "Show only when In-play and progress info available"

...So basically it was doing exactly what it should have.

Cheers

I agree.
A lot of people are excited way too early.
Testing the service and i must admit, its not un-common to see a horse showing 20 meters away from the leader and a second later showing 5 meters away.
Turbo horse. ;)
