Multiple faves question

Post by etishere » Sat Jul 08, 2017 7:58 am

Hello, I am a newbie to this product.

I have a question and hope someone out there can guide me in the right direction...

What I am trying to do is set up a Tab so that it does the following
30 secs before the race starts

if the fave is $1.00 or more than the 2nd fave, bet the first fave and stop.
If the 2nd fave is less than $1.00 from the 1st fave and is $1.00 or more than the 3rd fave, bet the 1st 2 faves.
If the 3rd fave is less than $1.00 from the 2nd fave, bet the 1st 3 faves.

I have selected the 1st 3 faves in the automatic ranking selections and allow multiple runners.
In the market tab I have set the max range at $7.00 as I dont want to go over those odds.
In the runners - dist etc area I am totally confused as to what I should put in here to discriminate between the runners.
In the odds ranges tab I have set a max of $7.00 for each of the 1st 3 runners and set the min as
1st fave $1.01 2nd fave $2.20 3rd fave $3.30

It is not picking up the first fave under any of the conditions and sometimes, but rarely, picks up the 2nd and 3rd faves.

Any guidance most welcome and appreciated.
Thanks in advance

That is not possible.

You are actually trying to run three separate systems:

1. if the fave is $1.00 or more than the 2nd fave, bet the first fave and stop.
2. If the 2nd fave is less than $1.00 from the 1st fave and is $1.00 or more than the 3rd fave, bet the 1st 2 faves.
3. If the 3rd fave is less than $1.00 from the 2nd fave, bet the 1st 3 faves.

Each of those systems would need to be on separate betting tabs.
