From Bet Angel forum: Automation - Only trigger if horse is 1st or 2nd using signals
I have my back and lays applied to a guardian nominated selection.
In tight races where there is prices such as 5.1, 5.2, 5.5, 5.7 I notice the favourite tends to jump around a lot as the prices are so close together.
I want to create a signal where the rule is only triggered if the nominated horse is 1st or second - I don't want to change selection to order of favouritism as I’m targeting specific horses.
So the strategy is to check if selected horse is still the first or second favourite and execute user’s strategy on such selection.
Bot trigger accepts two parameters: AllowedPositions and StartTimeSpan.
In my test I executed the bot trigger “Check Position Bot Trigger” on two selections/horses, and at set start time, the bot checked a horse position, and as the only one was still in 1 or 2 position, my action has been executed only on one horse.
This kind of strategy can be executed using the tool: Bot Executor for Selections.
