BOT Specification


I'm not sure if this is possible. I'd like a dutching BOT primarily for the UK and Irish horses. 

1. be able to dutch on selected markets automatically.

2. 3 favourites at close to the off

3. be able to set a percentage of dutching liability back bet as profit (or use % back overound)

4. if can't get %profit before off don't bet (is this possible?)

5. be able to select min and max runners

6. be able to select race class

7. be able to select race type (handicap etc)

8. be able to set max and min back prices


I'm pretty new to this and if you have any advise that would be appreciated!!

    Bfexplorer offers automatic bot execution using tool Bot Executor. In Event Browser you open markets by creating your favorite events list, you can do so jut by one click, so for instance you set horse racing win markets from countries: GB and IE. Betfair returns maximal 1000 active markets, for horse racing betfair opens markets for 3 days, I think.

    You will get automatic execution, but only for limited number of markets. I also develop bespoke built apps allowing to reload markets, so able to run in 24/7 mode, but such app starts from 500 GBP.


    Yes, you will be able to set how many favorites you want to dutch, by default I set it to 3.


    When back dutching, you can set the total stake to back, from this stake is calculated reached profit, so percentage from stake can be calculated as well, if minimal set profit percentage is not reached, the dutch bets will not be placed.


    You will set bot time execution, relatively to official race start time, for instance 1 minute, if profit percentage is not reached dutch bets will not be placed.




    This information is for now not available in betfair api data, these days betfair prepares some updates:

    Race type will be added.

    From another befair web api I can get, distance, eligibility, going, classification, race type, but not race class.





    My price for such bot project is 180 GBP, time to deliver in 2-3 days.
