Help needed creating a bot with Betfair SP

I would like to know if it is possible to set up a bot with rules, as following:

Horse races at In Play

If any horse had a Betfair SP  of "x" odds or above (or below) then place a bet (back or lay) at "y" stake" if not matched kill the unmatched bet after "zz.zz".


Any help will be appreciated.

    Hi Stefan, Thanks for your time.

    However I could not find anything related to if "Betfair Starting prices" are "x" then... the close one was LTP, but is not the same.

    This bot code shows how to retrieve betfair SP prices. When market is turned at in play, so in code, the line 72, you can add what you want to.

     Thanks! Could you point me in some direction to set up the code in the software? I played with it (the software) some time ago, but definately I will need a refresh. I am not a code expert what so ever, but I unterstand a little and also I see great potencial in the code you have created. Is there anything in particular you think I will find useful to read or watch?
