• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • There seems to be a problem with some alerts not being emailed to members. I have told the hosts and they are investigating.
  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting


    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

tbh - altho i've not really looked deeply into this yet, there's simply (imho) too few data points to make any assumptions from. the original premise was based on some sort of *wisdom of the yard*. however, i don't think this is actually the case. as i mentioned before, I'm of the opinion that some of these lower odds STEAMERS are probably over backed and may present a good opportunity to lay a select few. however, context is obviously key and I would be looking for a couple of close contenders in the market for this type of activity.

one other aspect that is worth delving into, is the amazing black box of stats that sportinglife package up under the covers when loading their racecard pages. you can literally grab the OC bookies prices, stats on the recent runs for each selection etc, etc. in short, you can pull this data down pretty much 1-2 mins before each race and use your bot to determine if there's any value to be had (backing or laying). in the lower class races in particular, there are some very uncertain odds flying about. I'm sure you'll be able to work it out, but here's the hidden api starting point for todays races: https://www.sportinglife.com/api/horse-racing/racing/racecards/2020-12-28. from this, you can get the full cargo data for each race on the day (race_summary_reference.id) which is presented as fully formed json also. anyway, just another little additonal tool for the box...

TBH I thought I would just run with it to see if anything came of it - and it has as you can also see some possible laying opps. Not had time to write any code yet but will do over next few days!

amazing bit of onfo on the API .... I take it i need a live race to see the full picture

this was today's file (this has been slightly altered in format to suit how i use it, but is generally a mapping of the json supplied by SPL).
