Necessity?

Do we really need the "Turnover" columns?
Do they help anyone?
After all, it's just the number of hits multiplied by $50–.... I'd rather see the trainers in my results.

The 'Turnover' column is there in preparation for when we switch on the Lay System functionality.

For Win or Back betting it is only $50 if Flat Staking is selected. For Proportional Staking it obviously varies relative to the price of the runner.

The key thing is that Lay betting requires a 'different' thought pattern to Back betting, when it comes to Turnover (which is why the Turnover column has been added). Unfortunately we did not have enough screen real estate, so something had to go (in this case the Trainer column).

Why not just let it happen then worry about if it gets too confusing. I cant see any problem in how they do things now and dont envisage I will when the Lay systems ability comes online.

Gee, one small change is certainly creating a bit of discussion. The reason for removing Trainer as opposed to Jockey, was that the Trainer does not generally change from run to run, whereas the Jockey can.

Anyway, the 'buck' for design considerations obviously rests with Punting Form and we can only suggest seeing what you think when the total package gets rolled out in the near future.

A lot of development has already been undertaken and will be switched on once we have Betfair SP Data fully operational. Unless we have any major bugs with what has been released already, we will happily take that as a 'win'.

LAY SYSTEMS

G'day G–man,

just quickly, there's one called "4 and 5".....and I have one called "LAY LADY LAY".
2 lay systems, but totally different...….one with heaps of action, the latter, not so.
Just depends on what you're after.
I'm sure there'll be more …… maybe check out the "ALL TOP SYSTEMS" section.

Cheers,
JD.

Bragging Your Systems

Thought I'd drop a line or 3 to add to the hype around the LAY systems being created.

RE: "SIMON MILLER" system.

On face value, when I check out the system's last 100 hits, it appears the system is a BACK system. Surely, it should be a LAY system?
Maybe the owner is just laying all their hits?

My question to PF...……. Is there a chance you would consider separating the 2 types? For example, with one click of the mouse, we would be directed to all the LAY systems, instead of spending time, sifting through all systems to find one we like.

Up until recently, I had nothing to do with LAY systems, but I decided to have a crack at one. I ended up with:
"LAY LADY LAY"
It's early days, so I'll keep my eyes on it and see how it goes.

Any comments/thoughts (good or bad) are welcome.

Cheers to all,
JD

"Bets Sheets" and "Today's Bet Sheet" missing qualifiers?

From another thread:
Harlem paid $31 SP (see Racing Australia website for official SP).
Looking at the System results on the day after the race (Sunday) would have been too early for Tote prices to have been available in our results database; that is why the Best of SP, NSW and Vic would have been shown as $31.00. System results update for any new data (new to our database) for a period up to 2 days later. If you check that system for that runner, you will find it now accounts for the Tote Prices as well.

As for any other issues mentioned, there is a high probability that similar explanations apply. A lot of information comes into our database at different times, which must then be transferred to other areas, cached etc etc.
