Settings are set out in blocks of distinct operation on the app and are as follows:

Table Layouts

Editing and creating new table layouts is a very powerful feature of Bet Mover which allows it to be used in many different and distinct ways without being cluttered or confusing.

Bet Mover comes with default layouts that you can remove, add to or edit.

Changing current layouts

Select the layout you wish to amend from the dropdown. You can now edit, set as default or delete it.

  • Setting a layout as default sets it as the one that loads on loading a new race and when you load Bet Mover
  • Deleting a layout removes if from the list of options.
  • Editing allows you to change the data columns that display when its used.

Other options

  • 'Add New' lets you add new layouts - this creates a new layout that you can name and then go on to edit.
  • 'Reset' reverts the layouts back to the default layout set that ships with Bet Mover.

Adding and Editing a Layout

The layout you are editing or have created shows as a list of available data columns in their parent 'blocks'.

Changing current layouts

Select the blocks and columns you want to see for this layout and click save. You may now close the editor.

All your layouts show in the layout selector as show:

Odds Options

This option controls the way odds collected at set 'minutes' to post are displayed.

Settings:

Odds Type:

This can be set to WAP - the weighted average price.

Alternatively "Last Matched" can be selected, which is the last traded price on Betfair.

Movement:

The movement figure shown between selected odds in the odds columns can be calculated as the following:

Percentage, eg:

5.0 - 10.0 = 10 - 5 / 10 = 0.5 = 50%

50 - 100 = 100 - 50 / 100 = 0.5 = 50%

Book Difference, eg:

5.0 to 10.0 = (100 / 5 - 100 / 10) = (20 - 10) = 10

50 to 100 = (100 / 50 - 100 / 100) = (2 - 1) = 1

Ticks Difference, eg:

5.0 - 10.0 = (5,5.1,...9.6,9.8,10) = 30 Ticks

50 - 100 = (50,55,....,95,100) = 10 Ticks

These examples show how odds movements of 5 to 10 and 50 to 100 results in different movement metrics.

Betfair Options

You must be connected to Betfair to see these options, they control the Betfair odds and bets streaming feature for instant updates.

Prices

Show Book % on Best Prices

Shows the back and lay book percentages in the column header.

B2/L3 and L2/L3

The layout editor allows you to add two extra back and lay columns for betting, populated with prices based on the best current back and lay prices on the exchange.

These are custom price columns which you configure as required.

The prices are offset from the best price selected plus the number of ticks set.

Each custom column has a value and a select option to choose what that value means. You can choose:

  • Ticks Offset from Lay - adjusts the price based on the current lay price 
  • Ticks Offset from Back - adjusts the price based on the current back price
  • Fixed Price - The value you set a fixed price you enter in the value - please ensure this is a valid Betfair price

Sizes Available

When checked the amounts available for the current bets back and lay prices are shown under the prices.

Only Bets Ordered Via Bet Mover

The open and closed bets that Bet Mover shows, the P&L and cash out calculation can be based on:

All bets you have on the exchange - or - just the bets you have ordered via Bet Mover, thus leaving other bets alone. To restrict Bet Mover to self ordered bet - check this option on.

Custom Cash Out Percentage

In the layout editor you can choose to show column 'Custom Cash Out (CO)'. This column give you a custom cash out where only a percentage of your stake is cashed out. That percentage is chosen here.

Streaming Speed

The speed that Bet Mover streams information from Betfair. This can be configured to a speed as fast as 100 ms.

Real-Time In-Play Options

'Bet Mover' + 'Total Performance Data' provides Real-Time In-Play runner positions and speeds. These options give you control over what and how you want to consume this data.

These are basic instructions for reference, more details about in-play can be found in the Real-Time In-Play guide section. 

Alerts

Voice alerts can be selected in an range of 'characters'. These are quite distinct to any other beeps and bleeps you may have going on and will alert you to the race runner being nearly ready to set off and when the race has set off. This allows you to get on with other things without having to watch the runners parade and make their way to the start - although this can give good information about the runners.

Show

Map

The map view shows a birds eye view on a map of the course, the map tracks the runners keeping the leader centred and the map rotated so the runners always run left to right - this helps with screen space and are options on the map area.

Main Par Chart

The par chart shows a graph of the predicted race speed over the race distance. The runners speeds are plotted on this chart to give you a sense of the race speed at any point (fast, on par or slow). It provides an insight as to how the race will run and finish. This may have a bearing on how you view runners like fast finishers.

Main Par Chart Fatest 5%

Shows the fast line on the race par chart.

Main Par Chart 50%

Shows the on par line on the race par chart.

Main Par Chart Slowest 5%

Shows the slow line on the race par chart.

Velocity Chart

A line graph, of each runner's velocity (speed).

Silks

The silks show on the progress feed can be:

Cloth Colours - Traditional jockey cloths.

USA Style Colours - Solid colours with a contrasting number colour to make it easy to match the progress feed with the map.

Runner Par Rainbows (for Flat and Jumps)

Each runner has a rainbow graphic which is comparing the horses speed to the speed metric chosen. If the runner is on the red section then it's running relatively quickly, and blue relatively slowly. The rainbow can be ahead or behind the horse indicating very slow or fast.

These are useful to note if a horse has ran out too fast or running a slow race.

These are also useful to get an idea or the relative speeds of 2 or more runners when you're making a betting decision. 

The relative speed options you have are:

'None':

Don't show runner rainbows.

'Race Par':

Compares the runner speed to the predicted efficient speed for the race at that point in the race.

'Leader's Speed at Position' :

Compares the runner speed with the speed that the leader was running at at that point in the race. This can be useful for detecting the relative efficiency of jumping fences.

'Leader's Speed' :

Compares the runner speed with the speed of the current leader. Useful for detecting horses coming through, although 'Leader's Speed at Position' will still do this quite effectively.

Splits

The split times are show per runner in 1 column and are configurable to last 5 furlongs ran, last 10 furlongs run, last 15 furlongs run or "All" furlongs run. Please be aware that depending upon the length of the race and your chosen configuration, this feature can take up a significant amount of screen space.

Two metrics are displayed, in each column, for each runner - one on top of the other.

These metrics are configurable as follows:

Time Taken (s) - the actual time taken to run the split, in seconds.

Average Speed (mph) - the average speed of the split in MPH.

Order - where 1 is the fastest, 2 the second fastest etc.
