Added option to TPD preferences to display velocity chart on each runner and optional course par for comparison.

Added option to TPD preferences to display each horse's box on grid in different colour (matches colours on satellite map)

Added option to TPD preferences to display course par chart when satellite map displayed.

Added option to TPD preferences to display par line. A purple line on the grid will indicate where the horse's progress would be if ran perfectly to course par.

Added 3 new metrics to TPD data:-

Velocity fluctuation
a measure of the consistency of the velocity line and refreshed every second. A high number may indicate that the horse is not performing well.

Velocity error
an algorithmic calculation which results in a number highlighting how ‘off par’ the horse has run from the start of the race.
A LOW number here is preferable and zero would be perfect – however that is highly unlikely to ever happen. A low OP is around 50 and high around 100.
It is highlighted that VE (off par) is not reporting the horses positions, it is reporting how close to race par the animal has been running. The horse behind the leader could be running too slowly to par and therefore have a high number. VE is an absolute error value for speed against par speed. It will be high for horses running too slow and horses running too fast.

Cadence error
Cadence corresponds to the horse’s rhythm and it is highlighted that stride length and speed are not taken into account in the calculation because a high cadence (high number of strides per second) could also mean a shorten stride length and consequently a low speed. A low number is best.

Optionally colours can be set for good, neutral and bad values when displayed as custom columns.

Market Replay

Fixed bug where selection display order not sorted as per live markets for Soccer, Tennis and Cricket markets.

Fix bug where historic balance not showing in cell I2 in Excel

Sports betting software from Gruss Software

The strength of Gruss Software is that it’s been designed by one of you, a frustrated sports punter, and then developed by listening to dozens of like-minded enthusiasts.

Gruss is owned and run by brothers Gary and Mark Russell. Gary discovered Betfair in 2004 and soon realised that using bespoke software to place bets was much more efficient than merely placing them through the website.

Gary built his own software and then enhanced its features after trialling it through other Betfair users and reacting to their improvement ideas, something that still happens today.

He started making a small monthly charge so he could work on it full-time and then recruited Mark to help develop the products and Gruss Software was born.

We think it’s the best of its kind and so do a lot of our customers. But you can never stand still in this game and we’ll continue to improve the software if any more great ideas emerge.
