Builder – Updates


Many of you have emailed me reporting bugs or suggesting improvements to the Builder...

Obviously, I will, at some point, be getting back to you all individually but...

It's just that it's getting far too warm to work today.


I've got a list of updates that I'm planning for next week...

I've also got one (or, maybe four) more System(s) to publish and then I'll be spending some time away from the computer over the weekend.

I'll still be around; I just won't be doing Builder updates until Monday morning.

If you think that something else should be added to the Builder...

Apart from what is listed below...

Then please let me know as soon as possible.

What's next?

1). Place Stats - I shall be hiding the Place stats from the Builder Results page.

There will be a button on the Builder page (below the Show Monthly stats, Show Course Stats) should you wish to see the Place stats.

This will speed the Results page up dramatically.

2). Race Type Stats - I shall also be adding another button to all you to see the Results by basic Race Type (i.e. Flat, AW, NH Chase etc.)

This will allow you to filter down a basic system to see where it works best.

3). Race Age - The Race Age will be added to the Builder.

I can understand why many of you want and need this but...

Whilst I can display the Race Age, I certainly won't be able to add the functionality to show only 4 year old in a 3 to 4 year old race.

4). Systems Page - The Systems Page will be changed so that it displays the newest systems first.

I shall also try to create another, almost identical Systems Page (there will be a link to it at the top of the existing System Page) which will allow you to tick boxes and select multiple systems in one go.

5). Trainer Course Win Percentages - The Trainer Course Win Percentages will be added to the normal PDF and, also, the Builder.

6). Delete Systems Bug - There is a bug which stops you deleting systems. This will be fixed early next week.

7). Bet Types - The Bet Types button will be operational from about Thursday but...

Only if someone can tell me if it is possible to do Place Only bets at the bookmakers.

This will, allow you to use the Builder to research Laying and Dutching systems.

Once this is done I shall be putting a Bet Type description on the Systems page.

And there may end up being different Systems pages for different Bet Types so that layers can go to their page etc.

Obviously, there will still be the existing Systems Page.

And, while I think of it; I shall be adding a text field to the Builder so that you can add any notes to explain to someone how to use your system. I shall be contacting all of you who have Public systems so that I can get the text so that I can update that field.


Now, I may have missed off some of the updates that you have asked for.

If so, then please let me know and I'll add them to my list.

I hope that you find the Builder useful.

If you have any ideas for improving it (or find any difficulties in using it) then please let me know.

My kindest regards
