Additional Fields, BspPos and SpPos

The Additional Fields selector allows you to choose any number of form data to show to the right hand side of the output sheet. This will give you more information on each horse that you may want to view. This could be the Jockey name, the Run Style number, the weight the horse is carrying and much more. This may just help decide on a selection or can just provide more info on a race.

BspPos and SpPos

When you are looking back at past results, you can choose some other info from the Additional Fields. These are the BSP, the BSP place price, plus the finishing positions. There are two of these for the finishing positions which are BspPos and SpPos. 

Both show the same finishing positions but with the horses that are placed in a race highlighted in pink, they highlight the places differently, depending on whether you want to show the horses that were placed using Betfair place rules or the bookmakers traditional place rules that take into account the number of runners and non runners.

You may want to use the SpPos if you are looking for a way of finding Placepot bets as an example.
