If more than one is selected, the win percentages are added up and the total is used for the purposes of ranking. You can change your selection of the going here when you know what the official going is and building the tissue then. You will need to do this for each course at a time on the day as they will all likely be different and you can use this also when checking back on past results.

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 normal output sheet where the MinBSP column is the default final column. There are 21 criteria to choose from and will give you more information on each horse that you may want to view.
On the image below you can see I have added to view any Headgear each horse is carrying, the Jockey Name, the weight in pounds the horse is carrying plus the BSP and BSP Position. The BSP is explaned below the image in more detail but haveing these additional fields may just help decide on a selection. If you see the horse you may want to back is being ridden by a Jockey who you are not aware of, or if you chose to show the stall number (Draw) for flat races, a selection may be drawn out very wide and would suggest that despite all the calculations, it may be wise not to back that one today.
BspPos and SpPos
When you are looking back at past results, you will more than likely want to select either the BSP, the BSP place price, plus the finishing positions. There are two to choose from for 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.
