        In Play betting is a point of difference that Betfair can offer their clients. Having applications that can level the playing field against on track players can only be good.

          I have a couple little pain points,

          Can we have market name and selection names returned in the stream? Having to make repeated calls out to listMarketCatalogue just to grab the names is annoying. This can leave UI's in an incomplete state when the stream pushes new markets and you must then request the names from lmc - its also not an insignificant problem to solve if you want to batch a request for multiple markets at the same time and have it be fault tolerant to network errors. Adding the names to the MarketDefinition and RunnerDefinition would be a very insignificant increase in payload size. But still if this was a major concern then a field in the MarketDataFilter could be used to control this behavior and allow latency sensitive applications to keep the current behavior. Its also seems worth noting that the pro historic data already does exactly this, with the MarketDefinition and RunnerDefinition both having a name field but otherwise being identical to the stream data.

          With the stream having a market limit of 200 markets it can be hard to (or sometimes impossible) to subscribe to a whole country/eventTypeID, this mainly happens when a few days markets are loaded in advance (AU 4339 is bad for this). I would love to have a filter which controls how far out to return markets, ie only return markets whose start time is in the next 24 hours. A bump to the default 200 market limit would also be nice.

          Cheers
