Just to see if the money speaks the truth or with forked tongue.
I'll put up the top 10 afternoon race shorteners just before the first race every day and see how they perform.
Whoops a bit late.

Good idea Mike,but I don't trust the pp steamers,they represent it by the size of the price cut,not necessarily the percentage of backing. The oddschecker one is much more detailed and accurate.
For example,a horse could be in the PP one cos he was cut from 16/1 into 8/1 in a 2000 pound handicap at Wolverhampton,whereas a horse in a group 1 could be cut from 7/1 into 5/1 and not be on PP steamers because the price didn't cut as drastically,but would have attracted a huge amount of money more than the Wolverhampton race,and oddschecker's steamers does it like that,so more winners would probably be found.
Keep them coming. have no access to betting sites here so this is big help.
I agree, the trainers daughter stcking a fiver on a 50/1 shot in some rces will have an effect so I'll check out the oddschecker steamers
hmmm not sure I understand which value is the most important
Any sign of to-days steamers Mike. i too have no access to gambling sites at work and this is one way of getting them.
I'm using the Significance rating on oddschecker.

It's true,20 on a 100/1 in a weak race at Fairyhouse on a Tuesday evening could change it on PP. They have them in the order on oddschecker anyway.
I'll stick with Oddschecker from now on, the top 10 listed by "significance"

Seems to be going well, no prices or points system used though, any idea how well this is actually doing?
This is still largely academic, just seeing what the hit rate is. I'll have to get a bit more detailed SPs etc.
