I think it is a rip off charging £50 to access a forum.  Yet another website trying to milk those interested in racing for every penny they can get.<br>Most people of a certain age such as myself are aware of the VDW method. There used to be regular letters in the Raceform Update on the subject.<br>VDW uses ability ratings.  These he defines as prize money won to date divided by number of races won.<br>He also looks at the last three race placings as a measure of how consistent a horse is.  The only problem I see with VDW is that if you want to use ability readings then you have to buy a Racing Paper for the information.  If you buy a Racing Paper you may as well study the form in more depth than look at a simplistic<br>view of ability ratings.:)
