Yes I concede that point. I soppose all of us to one degree or another use a ‘system’ wether it is to narrow down selections or stakes, as Matron says.
As far as flexibility is concerned I don’t think it creates doubt – quite the contrary, I think it’s essentially there if you have inner doubts about a selection that your ‘system’ has thrown up and gives you that get out clause that a true system junkie doesn’t have.
You have to take responsibility for the bets you decide to strike and I think in a way that someone who blindly follows a system (i.e. no flexibility to not bet) is in some way trying to shirk that responsibility by crying "The system made me do it!"
