    Hi class tells

    the VDW method was devised in the pencil and paper era, with ease of use a priority.  In our computer age I am sure we, the forum members, can come up with some nifty variations.

    I am hoping to use the VDW approach because it has predictive value and helps to keep you focused.

    Another advantage will be that it could give members a common, purposeful, reference point.

    class tells .. it really matters what units you use to create your price.

    If your not used to pricing races, you should use a basic points system.

    If you are reasonably good with maths but don’t have a clue about horses you should use Bayesian Inferencing or Implied Odds.

    If you are a fully mature horse racing expert you will need to use pounds.

    … you have to match up your own ability and knowledge with what you want to do, that’s the best way.
