    While scanning the Raceform Update I came across the Dowstian method – named after Robert Saunders Dowst,  it applies the virtues of accessing consistent form profiles to gain decent profits. Independently tested by a reader it produced good profits at value prices.

    The system as stated:

    a)  Must have won at least one-third of their starts;

    b)  Must haver been placed (first three) in at least halve of their starts;

    c)  Must be running against horses with no similar strike<br>- rate/money consistency (average prizemoney won).

    From 192 bets…44% won…with an average price of 2/1.

    From the outset it can be seen that good profits can be achieved by following the prime performers. Indeed it seems you can tap into the the top 20% of horses – ensured in the knowledge that 80% of all races are won by them.

    Quality speaks volumes – as they say – and in no uncerain terms it can utter profits too.

    The system draws similarities to VDW and his complex principles, though forwards a new direction of clarity and simplicity.

    Additionaly Sporting Life’s search engine allows quick access to any horses form profile and could be utilised if desired.

    All the best to everyone over the Easter break and good luck on Monday.<br>

    Hi Peter ,<br>I also picked up on this one and likewise made the VDW connection . I seem to remember that this approach would have pre-dated VDW,  and as it seems to highlight "consistent " runners I thought it may have been an inspiration to him .

    I have been sorting out selections with a degree of success and would , at this stage , not discount it as a logical process / starting point .

    I’m not necessarily a lazy sod , but were you intending to post selections , thus giving me one less job ?;)

    Thanks for putting this on the board ,

    Cheers , Terry

    Another one from the same source  and worth further attention as a starting point : <br>Postmark : Highest rated for latest , best and adjusted .<br>Postdata : Ticks in all boxes .

    Terry, there’s a cracking system called The Ease Of Life<br>that uses the clear top rated selections as you’ve stated, it costs only 4 pounds and is available from surewin racing club. They have a website – surewin.co.uk. I believe its one of the best value systems on the market.

    Hi Peter,<br>             I’m looking for a good system that’s not all short prices – I can’t find "The Ease of Life" system on <br>Surewin’s site – Do you have to join up to access it?

    Regards

    Phil

    The Ease Of Life system was one of Surewins first systems relayed in its magazines.

    Originally it was intented as a high strike rate system – it claimed a 50% s.r, with an average price of 2/1. This may be a little optimistic, when I tested it did achieve around the 40% –  so still good. I am going to follow the system this year when I have a decent betting bank.

    I’d recommend backing all selections within the forecast price rank of 2/1 to 15/2 inclusive and within the first three of the Racing Post betting forecast to gain an even higher average return.

    You can get newsletters from Surewin, they are delivered every fortnight and are crammed with systems, some good, some bad, though some are excellent.

    These are some of the best (with three years results*)<br>in my opinion…

    Beaten Favourites  4.00

    Class Of The Field  4.00

    The American Trilogy  2002   20.00 *

    EOL as stated 4.00

    The Triple Crown 2002 20.00 *

    I’ve been through countless systems these are some of my favs in terms of ease of use and long term potential.

    The newsletters from Surewin never seem to stop once ordered and are delivered in A4 size so not very discreet! ( If thats an issue ).

    In addition one system that looks very classy can be obtained by buying The Complete Manual Of Racing and Betting Systems – David Duncan. Its called The Best Of The Best Form Plan – it retails at the # 12.00 mark.

    Hope this has saved you time and money,

    All the best.

    <br>You’ll have to order previous systems by adding the name and price of the system on the order form, or a seperate piece of paper.

    One website that looks decent quality, works from VDW ratings. It can be found at http://www.gummyracing .co.uk by clicking on the section in the top right link. I may follow this allthough Vans ways are complex (to me at least) they are prized by many…
