There seems to be a problem with some alerts not being emailed to members. I have told the hosts and they are investigating.
If you are seeing that Lurker has appeared under your name then please take a look
here to see why.
Sorry for any problems caused to those that were trying to access the forum earlier today
There was an authentication issue between the webservers and the database servers we are on!
Many Thanks to those that emailed me to let tme know of the issue.
I was reading some old VDW posts and "First Division" was mentioned.
It was stated that it could be argued he wasn't a selection but was being used to make an important point.
I have a list of 103 horses given by VDW, but First Division doesn't appear among them.
Does anyone know in which...
It's been a long time since I did any of this and I reckon it'll show too ...
Started looking at the Cambridgeshire today but swiftly began to disappear up my own back passage - I'd forgotten how difficult I always found it trying to apply the VDW stuff.

Hi Everyone !
I have decided to begin a blog, posting my bets and thoughts regarding the races I will look at.
This will hopefully motivate me, and push me forward.
The Betting Bank start will be 130 pts, I shall bet 3% each bet.
I know there are mixed views when it comes to V.D.W but I have...
The form has settled down, the going is consistent and there are few debutantes so all the making of a lucky patch.
Today I looked at the 3.50 ascot and have it between Novelist, Very Nice Name, Hillstar and Trading Leather but the current going is against N and VNN which...
Over the years I have read so much on this subject and still can’t make up my mind one way or the other but what really annoys me about it is that whenever it is discussed it normally degenerates into a session of name calling and various allegations of untruths.
Some people allege they have...
