It’s not a VDW Forum but we do have VDW Threads.
It is called Horse Race Base, quite a few of us on here use the software. There is a link on the Forum ( ArkRoyal could probably give you the link page on the forum ) for a free 7 day trial and no obligation to continue afterwards. Probably best to wait until Boxing Day or later to take up the offer. There hundreds of different filters that you can apply when researching, Big Race Trends already set up ie The Old Newton Cup and Lancashire Oaks are all set up to drill down into . Also a Ratings Tool where you can experiment with creating your own ratings. I can show you how to set up the Ratings Tool to create Ability Ratings. These can be applied to old races as they would have been before the race was run and of course Rate any race before it is run
I would recommend reading The Silver Lining (the book)- by far the best of the series, as many times as you see fit. It is easy to see where people, such as Lee (myself included) have developed their M.O. The best stuff is from other writers' contributions IMOHi S sh82
There are plenty of VDW threads and posts, including Golden Years , PK, Two Method Of Rating, Second Numerical Picture and Pegwell Bay Races.
Yes it is better if you apply whatever your take is on VDW with Pre Race Examples as the OLD VDW races have been done over and over again. Seeing as G HAll and GR Lincoln from the RF Update Forum were VDW writing in to praise himself, it is best to take his example races as backfitted to suit. The idea of Class, Form, consistency (Consistency of form may be hidden) and ability To handle going, distance and course are still very relevant today, so nothing wrong with the Ideas tht VDW put forward, just his integrity having claimed to have been part of the Free Dutch boys during the war and recovering in a U.K. Hospital for his injuries sust during the war as he was too young to have fought in the war and was still a School Boy during those years.
You could check out Lees Bets (His take on VDW ) as these have been analysed and most were posted Pre race by Lee, Byron is a good example of Consistency being not as straight forward as adding up the form figures to find consistency. See Winner in a Race

Thanks formtheory . It was very indulgent. Hope yours went well. Yes, Mr Carrey gives a good lesson on card marking and spotting horses on the boil. Good luck with today's pick. I don't back on heavy ground myself.
