Yep - on the nail - the great unknown - but you have to take somethings on trust or you would'nt leave the housemy point being...... you can tot up as many figures and facts and whatevers you like....but if the trainer
doesnt think the horse is ready.....then he almost certainly wont be trying to win and will 'almost' certainly lose.
His money is not from horse racing - yes it adds to the pot@mick Too true - the old Gummy forum proved this - hints galore that if the secrets were revealed racing as we know it would cease to exist - this is a direct quote from a poster "vanman".
So they have either given up or are counting their loot in their cayman hideaways....
If we accept that G Hall lived in a slightly shabby bungalow that would indicate a modicum of success to pay for that but hardly McManus league.
HIS magnificent mansion in Martinstown cost in excess of €20 million but that will be dwarfed shortly when JP McManus’s new holiday home is completed in Barbados.www.limerickleader.ie
I believe Lee has a nice place in the country but does this mean it was VDW that paid for it?
I certainly feel less stressed now that I have quit the search for the grail as it was just making me feel frustrated and stupid.
i'll have a speculative fiver on Thorntoun Lady ;-)Okay lets have a go and see how VDW does on a live race.

I may have discovered the holy grail here so watch this space.
heh....... simply....cos it travelled 285 miles to be there....as i said.... speculativeWhy are you backing Thornton Lady, it would not qualify as a selection under VDW rules ?
By the way, I'm not playing with real money
Apropos of nothing in particular, this forum has been going for over 6 years, and we have several posters who have provided pre race selections together with p/l figures going back years rather than just months.Tbh @Thomas there would have been no difficulties because Tony Peach was already in touch with him via phone and could have made his pre race selections available by this means.At the time i am sure that the Sports Forum readers would have been happy and willing to accept Tonys validation.
Also back in those days the Royal Mail was far more reliable , and used time stamping so a letter posted am day of race would have shown an am time stamp and date when delivered.
I’ve cracked it, this season Finley Marsh the jockey on Seaforth is showing a profit of £22.87 on The AW.
The Sun tipped it.
Lto it was an 80/1 shot and finished 5th of 12 runners and was an 8/1 shot this time and won.
He only had to travel 70 miles to the course so didn’t have to set off too early.
It was a stand out bet really.
I've cracked itWell that's the hard bit done - now make up an impressive reason why Seaforth was the obvious choice and you've got VDW cracked
How did VDW account for a horse that won but was not expected to win by the trainer. If the trainer had a plan in mind the h'capper's reaction may put the trainers plans on hold for the time being..then he almost certainly wont be trying to win and will 'almost' certainly lose.
