I know there was a lot of interest in VDW in he 70's and 80's in the letters page of the handicap book

Gordon Hall aka VDW of Cromwell Crescent, Market Harborough passed away in July 2016.

Was it ever really proven that is was all a hoax and this guy from Cromwell Crescent was really VDW?

I don't know what to believe but Gordon Hall lived at the same address as VDW and he also wrote under the name GR from Lincs.

That is all I know sunset cristo I guess by your handle that you were a follower of the method.

My understanding was that it was an after-timing con. I dont believe he ever gave a winner pre-race.

As I'd no idea who VDW was etc etc....I read this from link above.


Non-H/C races are far "simpler" than H/C races.......and there are some comments that are relevant..............but there are "systems" for NON-H/C races out there that probably work very well with the "simpler" race types.

H/C races are far more "interesting" puzzles to rate thoughDevilGrin

Good post though.

After timing or not.
Who else has ever given out so many working examples of how a selection was arrived at?

We can take it or leave it, but he did give an awful lot of racing knowledge away for free.
I don't recall anyone else coming even close to going into details like he did.
