COLIN DAVEY METHOD
In an effort to save gullible people a lot of money here is the Colin Davey Method for which he charges £96 per month and gives the tips out on a premium rate phone number (that's when there is a tip). This information was originally posted by Bob on the Sham Tipster board on 26.9.00 and I reproduce it word for word.
The "Method" is summarised in twelve "rules" as follows:
10 runners or less;
top trainer and jockey;
first 5 in betting;
class C and above races only;
ability (on VDW basis) 40+ and 20 points clear;
must have won most valuable race from among those in race under consideration;
must be among three horses in race whose last races were the highest class ratings (again VDW basis);
selection must be distance winner or have run over distance on last run;
selection must not carry more than 10lb above weight carried last run;
selection should not have been beaten by more than 5l on last run;
selection should be running within 28 days of last run;
all selections identified by the above 11 to be backed.
The "Method" comprises nine pages in addition to the summarry, which give (mainly) useful guidance on what each of the rules means. Useful for those unfamiliar with the VDW approach, but otherwise the rules are clear even as summarised above.
So thats it folks the fantastic system that allegedly produces 80% strike rate at average odds of 5/2 (if you believe that then you will believe anything). For those of you unfamiliar with VDW see the information on this site under the Van Der Wheil Method on the home page.
