A SURPRISING e-mail from David Power of Limerick, nearly a year ago persuaded eighty-years-old TONY PEACH to take time out from retirement to give some more VDW power to the punters How? . David wrote "I told my late brother Pat Power that if Rough Quest won the Grand National in 1996 his SYSTEM was a "Red Hot" winner. His brother who had written in my book VDW: THE SILVER LINING how he had found winners to make £200,000 told me 'IT'S NOT A SYSTEM BUT A METHOD'.
As a result Tony contacted David and the two of them compiled 'The Powers of VDW' which contains successful interpretations of the Van der Wheil method as well as some up-to-date evaluations plus many more of Pat's appraisals that could not be included in The Silver Lining.
