this is why Hong Kong racing is the best in the world

Forget the petty politics, forget the over-racing, just give punters the best possible information so they can bet more on local racing. Develop the web content even further with all the replays, horse weights, free data archives etc. And now you can even build your own customised page with reports, news feeds, anything you need!


HK horse racing embraces web 2.0


myHKJC provides users the convenience of obtaining a variety of horse tips in a consolidated content module, where they can review the horses analysis, forecast running positions of individual horses, statistics-based tips, and recommended horses.

Users can review memorable racing moments with photos and clips in their ‘photo album’. By activating e-alerts, racing fans can receive e-mail reminders of their favourite horses, trainers and jockeys once available.

....

If only they encouraged overseas wagering by broadcasting online... Unfortunately, you can only open accounts with the HKJC if you live there.

  2. cheers for that, must have changed in the last few years. If they ever worked out their differences with UK bookies (ie let them bet into the HK pools) and let it be screened over here, it would take off...

lay the field - my favourite racing strategy

Dabbling with laying the field in-running at various prices today, not just one price, but several in the same race. Got several matched in the previous race at Brighton, then this race came along at Nottingham. Such a long straight at Nottingham makes punters often over-react and think the finish line is closer than it actually is. As you can see by the number of bets matched, there was plenty of volatility in this in-play market. It's rare you'll get a complete wipe-out with one horse getting matched at all levels, but it can happen, so don't give yourself too much risk...

Last year's impressive winner who doesn't get the 3yo weight advantage this time. Won first up at Meydan in March but has run fourth, third, fourth in the big set weights staying races in England and Ireland, never quite making it as the next big staying star. While running close behind Stradivar…

Westow Stakes - York 16/5/19

The sun was out for a glorious opening day of the meeting, and races down the straight appeared to have no concerns about draw bias. Thursday's card has a few higher profile races but this 3yo sprint is worth watching closely, tomorrow and for future form.

£50k, Listed & Class 1, 3yo, 5f
York 1605

Soldier's Call - flying machine, winning four of six starts in Britain last season, running third in the Prix L'Abbaye, beaten a neck at WFA then finished sixth as joint favourite in the BC Juvenile Turf Sprint. Has plenty on these on ratings, but life's rarely that simple with unexposed 3yos early in the season.

Broken Spear - more exposed than most of these and well beaten by Garrus first up. Missed Chester last week, probably due to the rain (or a poor draw). Pass.

Charming Kid - won at this meeting last season but has been a little erratic ever since. Well beaten on AW Championships Day, appears to be a few lengths off these.

Garrus -…
