Australian punters will need more help to be betting on HK races

The readily available 'tips' were on the money in a sense -- we need more help to get familiar with a new venue.

It does make sense to be very wary of the top jockeys -- moira, purton, shinn, + a few et als -- not riding for fun!

It was disappointing that Racenet did not provide their usual 'top tips' and 'runner assessments' today.

                                      ...... is pressure being brought to bear with the entry of 6%-Betfair?

The form-guide Racenet does provide may also be more useful if the previous SP's of runners were disclosed routinely.

....... early in the season perhaps but there do seem to be too-many starters for a fair race ... it does not make sense to bet 'exotics' bar quadrellas ............. rather just select likely winners and hope you get a result in a multi.

HK racing will not save Betfair  -- it is HK racing that needs saving

                                 ....reflecting on last night, HK racing is a mix of  'piked' in Perth and rough outcomes from 'inflated fields' in Melbourne.

Contrary to suggestions that HK racing rulers scathingly rebuked Betfair for offering HK markets  -- it is more likely that HK's racing rulers are looking to be a global player and Betfair will be an essential and welcome entrant.

..... alas it will not work out well for either unless and until HK racing stops putting land-mine runners in its races and ensures the quality of the product presented.

RVL is beyond redemption with 'Miles Going Nowhere'.

....... presently, the Texas Tavern is in Sydney ........ that's where the action is.

Pete - email Racenet with your suggestions as they are pretty receptive to comments.

The Betfair betting guide is instructive

......... looking at the betting sites, how is the 'track' disclosed as between 'turf', all-weather' and 'dirt etc -- please

I wish it was shown too as it's frustrating to do the form then realise it's on the all weather  :shy: The HKJC seems to be the only form guide that routinely shows it.

I always read Racenet -- Australia's best racinng site

............ any idea that Racenet would not monitor this 'forum' beyond belief.

EXCLUSIVE: David Hayes set to return to Hong Kong

............... this adds credibility to the idea that HK racing's rulers are looking to run the racing world!

Proper product quality control will see them succeed

HONG KONG & BETFAIR -- have the Australian-racing minders pulled the rug?

........... the new HK season may be open but it seems that Racenet and Punters.com have got a go-slow message.

Today the 'top 4 tips' and 'summary form comments' were missing from Racenet's contribution and the 'HK preview' assessment was apparently not published on PDC.

While my affection for HK racing is waning in the light of 'inflated fields' also corrupting their races ....... it is a real pity that Australian racing administrators cannot reach an accommodation with a business model that almost guarantees integrity by ensuring that a bet 'to win' is matched by a bet 'to lay' .

.... one likely reality is that the rort-funding of far-too-much Australian racing would not endure if punters were given a fair go................ and that would be best, overall, for the Australian communiry.

One converse , of course, is that Australian racing, offering a fair-go in association with a more aggressive Betfair,  would be well placed to take pole-position globally.

First-mover advantage is a wondrous thing.

Apologies  -- I looked but did not see

......................and the 'HK preview' assessment was [apparently not] published on PDC.
