Let me create this post to keep track the races for this season in Melbourne.
It has been hectic week for me to work on handicap on Wednesday night – Hong Kong races, then Friday Singapore races and Sunday for both Hong Kong and Singapore again.
I would like to cover more races in Australia but the racing form with so little information really pissed me off. Unlike website like HKJC or STC where they provide tonnes of free information that assist you in betting.
