Will I always win?

No, not always. The nature of horse racing means there is an element of risk involved and luck can also be a factor. However, Lucky 8 Racing endeavours to assess as many of the risks as possible. It is in our best interest and yours that we provide you with the best quality Hong Kong racing information possible. We strive to win not to lose.

Do you advise how much I should outlay?

No. However we do provide a recommended staking plan with all your selections. The staking plan is expressed in units so that you can apply it to your local currency. The staking plan will ensure that you are betting proportionately and systematically.

Do you offer a betting strategy with your selections?

Yes. When you become a member you will receive our unique betting strategy to use with our selections. The betting strategy can be just as important as the selections themselves. You will find it very valuable to your overall chances of success.

How many race selections do I receive?

Generally half the races on the average Hong Kong race program are viable betting propositions, sometimes more. Lucky 8 Racing will avoid the wrong races and provide you with selections for all the right races to increase your winning potential.

Where do the tips come from?

Greg Maher is the principal analyst for Lucky 8 Racing. He has a wealth of racing industry experience, especially in Hong Kong form assessment. You can read Greg’s profile at this link: http://www.lucky8racing.com/director/. Greg produced outstanding results in the 2013/14 racing season and is continuing to grow and progress.

When is the race information available?

Race information will be available two (2) hours prior to the first race on the program for all meetings at Sha Tin and Happy Valley. Please check your local guides for Hong Kong race starting times.

How do I access the racing information?

Simply use your Login details to access the meeting you are interested in. Your Lucky 8 Racing membership is accessible for any Hong Kong race meeting. However, consult your local racing guide first. If you do not want to bet on a particular meeting or are unable to, then your meeting credits will remain intact until the next time you access your account. 

Who should I bet with

It is our recommendation that you have at least one (1) online betting account. However, for value prices, it is far better if you can access two (2) services or more in order to compare prices and give yourself the best chance to secure the value you want. For your win bets we strongly suggest fixed odds services. Links to some of the best online betting sites are provided for you in the member’s area of the website so that you can access their services in conjunction with viewing Lucky 8 race day selections. Please be aware that online betting is illegal in some jurisdictions, always ensure that you comply with laws that may affect you.
