Here is the code i have for the other site.

Private Function HttpGetRequest(Url As String) As String
'Function submits a GET request, returns a server response
Dim xmlReq As ServerXMLHTTP60

Set xmlReq = New ServerXMLHTTP60
xmlReq.Open "GET", Url
xmlReq.setRequestHeader "User-Agent", "Excel 2002 :)"

If xmlReq.Status <> 200 Then MsgBox "Error occured: " & xmlReq.statusText: Exit Function

HttpGetRequest = xmlReq.responseText
End Function

Sub Test()
Dim servResp As String
Dim htmlDoc As HTMLDocument, myTable As IHTMLTable, myTableRow As IHTMLTableRow, myCell As IHTMLTableCell
Dim i As Long, r As Long, c As Long, colSpan As Long

'Record server response into a string variable
servResp = HttpGetRequest("http://www.puntingform.com.au/form-guide/race/bathurst-26-06-2012-1-form/")

'Creats a new object, assigns its .body.innerHTML property from server response
Set htmlDoc = New HTMLDocument
htmlDoc.body.innerHTML = servResp

'If you check your webpage source code _
you'll see that the table you need has a class name 'Table7' _
(table class="Table7"). _
This allows us to use .getElementsByClassName method to _
put this table into a new object of IHTMLTable type. _
There 's only one table on the page page, that's why it's .Item(0)
Set myTable = htmlDoc.getElementsByClassName("Table7").Item(0)
'Iterate through each table row in our table rows collection
For Each myTableRow In myTable.Rows
c = 0
colSpan = 0
'Iterate through each table cell in our table rows collection
For Each myCell In myTableRow.Cells
'Table header captions span over several cells: th colspan="7" _
so for 1st row only we need colspan values to later record these cells text _
into appropriate columns in Excel
If r = 0 Then
colSpan = myCell.getAttribute("colspan") - 1
End If
'Some cells in 2nd row don't have any text. _
But they have IMG tags which have despriptive TITLE attribute we can use
If r = 1 Then
If Len(myCell.innerText) > 0 Then
Sheet1.Range("A1").Offset(r, c) = myCell.innerText
Sheet1.Range("A1").Offset(r, c) = myCell.getElementsByTagName("IMG").Item(0).getAttribute("TITLE")
End If
Sheet1.Range("A1").Offset(r, c) = myCell.innerText
End If
c = c + 1 + colSpan
Next myCell
r = r + 1
Next myTableRow

End Sub
