The first Saturday of autumn looms as a classic in more ways than one, with Group 1 Guineas races in both Melbourne and Sydney.
At Randwick, last-start Apollo Stakes winner Hallowed Crown takes on a crack field in the Randwick Guineas.
At Flemington, the VRC's autumn carnival kicks off with an intriguing version of the Australian Guineas, with a strong interstate presence headed by Kermadec (pictured) and Wandjina from NSW, Rommel from WA, Alpine Eagle from SA and Admiral from Tasmania.
On what is a long weekend for much of the country, the high-class action flows through Sunday (cups at Canberra, Echuca, Stony Creek and Corowa) and Monday, Adelaide Cup day. And Winning Post has it all covered in our bumper 112-pager.
Before the weekend there's plenty of Friday action as always and Winning Post has full form guides for three TAB meetings including the nighttime action at Cranbourne plus fields for the Sapphire Coast, Beaudesert, Toowoomba and Port Lincoln meetings.
The metro racing this Saturday is at Flemington in Melbourne, Randwick in Sydney, Morphettville in Adelaide, Sunshine Coast in Queensland and Ascot in Perth.
Winning Post carries full-colour liftout guides for all those meetings plus Echuca (Vic/SA/Tas edition), Newcastle (NSW edition) and Gold Coast (Queensland edition), as well as fields, tips, ratings and/or colours for other TAB Saturday cards.
On Sunday we've got liftout formguides for four more TAB meetings including the cup cards at Canberra, Echuca and Stony Creek plus fields, ratings, tips and colours for a stack more Sunday and Monday programs.
Don't forget Winning Post now carries trackwork reports for all four Melbourne training tracks, all three in Sydney, Morphettville in Adelaide and a general Brisbane report.
Away from the form, we've got news columns from Queensland, NSW, six Victorian districts, SA and Tasmania.
On page 4, our readers are fired up across all the big issues and on page 5 Richard Callander has the inside mail on NSW racing while Adrian Dunn covers Victoria. Further back in the book Brent Zerafa reports from Sydney and Shane Templeton reminisces while Paul Richards presents his unique take on the sport and Tony Kneebone presents his lively Snippets column.
