This week in Winning Post

The Group 2 Expressway Stakes is the highlight of this Saturday's racing around Australia, with several high-class gallopers among seven first-uppers contesting the 1200m event.

Chris Waller has five acceptors in the Expressway (though Boban will only run if the track firms up), and Richard Callander expects Weary to be perfectly suited on the back of the heavy rain Sydney has copped this week.

Other highlights of the Rosehill program are the Widden and Canonbury Stakes for the Golden Slipper hopefuls. The Widden Stakes winner has gone on to win the Slipper in each of the past two years.

Callander's Expressway preview will lead this week's Winning Post, and our panel of experts will have specials around the country from Friday to Sunday on pages 2 and 3.

There's plenty of Friday action as always and Winning Post has full form guides for four TAB meetings including the nighttime action at Moonee Valley plus fields, overviews and tips panels for the Sunshine Coast and Rockhampton meetings.

The metro racing this Saturday is at Flemington in Melbourne, Rosehill in Sydney, Morphettville in Adelaide, Doomben in Brisbane and Ascot in Perth.

Winning Post carries full-colour liftout guides for all those meetings plus Kyneton (Vic/SA/Tas edition), Kembla Grange 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 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, Shane Templeton reminisces and Tony Kneebone presents his Snippets column while Peter Lucas and John Barker go head to head on the burning issues in sport.

If you're a breeding enthusiast you won't want to miss our WP Thoroughbreds liftout.

Don't miss this week's Winning Post ($5), available from Thursday afternoon in selected Melbourne CBD and Flemington newsagencies, the crack of dawn Friday elsewhere around Australia.
