This week in Winning Post

The stable of David Hayes and Tom Dabernig is in irresistible form at present and the next feature they'll be turning their attention to is Friday's Wodonga Cup.

Coming off a third to boom import Pornichet in the Group 3 Sandown Stakes, Spacecraft looms as hard to stop in the feature on the Murray.

The Wodonga Cup card is one of 10 TAB programs around Australia on a huge Friday of racing, and as usual Winning Post is your one-stop shop for Friday form and information.

We'll have five full-colour liftout form guides (including for the nighttime action at Cranbourne and the Warwick Farm twilight) with fields, colours, tips and analysis for the other meetings.

On Saturday there's black-type action at Rosehill, where Midsummer Sun (pictured) is Richie's best, and Doomben.

The metro racing this Saturday is at Moonee Valley 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 Yarra Valley (Vic/SA/Tas edition), Hawkesbury (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 meetings.

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 Richo adds his unique take on the sport, Brent Zerafa reports from Sydney, Shane Templeton reminisces, Tony Kneebone presents his popular Snippets column and Peter Lucas goes head to head with John Barker 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.

Letter of the Week

Out of line

After attending a great Emirates Stakes day with friends, it was time to head home — that’s when the fun came to a screeching halt.
My friends and I waited in line for a cab at the cab rank that is within the confines of Flemington racecourse. As we waited patiently like hundreds of others, it was more than a little annoying to see both men and women jump the queue or hail cabs as they drove past them, irrespective of their place in the queue.
After witnessing several racegoers flouting the laws of common courtesy, a few in the queue told the security officers that they were there to ensure that this type of queue-jumping did not take place.
Unfortunately the security personnel I witnessed preferred to turn a blind eye to this blatant disregard for the rules and actually seemed intimidated by those wanting to jump into a cab without lining up.
The VRC needs to address this. I witnessed several heated exchanges between racegoers fall just short of physical violence. I’m sure that the VRC understands that after a long, hot day in which copious amounts of alcohol had been consumed some are more than a little impatient and want to get home ASAP.
Maybe the VRC could erect temporary cyclone fencing along the outside of the roses that line the boulevard of Melbourne Cup winners. This would stop those with inflated opinions of themselves from wandering out on to the road and jumping the queue.
Also, a number of young patrons I spoke to wanted to head off to the casino. Surely it would be in Crown’s interests to supply a couple of courtesy buses.
As I stated, it was a great Emirates Stakes day. Unfortunately it was spoiled by several people who wanted to flout the rules.
Thankfully this time nobody decided to take their frustration and angst to another level, but should the VRC choose to ignore the issue I can see it turning very, very ugly.
We did finally get a cab — waiting time 55 minutes, thanks to the queue jumpers.
