Sydney's spring reaches its climax this Saturday with the running of three Group 1 races at Royal Randwick, and it's no surprise that Chris Waller is expected to dominate.
The top of the market for The Star Epsom is heavily populated by Waller runners including defending champ Boban (pictured), who'll be looking to reignite his spring after a lacklustre Melbourne campaign.
Waller also has several live chances in the Metrop for the stayers.
Elsewhere on the Randwick card, the miler fillies battle it out in the Flight Stakes, and the first of the babies step out in the Breeders and the Gimcrack.
This week's Winning Post leads with a four-page wraparound on the Group 1 action.
Meanwhile in Melbourne, Flemington hosts what Lee Freedman calls the key day of the spring carnival.
Highlight is the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes. Last year's Turnbull first four included the Melbourne Cup winner (Fiorente), the Caulfield Cup winner (Fawkner) and very nearly the Cox Plate winner (Happy Trails).
Helping Winning Post readers sort out the chances will be leading Melbourne trainer Peter Moody, who joins us for another spring with his forthright and candid column.
Before Saturday, 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 panel for Rockhampton.
The metro racing this Saturday is at Flemington in Melbourne, Randwick in Sydney, Morphettville in Adelaide, Gold Coast in Queensland and Belmont in Perth.
Winning Post carries full-colour liftout guides for all those meetings plus Murtoa (Vic/SA/Tas edition), Kembla Grange (NSW edition) and Sunshine 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 Bairnsdale, Benalla and Cootamundra cup days 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 there's the Snippets column, Richo adds his unique take on the sport, Brent Zerafa reports from Sydney, Shane Templeton reminisces and Peter Lucas and John Barker go head to head on the burning issues in sport.
