Godolphin import Hartnell hasn't taken long to make an impact on Australian racing and he can take the next step this Saturday when he tackles The BMW (2400m), highlight of the final day of Rosehill's autumn carnival, which also features the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes for the Oaks-bound fillies.
Can Hartnell be stopped? Richard Callander doesn't think so, and he's tipping a huge day for James McDonald (pictured), who'll ride both Hartnell and Vinery favourite First Seal. Richie's preview will lead this week's Winning Post and our 12-page liftout colour form guide is the one you need to find all the winners.
In Victoria, meanwhile, there's an exciting new addition to the calendar: the metro Saturday action is at Mornington, where the action is headed by the $350,000 Mornington Cup, the listed Hareeba Stakes, the Mornington Guineas and the Mornington Sires' Produce. Joel Marshall is back to preview the action and we've got a comprehensive 12-page liftout guide.
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 Moonee Valley plus fields, colours and tips for the Port Macquarie and Kilcoy meetings.
The metro racing this Saturday is at Mornington in Victoria, 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 Werribee (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 Wellington Boot day 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 6, our readers are fired up across all the big issues and on page 7 Richard Callander has the inside mail on NSW racing while Shane Templeton reminisces. Further back in the book Paul Richards presents his unique take on the sport and Tony Kneebone presents his lively Snippets column.
