Bart's back
By Winning Post, May 14, 2017 - 9:00 AM

A major prizemoney boost to $1 million has had the desired result for this Saturday's Group 1 Darley Goodwood, with a high-quality field set to line up at Morphettville led by reigning champion Black Heart Bart.

The grand Darren Weir-trained campaigner might be in line for Horse of the Year honours were it not for the presence of Winx, and he'll be suited down to the ground by the set weights and penalties of the Goodwood.

The Goodwood heads a strong black-type program at Morphettville, and there's a big card at Doomben too, with the Group 1 Doomben Cup leading the way.

There's black-type action at both ends of the distance spectrum at Flemington, with the Straight Six for the sprinters and the Andrew Ramsden over the Melbourne Cup course.

Our form coverage kicks off on Friday with full form guides for Geelong, Grafton's showcase meeting and the nighttime action at Cranbourne as well as fields, colours and selections for Wagga, Mudgee and Ipswich.

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 Wodonga (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 cup days at Casterton and Parkes 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.

Our readers have their say on page 6, while elsewhere in the paper Shane Templeton reminisces, Paul Richards presents his unique take on the sport, Tony Kneebone brings you his Snippets column and Number Cruncher delivers the stats that matter.

Winning Post costs $5 and is available Thursday afternoon in selected Melbourne newsagents, the crack of dawn Friday elsewhere.
