There's no doubt spring is just around the corner when horses of the calibre of Hey Doc reappear.
The Group 1-winning miler will have the first start of his four-year-old season in Saturday's Aurie's Star Handicap at Flemington, while at Rosehill the new-season three-year-olds take their first steps towards the Golden Rose in the listed Rosebud.
Will the Doc be sharp enough for 1200 metres in August? Tony Kneebone's Flemington preview will lead this week's Winning Post.
Our form coverage kicks off on Friday with full form guides for bet365 Geelong and Tamworth as well as fields, colours and selections for Canberra and Ipswich.
The metro racing this Saturday is at Flemington in Melbourne, Rosehill in Sydney, Morphettville in Adelaide, Doomben in Brisbane and Belmont in Perth.
Winning Post carries full-colour liftout guides for all those meetings plus Colearine (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 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.
