Bart back where it began
By Winning Post, December 3, 2017 - 9:45 AM

It's been a while between drinks, but Black Heart Bart looks a huge chance of nabbing a long overdue sixth Group 1 win this Saturday.

Back where it all began in WA, Bart will tackle the Kingston Town Classic (1800m) at Ascot.

The way he finished off the recent Railway Stakes as topweight, it will take a big performance to deny him at weight-for-age.

Can Bart be beat? Joel Marshall's Kingston Town preview will lead this week's Winning Post.

Meanwhile the eyes of the racing world will be on Sha Tin for Sunday's International day, and Joel will provide his usual comprehensive preview of the big four races in this week's edition.

Our form coverage kicks off on Friday with full form guides for the Moonee Valley night meeting plus Muswellbrook and Mornington, as well as fields, colours and selections for Murwillumbah and the twilight cards at Doomben, Devonport, Queanbeyan and Port Lincoln.

The metro racing this Saturday is at Park in Victoria (Pakenham Cup day), 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 Stawell (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 Werribee Cup day and Italian Plate day at Tatura 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 4, while further back in the book 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.
