Redz ready
By Winning Post, February 11, 2018 - 10:31 AM

A sizzling trial has Everest winner Redzel ready to take on Australia's best speedsters again when he tackles the Black Caviar Lightning (1000m) first up at Flemington this Saturday.

The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained sprinter, who went on to claim the Group 1 Darley Classic after his Everest triumph last spring, hasn't been beaten since running second on a heavy track in The Galaxy last March.

Can anyone stop him this Saturday? Paul Richards's Lightning preview will lead this week's Winning Post.

Elsewhere, the Apollo Stakes at Randwick becomes a super-competitive affair all of a sudden in the absence of Winx.

It's Birthday Cup day at Morphettville and Marong Cup day at Bendigo.

Our form coverage kicks off on Friday with full form guides for the Moonee Valley and Canterbury night meetings plus Moe during the day, as well as fields, colours and selections for Friday's five other TAB meetings.

The metro racing this Saturday is at Flemington in Melbourne, Randwick in Sydney, Morphettville in Adelaide, Doomben in Brisbane and Ascot in Perth.

Winning Post carries full-colour liftout guides for all those meetings plus Bendigo (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 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 Ballarat newsagents, the crack of dawn Friday elsewhere.
