Flying finish
By Winning Post, April 16, 2018 - 9:25 AM

The Championships are over but the Sydney carnival kicks on this Saturday, Randwick playing host to the harbour city's final two Group 1s of the season.

The two-year-olds stretch to 1600 metres in the Champagne Stakes while the weight-for-age sprinters led by Trapeze Artist battle it out in the All Aged Stakes.

Trapeze Artist, who upstaged Redzel in winning the T.J. Smith Stakes on day one of The Championships, could stake his claim to be named Australia's champion sprinter wit hvictory on Saturday.

Elsewhere there's plenty of cash up for grabs at Caulfield on VOBIS Owners and Breeders day while Adealde's autumn warms up, there's black type in Brisbane and it's WA Derby day in the west.

Our form coverage kicks off on Friday with full form guides for the Cranbourne night meeting, plus the daytime action at Hamilton and Canberra as well as fields, colours and selections for Muswellbrook and Gatton.

The metro racing this Saturday is at Caulfield 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 Bairnsdale (Vic/SA/Tas edition), Kembla Grange (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.
