Hot Stone
By Winning Post, August 5, 2018 - 8:06 AM

One of Australia's better qualified maidens, speedy Godolphin youngster Plague Stone, got the monkey off his back in last month's Rosebud Prelude at his final two-year-old start.

Now, at three, he's ready to go on with the job in Saturday's Rosebud at Rosehill.

Meanwhile in Melbourne, the older speedsters (and a few first-uppers) match motors in the Aurie's Star at Flemington, where our front-page tip is Voodoo Lad.

This week's Winning Post includes comprehensive coverage of both meetings, among 12 full form guides.

Our form coverage kicks off on Friday with full form guides for the meetings at bet365 Geelong and Tamworth, with fields, colours and tips for Ipswich and Canberra.

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 Moe (Vic/SA/Tas edition), Newcastle (NSW edition) and Gold Coast (Qld 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 Narromine Cup day 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.
