Good optics
By Winning Post, September 9, 2018 - 10:22 AM

There were no heart flutters when Winx resumed in last month's Winx Stakes, and the mighty mare is poised to extend her record winning streak to 27 when she tackles this Saturday's Group 1 Colgate Optic White Stakes (1600m) at Randwick.

The Optic White heads a strong program at NSW racing HQ, also featuring the Tea Rose, the Bill Ritchie, The Shorts and the Heritage Stakes.

Meanwhile at Flemington the big guns will be out for the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes, supported by the Let's Elope, the Danehill, the Bobbie Lewis and more.

Our form coverage kicks off on Friday with full form guides for the massive meeting at Newcastle, featuring the Newcastle Cup, Tibbie Stakes, Cameron Handicap and Spring Stakes, as well as the Swan Hill meeting, with fields, colours and tips for Goulburn and Ipswich.

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

Winning Post carries full-colour liftout guides for all those meetings plus Echuca (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 Dubbo 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 $5.50 and is available Thursday afternoon in selected Melbourne newsagents, the crack of dawn Friday elsewhere.
