The world's richest mile race takes centre stage at Flemington this Saturday as the people's choices battle it out with the judges' picks in the inaugural $5 million All-Star Mile.

Alizee, who earned her place in the public vote but undoubtedly would have picked up a wildcard anyway, heads into the race on the back of a dominant win in the C.F. Orr Stakes.

A dual Group 1 winner at 1600m, she looks mighty hard to beat, but she'll have strong opposition from stablemate Hartnell, the super-honest Happy Clapper, boom Tasmanian filly Mystic Journey and more.

Meanwhile at Rosehill, the Group 1 Coolmore Classic for the mares takes centre stage.

Our form coverage kicks off on Friday with full form guides for The Valley night meeting, featuring the Alister Clark Stakes, plus Keith Nolan Quality day at Kembla and Sale during the day, as well as fields, colours and selections for Friday's other TAB meetings.

The metro racing this Saturday is at Flemington in Melbourne, Rosehill in Sydney, Morphettville in Adelaide, the Gold Coast in Queensland and Ascot in Perth.

Winning Post carries full-colour liftout guides for all those meetings plus bet365 Geelong (Vic/SA/Tas edition), Gosford (NSW edition) and Rockhampton (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 TAB meetings including bet365 Yarra Valley Cup day and Country Championship Qualifier day at Grafton. Plus we've got 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.
