The Main event
By Winning Post, September 12, 2021 - 7:19 AM

This week's Winning Post is now available online here.

The markets expect champion mare Verry Elleegant will be there when the whips are cracking in this year's Cox Plate, and punters get a foretaste this Saturday when she steps up to 1600 metres in the George Main Stakes at Randwick.

The George Main heads a strong card at Randwick, where support races include the Tea Rose, the Bill Ritchie, the Kingston Town and The Shorts.

At Caulfield the handicap sprinters clash in the Sir Rupert Clarke while the classic three-year-olds line up in the Guineas preludes.

There's black type at Morphettville too as the SA sprinters trial for a trip east in the W.H. Wylie Handicap, and the Gold Coast is the venue for Queensland metro racing, with the fillies and mares duking it out in the Pink Ribbon Cup.

Our form coverage kicks off on Friday with a full form guide for Newcastle Cup day, with the Tibbie Stakes and Cameron Handicap making a triple Group 3 card, plus fields, colours and tips for the other Friday TAB meetings.

The metro racing this Saturday is at Caulfield in Melbourne, Randwick in NSW, Morphettville in SA, the Gold Coast in Queensland and Belmont in Perth.

Winning Post carries full-colour liftout guides for all those meetings plus Tatura (Vic/SA edition), Newcastle (NSW edition) and Dalby (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 (plus Devonport in the Tas edition) as well as 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 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 online ($5), the crack of dawn Friday in shops.
