Weekend Black Type Feature Schedule

Friday, 3rd August 2018

As we usher in the 2018/19 racing season, there are just two stakes races scheduled across Australia and New Zealand this weekend, headlined by the Group 2 Missile Stakes in Sydney. And what a top quality renewal it promises to be, with the likes of Randwick Guineas winner Kementari, Golden Slipper winner She Will Reign, Gr1 winners Music Magnate and Takedown, emerging star Pierata, and the Gr1 placed Showtime lining up in the $200,000 sprint feature. The race is also likely to provide some answers to The Everest puzzle, with Kementari and Pierata, in particular, angling for a slot in the world's richest turf race. Kementari is currently favourite with TAB at $1.95, ahead of Pierata at $4.20, Music Magnate at $8.50 and She Will reign at $9. Below in AEST order are Saturday's scheduled stakes races incorporating integrated fields, form, indicative odds and runner news:

  • 1:30pm: Gr3 Winter Cup (1600m) Riccarton
  • 3:30pm: Gr2 Missile Stakes (1200m) Randwick
