Race 1 – Kings Of Sydney Sport Mile (1600m)
Tony McEvoy-trained colt Vinco has been consistently good over his last four runs, winning twice and placing second a further two times.
While the last start win was encouraging this is a step-up in class on Championships day, the horse is drawn well and should be right in the running here.
Amercement the obvious danger but we believe Vinco is a star of the future and we’re backing him in to deliver in the opener.

Race 2 – Agency South Pacific Classic (1400m)
The undefeated Green Aeon steps up significantly in grade here but there’s no reason to jump off this runaway train.
In the horse’s last start at Warwick Farm was brilliant, with the gelding winning by three lengths carrying 58.5kg. On Saturday the horse carries just 53kg and jumps from barrier 4, which will be ideal for the Bjorn Baker runner.
Green Aeon looks hardest to beat in a difficult race.

Race 3 – Polytrack Prov. Championships Final (1400m)
This is without question the hardest race of the day to pick.
After winning by a length and a half at Newcastle, Golden Tycoon looks a good bet. We’re expecting the speedy beginner to spear out and lead from barrier one and attempt to run them into the ground.
This will also be the first time the colt has run third-up, but with the benefit of fitness on his side Golden Tycoon should be right in the mix.

Race 4 – Percy Sykes Stakes (1200m)
Golden Slipper winner Kiamichi drops back in grade after finishing third in the Inglis’ Sires on day one of the champs.
After taking out the Slipper from the front the Godolphin runner attempted to do the same again last week was overrun late by stablemate Microphone and race favourite Loving Gaby.
Kiamichi is the class in the field and we’re sure she’ll deliver another strong run from the front.
