A big Saturday of mile racing around the land

There are huge feature miles across Australia on Saturday. The biggest is the G1 Railway Stakes in Perth where some Eastern staters currently lead the betting. Roots ($3.50) was impressive last time in the Hot Danish. She could face Tuvalu ($4.50) off a series of strong WFA credentials in Melbourne.

Forgot You ($8) heads across after a win on Cup Day, while Alsephina ($6) might be best of the locals.

There is also the G2 WA Guineas (1600m) for the 3yos at Ascot and if Keshi Boom ($3) backs up, she will be hard to beat. The Karrakatta winner Super Smink ($3) is also right in the betting.

It is provincial racing hitting the city lights back East this weekend with rich races at both Kembla and Cranbourne. The second of the provincial million dollar races sees The Gong over 1600m at Kembla, and it is Cup Day at Cranbourne where the signature event is worth $500,000.

Some horses coming off 2000m form will have a big say at Kembla, most notably Osipenko ($3.50) and Wild Planet ($26). There are also those off winning performamnces like New Mandate ($15), Spangler ($11) and Loch Eagle ($101).

The Warra, over the short course 1000m, will see pace to burn with fast horses like Insurrection ($8), Hard To Say ($8), Dragonstone ($6) and Brudenell ($8) potentially in the field.

Plenty of inform horses from the carnival are entered for the Listed Cranbourne Cup (1600m) on the club's big day. Ain'Tnodeeldun ($5) chases four on the bounce, but others with top Sydney form are also in the nominations, such as Detonator Jack ($15), Skyman ($26) and Wicklow ($26).

Speedsters entered for the Apache Cat Classic (1000m) include Recommendation and Jigsaw.
