Race will give spring car­ni­val con­tenders a chance to shine

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - SPORT - Ray Thomas

NICHET, Ker­madec, Royal De­scent, First Seal, Foreteller, Hawk­spur, Mo­ri­arty, Swey­nesse, Messene, Grand Mar­shal, Who Shot Thebarman - these are just some of the stars ex­pected for the Group 2 $250,000 War­wick Stakes (1400m) at Royal Rand­wick on Satur­day.

The weight-for-age race is the start­ing point for many spring car­ni­val con­tenders.

It will also fea­ture Bur- bero and Weary, who ran the quinella in the Ex­press­way Stakes this month.

The Royal Rand­wick meet­ing is the unof­fi­cial start of the Syd­ney spring car­ni­val with five stakes races on the pro­gram. TEST FOR SE­BRING SUN

SE­BRING Sun gets another thor­ough test in the Group 3 $125,000 Up And Com­ing Stakes (1300m) at Rand­wick’s fea­ture meet­ing.

The Gary Portelli-trained colt has won both starts this cam­paign but will face tough op­po­si­tion. SHINN TO SHINE

MY TIP for this week­end is to fol­low form jockey Blake Shinn at Royal Rand­wick.
