2016 Australian Guineas Day Scratchings & Track Report

There is one Group 1 highlight on Australian Guineas Day 2016 at Flemington Racecourse today, Saturday March 5, as the action of the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival continues.

Melbourne has a partly cloudy day ahead with a top of 27 degrees and no chance of rain so the Flemington Good (4) track rating will remain steady across the Australian Guineas Day card.
