Sydney racing for Doncaster Mile Day is set to kick off at 12:10pm (AEDT) and the ten-race program continues through until 5:50pm (AEDT).

It is a huge meeting featuring four Group 1 races starting with the 2017 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (Race 6) where Gunnison comes out paving the way for the Lindsay Park-trained Feng Chu to score a start.

The original thirteen final acceptors for the 2017 Australian Derby field (Race 7) remain in play and betting at Ladbrokes.com.au on the mile and a half feature is firmly led by the Kiwi-trained Rosehill Guineas winner Gingernuts ($3.10).

There are no scratchings from the 2017 TJ Smith Stakes field (Race 8) with fifteen sprinters facing off including the dual defending champion Chautauqua ($5.50) and the now $4.20 favourite Russian Revolution.

The elite level Sydney racing action comes to a peak in Race 9 with the 2017 Doncaster Mile field to run at a capacity 20 starters including the first emergency New Tipperary in for the withdrawn Tosen Stardom.
