There is no doubt that Winx is the star attraction at Royal Randwick and she is $1.18 favourite with Ladbrokes.com.au to win the Group 1 event, but there are a host of other excellent betting races on the card.

Hiyaam and Silent Sedition have both been well-backed in the Australian Oaks and Coolmore Legacy Stakes respectively, while 2016 Melbourne Cup winner Almandin will start the Sydney Cup as a clear favourite.

We will keep you updated with all the results on The Championships Day 2, but for all the latest odds head to Ladbrokes.com.au and or check out the Ladbrokes App!

The Championships Day 2 Results

Race 1 (11:30am) Listed Fernhill Handicap Results

It wasn’t a great start to the day for punters at Royal Randwick as Futooh defied a drift to win the China Horse Club Mile.

It looked as though Futooh would be blocked for a run at the top of the straight, but jockey Jason Collett timed his run to perfection on the promising filly and she finished over the top of her stablemate Muswellbrook.

Futooh will likely back-up next weekend in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes.

  • 1st – Futooh
  • 2nd – Muswellbrook
  • 3rd – Aristocratic Miss

Race 2 (12:05pm) Listed South Pacific Classic Results

California Turbo stormed home late to record an impressive win in the South Pacific Classic at Royal Randwick this afternoon.

The two favourites Isaurian and Renewal took each other on early and that set things up for the swoopers.

It was California Turbo that stormed down the outside in the final 200 metres and he held-off a flying Dark Dream to record a smart win.

  • 1st – California Turbo
  • 2nd – Dark Dream
  • 3rd – Renewal

Race 3 (12:40pm) Group 2 Percy Sykes Stakes Results

Co-trainer Peter Snowden was brimming with praise for Pure Elation after she recorded a smart win in the Percy Sykes Stakes at Royal Randwick this afternoon.

Pure Elation was settled just behind the speed in the early stages of the Percy Sykes Stakes and she showed a nice turn-of-foot when she was asked for an extra effort from jockey Michael Walker to record a classy win.

Snowden said that he was unsure whether Pure Elation would bounce back after a couple of tough runs in Melbourne and he said she is the toughest two-year-old has has ever trained.

  • 1st – Pure Elation
  • 2nd – Fiesta
  • 3rd – Outback Barbie

Race 4 (1:15pm) Provincial Championships Final Results

Serene Miss showed an outstanding turn-of-foot to record an impressive win in the 2018 Provincial Championship Final at Royal Randwick this afternoon.

Jason Collett settled Serene Miss towards the tail of the field and she flew down the outside to score her sixth win from seven race starts.

Trainer Kris Lees confirmed that Serene Miss will head to Brisbane for the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival.

  • 1st – Serene Miss
  • 2nd – Newsfan
  • 3rd – Plaisir

Race 5 (1:50pm) Group 2 Arrowfield Sprint Results

Catchy returned to winning form for the first time since the Danehill Stakes in the Spring to claim an excellent win in the Arrowfield Sprint at Royal Randwick this afternoon.

Catchy was very plain behind Houtzen in the PJ Bell Stakes last weekend, but she showed a lovely turn-of-foot to finish over the top of her rivals.

Co-trainer David Hayes was delighted to see Catchy return to winning form and she will now head to Adelaide for the Robert Sangster Stakes.

  • 1st – Catchy
  • 2nd – Showtime
  • 3rd – I Am Excited

Race 6 (2:25pm) Group 1 Australian Oaks Results

Unforgotten outstayed her rivals to record an excellent win in the Australian Oaks at Royal Randwick this afternoon.

Hiyaam led from start to finish to win the Vinery Stud Stakes and Michael Dee elected to employ identical tactics in the Australian Oaks.

She was gallant in defeat and gave a good kick at the top of the straight, but Unforgotten was too strong late and she finished over the top of her rival.

  • 1st – Unforgotten
  • 2nd – Hiyaam
  • 3rd – Miss Admiration

Race 7 (3:05pm) Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes Results

Winx extended her winning streak to 25 with a typically outstanding performance in the 2018 Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Royal Randwick this afternoon.

Jockey Hugh Bowman elected to settle Winx at the tail of the field and it was Gailo Chop that got a very soft lead.

Gailo Chop kicked clear at the top of the straight and he was gallant in defeat, but Winx always looked likely to run him down and did just that!

  • 1st – Winx
  • 2nd – Gailo Chop
  • 3rd – Happy Clapper

Race 8 (3:45pm) Group 1 Sydney Cup Results

Who Shot Thebarman ran down a gallant Zacada to finally record a win in the 2018 Sydney Cup at Royal Randwick this afternoon.

Outsider Zacada fought-off Sir Charles Road and looked like he had the race won, but Who Shot Thebarman charged at the line in the shadows of the post.

It looked as though Zacada had held-on for a narrow victory, but Who Shot Thebarman got his nose in front at the right time to win the Sydney Cup at his fifth attempt!

  • 1st – Who Shot Thebarman
  • 2nd – Zacada
  • 3rd – Sir Charles Road

Race 9 (4:25pm) Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes Results

Alizee stormed down the outside to record a second Group 1 victory in the 2018 Queen Of The Turf Stakes at Royal Randwick this afternoon.

Glyn Schofield elected to settle Alizee at the tail-of-the-field, but that proved to be a winning play as she found the best part of the track and savaged the line in the concluding stages.

Trainer James Cummings was delighted to see Alizee return to winning form and pleased to finally have some luck after a tough day at the office for Godolphin.

  • 1st – Alizee
  • 2nd – Prompt Response
  • 3rd – Heavens Above
