Sydney racing for Expressway Stakes Day kicks off at 12:55pm (AEDT) and the nine-race card continues through until 5:50pm (AEDT).

Black-Type racing is first up with the opening two races serving as early Golden Slipper lead-ups for the juveniles.

The fillies are on show in the first with just five in the Group 3 $160,000 Widden Stakes (1100m) led in betting by the Ciaron Maher & David Eustace-trained Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Away Game ($2.15 @ Ladbrokes.com.au).

The second has the colts and geldings doing battle in the Group 3 $160,000 Canonbury Stakes (1100m) where the Chris Waller-trained Group 3 winner Global Quest ($2.40 @ Ladbrokes.com.au) is the favourite to defeat his five rivals.

The meeting’s headline event runs as Race 7 at 4:30pm (AEDT) with three scratchings from the Group 2 $200,000 Expressway Stakes (1200m) field.

After 10 original final acceptors there are just seven left in the mix after the withdrawal of: #3 Special Reward (2), #8 Kubrick (4) and the Godolphin-raced Golden Slipper winning filly #10 Kiamichi (10).

The Expressway Stakes scratchings have seen the price on the defending champion Alizee firm into $2.25 through Ladbrokes.com.au as the three-time Group 1 winning mare chases successive victories in the weight-for-age feature for the first time since Court’s In Session (2005-06).
