The Championships Day 2 results will be updated throughout the afternoon at horseracing.com.au and we could not be more excited for what is set to be another outstanding day of racing.

The weather has eased somewhat in Sydney this weekend, but the Royal Randwick track will still be in the heavy race and it will be interesting to see if it favours horses on the rail like it did last weekend.

There are four Group 1 races on the Royal Randwick card this afternoon, but the obvious highlight is the presence of star mare Winx in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

Winx will start the Queen Elizabeth Stakes as a dominant favourite and it really is tough to see her having her incredible winning streak ended.

The Sydney Cup, Queen Of The Turf Stakes and the Australian Oaks are the other Group 1 events on this excellent card of racing and all three are very intriguing betting affairs.

There are plenty of other key races this weekend on the final day of The Championships and you can stay up to date with all of the action below.
