A talented field of fifteen has been confirmed for Saturday’s featured 2016 Doncaster Mile on Day 1 of The Championships at Royal Randwick, highlighted by the inclusion of several previous winners at the highest level of racing.

Winx has returned to racing in typically scintillating form this time and has been confirmed in the 2016 Doncaster Mile field.

Breaking through for a maiden win at the highest level in the Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2200m) last winter, Winx returned in spring for consecutive wins in the Group 2 Theo Marks Stakes (1300m) and Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) before taking out the featured Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) in dominant fashion in late October.

Resuming this time for success in the Group 2 Apollo Stakes (1400m), the Street Cry mare will be seeking a sixth Group 1 win in the Doncaster Mile after comfortably taking out each of the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) and Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) most recently.

Turn Me Loose faded late for sixth in the George Ryder Stakes a fortnight ago but has reportedly pulled up well ahead of his inclusion in the Doncaster Mile field.

Resuming in spring for sixth in the Group 1 Makfi Challenge Stakes (1400m) in his native New Zealand, Turn Me Loose arrived in Australia for second in the Listed Paris Lane Stakes (1400m) before returning to winning form in the Listed Seymour Cup (1600m).

Continuing his positive run of form with success in the Group 2 Crystal Mile (1600m), the Iffraaj entire delivered a talented field defeat in the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m) on November 7th.

Resuming this time for fourth in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m), Turn Me Loose comfortably won the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) in his only other start prior to the George Ryder.

Turn Me Loose has been charged with carrying equal top-weight of 57kgs in the 2016 Doncaster Mile alongside reigning champion Kermadec.

Capping a strong autumn campaign with his maiden Group 1 win in the Doncaster Mile, Kermadec resumed in spring for a credible fifth in the talent-rich Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m).

Savaging the line for second in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) a fortnight later, the Teofilo entire returned to winning form in the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) before placing a credible fourth in the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes; his first attempt at 2000m.

Having run third in the Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) and second in the George Ryder Stakes this time, Kermadec will relish a return to a mile at Randwick on Saturday.

Azkadellia hit the line well for second in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) last time out and is sure to lay a great account for herself in the Doncaster Mile with only 50kgs in tow.

Ending a strong 2015 campaign third in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m), the Shinko King mare resumed this time for second in the Group 3 Bellmaine Stakes (1200m); progressing to success in the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes (1400m) in her only other start prior to the Coolmore Classic.
