Sports and racing fans love Boxing Day - there's the start of another test, the Big Bash continues, the fleet in the Sydney to Hobart sets sail and there's a double-header in the A-League just to name a few events.

The racing treat on Boxing Day is the Group 3 Summer Cup (2000m) at Royal Randwick. It boasts prize money of $125,000. Following a gallant second to Queenslander Rudy in the Group 2 Villiers (1600m), I’m Imposing has to lump 59kg over a distance which has netted him two wins and two seconds from eight attempts. The weight is a big question mark, but Chris Waller's veteran galloper is in fine form, with a win and two seconds from his past four starts.

His main danger looks to be Scream Machine. He also put in a huge Villiers run, coming from last to finish fifth, 2.4 lengths off the winner. Jason Coyle's six-year-old meets I’m Imposing 1kg better at the weights. While he's won three of seven at the 2000m, Scream Machine hasn't run a place in six goes at Randwick and is 0/2 at the track and distance.
