This race used to be one of the major features of Brisbane’s summer carnival, as prior to 2020 it was normally held in December. In the past it had the reputation as the best 1600m race in Queensland but since it was switched from Eagle Farm to Doomben in 2013 some feel it is now overshadowed by the Bernborough Handicap.
Because it has moved position in the racing calendar in 2020, the lead-up races will be different to the past.
