History: From the early days has attracted the best of the middle to staying distance horses with Windbag, winner of the 1925 Melbourne Cup, winning the 1926 race and Phar Lap winning the double in 1930. There have also been many winners who have achieved the Chipping Norton / Queen Elizabeth Stakes double, and the winner of the Chipping Norton gains an automatic entry to the Doncaster and Sydney Cup.
Champion winners: Winx 2016/17 (15th consecutive win), Octagonal 1997 (also Australian Cup and Mercedes Classic), Super Impose 1991/92 (Doncaster, Epsom, Warwick Stakes 91/92 & Canberra Cup, Cox Plate ’92).
Best lead-up form: Apollo Stakes & The Expressway.
Track Bias: The 1600m start is located in a short chute off the back of the course. Straight run of 650m until the first turn, inside barriers are a slight advantage.
