The Race: First run in 1881, this is an important race in the Spring Carnival calendar with many runners being focused towards the Caulfield Cup, although the last winner to achieve the Toorak-Caulfield Cup double was Leilani in 1974. Can also be a good guide to the Cantala Stakes on the first Saturday of racing at Flemington during Melbourne Cup Week.
Lead Up Form: The Rupert Clarke & Memsie Stakes are historically the best lead-up races for the Toorak Handicap, other significant races can be the George Main & Epsom Hcp.
Track Bias, Barriers: The 1600m start is at the top of the back straight giving all horses a chance to prepare for the first turn and another long straight brings the field to the final turn into the straight. The rail is normally in the true position and Caulfield races fairly under these conditions, however statistics show that horses drawn inside barrier 8 have more wins than those drawn wide.
Weight & Statistics: winners can be found at the top and bottom of the scale, fitness is the most important factor and look for runners capable of running a strong mile and beyond.
