The Race: held two weeks before the Caulfield Cup, from 1948 to 1970 this race was 12 furlongs (2400m) and up to 1963 was run under handicap conditions, then became a Group 2 WFA. After Makybe Diva won this race in 2005 and followed with wins in the Cox Plate and the Melbourne Cup the race was lifted to Group 1 status with Set Weight conditions. In 2017 Winx won her 21st consecutive race in the Turnbull ahead of her 3rd Cox Plate and scored her 28th straight win again in 2018.
Time: Track record at the Flemington 2000m is 1:58.73, Makybe Diva (Australian Cup 2005).
Lead Up Form: Runners generally come through the George Main, Underwood, P B Lawrence, Naturalism Stakes & the Chelmsford.
The Track: Flemington is a spacious track with sweeping turns & long home straight. Most runners have their chance, even when the rail is out which it usually is for this meeting.
Track Bias, Barriers: The 2000m start is situated on the right hand side of the course, past the turn after the winning post. Long straight run until the first corner, however an inside draw is an advantage with the rail out. Difficult to lead all the way given the Set Weight conditions in this race and the long home straight.
