Quality runners may fancy their chances after a run in the Group 2 Gloaming Stakes at Rosehill Racecourse, an event which has proved a steady form guide over the years.

The Spring Champion Stakes has been hosted by the ATC since 1971 with a promotion from a principal race to Group 1 coming in 1979. Prior to 1978, it was held during the autumn racing carnival as the Australasian Champion Stakes.

Jockey R. Quinton made winning a habit and steered 4 horses to victory in the Spring Champion Stakes between 1973 and 1985. While Sir Dapper, Stylish Century, Danewin, Tie The Knot and Dignity Dancer were some of the notable stayers to win in the 1990s, Savabeel in 2004 is among the outstanding gallopers to do so in recent times.

The time of 2 minutes and 0.4 seconds set by Dignity Dancer remains unbroken.
