The Gr2 Apollo Stakes has been a good guide to this race in recent years with Winx (2016), Contributer (2015), Grand Armee (2005) and Tuesday Joy (2009) all taking out the Apollo Stakes & Chipping Norton Stakes double, while multiple gallopers have won or placed in both races.

Talented John O'Shea trained import Hartnell took out the Gr3 Sky High Stakes after finishing runner-up in the Chipping Norton Stakes beforehand.
