The Alexandra Stakes typically attracts above average fillies who are suited by the set weight plus penalty conditions of the race and generally speaking the better quality females have a decided advantage over their rivals.

Fillies who previously contested races like the Gr3 The Vanity Stakes over 1400m on Lighning Stakes day or the Gr2 Kewney Stakes over 1600m on Australian Cup day might consider tacking this event.

Think Bleue (2018) ran second in a 3YO BM70 race over 1600m at Sandown before taking out this event and recent Alexandra Stakes winners include Oregon's Day (2017 and Thames Court (2016).
