The Carlyon Cup is a Group 3 set weight & penalties race for open horses that takes place each February at Caulfield racecourse in Melbourne, Victoria. This race is run over a distance of 1600 metres and worth $150,000 in prize money. The 2020 Carlyon Cup was taken out by Miss Siska from Odeon with Guizot third.
One of the time-honured races of the Melbourne Racing Club, the Carlyon Cup is held on the club's second biggest race day of the autumn, Group 1 CF Orr Stakes day at Caulfield.

|2020 Winner:||Miss Siska|
The Carlyon Cup is a more than handy race held during the Melbourne autumn racing carnival that attracts above average horses. Some quality types have saluted in this event over the years including Apache Cat (2007), Northerly (2001), Veeandercross (1993), and the great miler Super Impose (1989).
Run under set weight plus penalties conditions, the Carlyon Cup tends to favour the better performed gallopers going around. Horses tackling this race may continue on to better races ahead like the Group 2 Blamey Stakes at Flemington, which is run under similar conditions on Group 1 Australian Cup day in March
The upcoming Group 2 St George Stakes at the same track on Blue Diamond Day may be on the agenda for horses contesting this race. Avilius (2019) and Gailo Chop (2018) have both captured the Carlyon Cup and St George Stakes double in recent years, while Chris Waller's Foreteller (5th in 2013) managed to win the St George Stakes after finishing fifth in the Carlyon Cup.
Miss Siska (2020) resumed from a spring spell to score a first-class victory in this event for the Grahame Begg stable.
Recent Carlyon Cup winners include Avilius (2019) and Gailo Chop (2018).
