|Track:||Caulfield racecourse, Melbourne|
|Race Type:||Open - Set Weights + Penalty|
|2018 Winner:||Gailo Chop|
The Carlyon Cup is a more than handy race that generally attracts above average horses and has been won by some nice types over the years, including Apache Cat (2007), Northerly (2001), Veeandercross (1993) and the great miler Super Impose (1989).
Run under set weight plus penalty conditions, the Carlyon Cup tends to favour the better performed gallopers involved and horses tackling this race may continue on to a race like the Gr2 Blamey Stakes at Flemington, whic is run under similar conditions on Super Saturday of Racing in March
The upcoming Gr2 St George Stakes at the same track on Blue Diamond Day may be on the agenda for horses contesting this race. Classy Darren Weir galloper Gailo Chop (2018) is the last horse to win the Carlyon Cup and St George Stakes double, while Chris Waller's Foreteller (5th in 2013) managed to win the St George Stakes after finishing fifth in the Carlyon Cup.
Gailo Chop (2018) resumed from a spell to win this event in strong style and recent Carlyon Cup winners include Burning Front (2017-2016) and Smokin’ Joey (2015).
