The JRA Plate is a middle distance event for 3yo & upwards gallopers that will typically assemble a field of mostly local types who may have raced in similar type quality handicaps earlier in the carnival.
Staying types who contested races such as the Gr3 Skyhigh Stakes or Gr3 Neville Sellwood Stakes at Rosehill are most suited to this event. Western Symbol (2012) managed to claim the JRA Plate & Neville Selwood Stakes double.
Stayers wanting to drop back in distance might decide to tackle the JRA Plate, or improving types on an upward cycle who want to test themselves at group level over this distance. As history suggest, the winner of this race will just be more than handy type who is competitive in these type of races during the carnival.
Tally (2018) ran third in the Neville Sellwood over 2000m at Rosehill on his way to winning this event and recent JRA Plate winners include Top Of My List (2017) and Guardini (2016).
