|Date:||Saturday 3rd March 2018|
|Track:||Warwick Farm racecourse, Sydney|
|Race Type:||Quality Handicap|
The Liverpool City Cup is a quality handicap that tends to attract more than handy sprinters and the 1300m distance of the race lends itself to horses who can finish strongly over 1200m or those unable to run out a strong 1400m.
Horses contesting this race may come via the Gr3 Southern Cross Stakes which is run under the same conditions and Terravista (2014) was the last horse to win both races in the same year, while The Free Stater (2007) was the most recent before that.
A race such as the Gr3 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap run under similar conditons may be next on the agenda for horses competing this event.
McCreery (2017) resumed from a spell to score a classy win in this event and recent Liverpool City Cup winners include Charlie Boy (2016) and It's Somewhat (2015).
