Date: Saturday 29th February 2020
Track: Randwick racecourse, Sydney
Distance: 1300 metres
Race Type: Quality Handicap
Status: Group 3
Prizemoney: $150,000
2019 Winner: Dreamforce

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.

Guy Walter mare Skyerush (2013) had a very good autumn return after winning this race, taking out the Gr3 Doncaster Prelude and Gr3 Emancipation Stakes later in the carnival.

Crack Me Up (2018) finished unlaced in the restricted Magic Millions Cup over 1400m on the Gold Coast in Queensland before heading south to win this event in impressive style and recent Liverpool City Cup winners include McCreery (2017) and Charlie Boy (2016).
