The National Stakes is a sprint race for two-year-olds and tends to attract mainly above average local gallopers who may have previously contested a race like the Gr3 SA Breeders Stakes earlier in the carnival.
Now and then the race can throw up an emerging type and Majestic Music (2009) went on to win the Gr2 Edward Manifold Stakes the following spring at the Flemington carnival as a three-year-old before running second in the Gr2 Sandown Guineas at Sandown.
The listed Dequetteville Stakes run over 1100m at the same track earlier in the carnival has proven a good guide to the National Stakes in recent years with Dinkum Diamond (2012) and Vivi Veloce (2013) both winning this race after running second and fifth respectively in the Delequette Stakes.
Marcel From Madrid (2018) took out a 2YO Maiden over 1106m at Benalla in Victoria before making the journey to Adelaide to win this event and recent National Stakes winners include I'll Have A Bit (2017) and I Am A Star (2016).
