The Neville Sellwood Stakes is run over the middle distance of 2000 and suits those gallopers who might be stepping up from a mile to tackle a longer race, or any staying types looking for a good hit out on the way to longer distance events during the carnival.

Generally not a high quality race, the Neville Selwood Stakes tends to attract more than handy gallopers who will be competitive in similar type races without rising to any great heights further down the track.

Assign (2017) finished unplaced in the Listed Victoria Cup over 2000m at Caulfield in Melbourne before heading to Sydney to win this event and recent Neville Sellwood Stakes winners include It's Somewhat (2016) and Pornichet (2015).
