The Sunline Stakes is a good class race for fillies & mares that is raced under level weight conditions and typically attracts above average types, rather than the elite. The level weight conditions of the race gives the better performed females a decided advantage over their rivals and more often than not the classier types will fight out the finish.

Mares contesting this event may have previously raced in similar type races such as the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes at Caulfield or the Group 3 Frances Tressady Stakes & Group 3 Matron Stakes at Flemington, which are all races for mares. Spanish Reef (2018) and Noble Protector (2015) both captured the Matron Stakes & Sunline Stakes in recent years.

Classy mare Lights Of Heaven (2nd in 2013) travelled to Sydney to win the Group 3 Neville Sellwood Stakes over 2000m at Rosehill following her second place finish in this event.

Consensus (2019) ran third in the Group 1 Haunui Classic over 1600m at Otaki in New Zealand before heading to Australia to win this event in comfortable fashion for the Stephen McKee stable.

Recent Sunline Stakes winners include I Am A Star (2017) and Miss Rose De Lago (2016).
