The Zeditave Stakes is a race for colts & geldings only and tends to attract above average three-year-olds who may or may not have contested similar type group races earlier in their career. The weighted conditions of the race give a decided advantage to the better performed gallopers and generally the well fancied runners come to the fore.
Overshare (2018) ran second in the Manfred Stakes over 1200m at Caulfield before proving too strong in this event and recent Zeditave Stakes winners include Benz (2017) and Santa Ana Lane (2016).
