The Cockram Stakes is a mares only race over the sprint journey of 1200m that often attracts more than handy females who may or may not go on to better races ahead during the Melbourne spring racing carnival.
The classier mares engaged will be advantaged by the set weights conditions of the race whch favours the better gallopers. Upcoming female only races such as the Gr2 Lets Elope Stakes at Flemington on Makybe Diva Stakes Day or the Gr3 How Now Stakes at Caulfield on Underwood Stakes Day are likely destinations for mares contesting this race.
Ellicazoom (2018) finished unplaced in the Listed Bunbury Stakes over 1400m in Western Australia before trekking to Victoria to win this race for the Lindsay Park stable of David & Ben Hayes & Tome Dabernig.
