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. Spanish Whisper (2nd in 2019) captured the Let's Elope Stakes following her runner-up finish in this event..

Pippie (2019) led all the way to defeat Diamond Effort in a BM78 race over 1100m at Caulfield before repeating the dose in this event for the John & Chris Meagher stable.

Previous Cockram Stakes winners include Ellicazoom (2018) and Savanna Amour (2017).
