Track: Caulfield racecourse, Melbourne

The Ethereal Stakes is a three-year-old fillies race that provides the perfect lead up to the longer feature races to come for females during the Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemington.

Races such as the Gr2 Wakeful Stakes over 2000m and Gr1 VRC Oaks over 2500m at Flemington will be on the radar of any capable fillies running around in this race and Set Square (2015) was the last filly to claim the Ethereal Stakes & VRC Oaks double.

Eleonora (2016) finished unplaced in the Gr2 Edward Manifold Stakes over 1600m at Flemington before proving too good for her rivals in this event and recent Ethereal Stakes winners have been Dawnie Perfect (2015) and Set Square (2014).
