The Northwood Plume Stakes is a mares only sprint race over 1200 metres that takes place on the first day of the three-day Caulfield spring racing carnival and is typically a tough affair for punters with so many capable mares engaged, making the form a little hard to predict at times.
A race like the Gr3 How Now Stakes, held the previous month on Gr1 Underwood Stakes day, provides the ideal lead-up race to the Northwood Plume Stakes as it is run under the same conditons. Politeness (2015) is the last mare to claim the How Now Stakes and Northwood Plume Stakes double.
Sheidel (2016) won a handicap race over 1100m at Caulfield before taking out this event and recent recent Northwood Plume Stakes winners have been Griante (2014) and Aerobatics (2013).
Sheidel (2016) went on to win the Gr3 Begonia Belle Stakes over 1100m at Flemington on the first day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
