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. It's typically a tough affair for punters with 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.

Mares from this event looking to tackle longer distance events might head on to the Gr2 Tristarc Stakes the following week at the same track on Gr1 Caulfield Cup day.

Cool Passion (2017) ran third in the Listed Wylie Stakes over 1100m at Morphettville in Adelaide before heading to Melbourne to score a stylish victory in this event. Recent Northwood Plume Stakes winners include Sheidel (2016) and have been Griante (2014).
