The Warwick Stakes is a weight-for-age event that typically suits good, fit winter types, classy sprinters, or staying types looking for a bit more ground. Any horses who might have went around in the Gr3 Missile Stakes a couple of weeks earlier are likely to continue on to this race and Pinwheel (2012) was the last galloper to take out the Missile Stakes & Warwick Stakes double in the same year.

Some quality horses have saluted in the Warwick Stakes over the years including Racing to Win (2008), Lonhro (2001-2003), Sunline (1999), Filante (1996-97), Super Impose (1990-91) and Groucho (1989), and horses contesting this event are most likely to head on to a race like the upcoming Chelmsford Stakes at Randwick.

The John O'Shea trained Complacent (unp in 2015) finished down the track in this race before winning the Chelmsford Stakes at his next start at big odds, while placegetters Danleigh (3rd in 2012), O'Lonhro (2nd in 2009) and Metal Bender (2010) all went on to win the Chelmsford Stakes at their next start. Typically the classiest horses will figure prominently in this race.

Better quality types might head on to a race like the Gr1 George Main Stakes at Randwick and Sacred Halls (4th in 2014) and Royal Descent (2nd in 2014) managed to quinella the George Main Stakes after running in the Warwick Stakes.

Easier races such as the the Gr2 Tramway Stakes may also be on the agenda for gallopers contesting this race and Tiger Tees (2014) finished runner-up in the Tramway after winning this event, while Tagus (7th in 2012) won the Tramway at his next start after his unplaced run in the Warwick Stakes.

Winx (2017-2016) was resuming from a spell when she scored an amazing last to first victory to excite her legion of fans and recent Warwick Stakes winners include Royal Descent (2015) and Tiger Tees (2014).
