The Chairman's Handicap is a middle distance race run under quality handicap conditions and tends to attract handy local stayers rather than the upper echelon. Over the years some good gallopers have managed to get their name on the honour roll including Society Beau (2002), Iron Horse (1997), Juggler (1996) and Arborea (1995).
The Gr2 Hollindale Stakes held earlier in the carnival at the Gold Coast racecourse may provide potential candidates for the Chairmans Handicap and upcoming distance races like the Gr3 Premier's Cup at Doomben could be next on the horizon for staying types contesting this event.
A race like the Gr2 PJ O'Shea Stakes might also be on the radar and Quintessential (2013) was the most recent galloper to claim the Chairmans Handicap and PJ O'Shea Stakes double.
Anton En Avant (2018) finished unplaced in the Listed Tails Stakes over 1600m at Doomben before finding his best form to win this event and recent Chairman's Handicap winners include Stampede (2017) and Real Love (2016) and Epingle (2015).
