The Lord Mayors Cup is a 1600m race held under weight-for-age conditions that is typically contested by predominantly local gallopers. Not usually an overly high class affair, more often than not the Lord Mayors Cup is simply an event for handy types, although 1999 Caulfield Cup winner Sky Heights (2001) managed to win this race.

Lord Mayors Cup combatants may head on to a race like the Gr2 PJ O'Shea Stakes at Eagle Farm on Oaks Day, although it has not been a great guide in recent years.

Three-year-olds might consider tackling the Gr2 Queensland Guineas on Stradbroke day the following month at Eagle Farm. Rothesay (2010) went on to win the Gr2 Queensland Guineas at his next start.

Duca Valentinois (2018) finished runner-up in the Listed Scone Cup over 1600m at Scone in New South Wales before making the journey to Queensland to win this event in comfortable fashion and recent Lord Mayors Cup winners include Col 'n' Lil (2017) and Mighty Lucky (2016).
