The QTC Cup is a sprint event run under quality handicap conditions that's usually made up of mainly local horses and the odd visitor from interstate. It is generally an above average field of gallopers rather than high quality, although champion sprinter Schillaci did win this race in 1992. The race suites emerging types who can sneak in with a light weight.
The Gr3 BTC Cup is a handy lead up race to this event and horses contesting this race may continue on to a race like the Gr1 Stradbroke Handicap the following week at the same track or the Gr3 WJ Healy Stakes on the final day of the carnival, also at Eagle Farm. Top mare Ortensia (2009) went on to run third in the Stradbroke after winning this race.
The Monstar (2018) ran fifth in the Listed Luskin Star Stakes over 1300m at Scone in New South Wales before heading north to Queensland to win this event and recent QTC Cup winners include Deploy (2017) and Spill The Beans (2016).
