The Brisbane Cup is a 2400m staying event traditionally held at Eagle Farm Racecourse in Brisbane. Raced during the Brisbane Winter Carnival in June, the Group 2 event is a quality handicap worth $300,000 in prize money. Previously taking place on the Queen’s birthday public holiday, the Brisbane Cup is now run on Stradbroke Handicap Day in June.

Stradbroke Handicap Day is host to three Group 1 races including the $1.5 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap, while the Brisbane Cup is one of the key support acts on the program along with the likes of the Group 1 Queensland Derby for three-year-old stayers and the Group 1 JJ Atkins for two-year-old milers.

The Brisbane Cup 2017 ran on Saturday June 10, 2017 over 2200m at Doomben Racecourse after being transferred from Eagle Farm.

The winter’s top Brisbane Cup 2017 betting odds and market links to Ladbrokes.com.au for you to back your favourite season stayers will be available right here the week of the race.

2017 Brisbane Cup Field

The Brisbane Cup field draws a smart line-up of winter stayers coming out of lead-up runs earlier in the carnival including the Group 3 Premier’s Cup (2200m) at Eagle Farm a fortnight prior or even the Group 2 PJ O’Shea Stakes – formerly the Eagle Farm Cup – the week before.

The official Brisbane Cup 2017 final field and barriers will be out the Wednesday of race week and published below in full.

The 2017 Brisbane Cup Field features 14 winter stayers with dual Perth Cup runner-up Neverland favourite to break a notable winning drought, while last weekend’s PJ O’Shea Stakes winning mare Single Gaze is also being kept safe in betting despite carrying the 59kg top weight from the outside barrier.
