The Dark Jewel Classic is a race for fillies & mares only that generally attracts a capacity field of more than handy females in various stages of their campaigns, making it a tough job for punters trying to find the winner.

Those fillies & mares down in the weights and on the improve are ones to watch, especially if they can creep in under the handicapper's guard.

Hawkesbury's Group 3 Hawkesbury Crown is the ideal lead-up race to the Dark Jewel Classic. Of late, smart galloper Aerobatics (2nd in 2014) won the Hawkesbury Crown before finishing runner-up in this race. Daysie Doom (2016) and Seaside (2014) finished second & sixth respectively in the Hawkesbury Crown before tasting success here.

Con Te Partiro (2019) resumed from a spell to win this event in stylish fashion for the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott stable.

Recent Dark Jewel Classic winners include Siren's Fury (2018) and Daysee Doom (2017).
