2020 Winner: Le Juge

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.

Le Juge (2019) took out a Handicap race over 1835m at Eagle Farm before scoring a narrow victory in this event for the Chris Waller stable.

Recent Chairman's Handicap winners include Anton En Avant (2018) and Stampede (2017).
