The Premier's Cup is a handicap distance event over 2200m that is a good lead up race to the Gr2 Brisbane Cup over 2400m in two weeks time at Eagle Farm. The race will generally attract gallopers who previously competed in the Gr3 Chairman's Handicap a fortnight earlier and the field tends to be made up of predominantly handy local stayers.

In recent times Larry's Never Late (3rd in 2010) ran placings in both the Chairman's Handicap & Premier's Cup, while Fulmonti (3rd in 2008) and Mandela (3rd in 2007) both ran third in the Chairman's Handicap on their way to winning this race. Fulmonti continued on to the 2008 Brisbane Cup where he finished second behind Viewed.

The Candy Man (2019) took out a CL5-SW event over 1800m at the Gold Coast racecourse before capturing this race in stylish fashion for the Barry Baldwin stable.

Recent Premier's Cup winners include Rising Red (2018) and Kaiser Franz (2017).
