Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival Form Guide

With the first Group 1 taking place in February, there’s not great form guides on offer for the likes of the CF Orr Stakes and Lightning Stakes. 

However, because the carnival runs for February and March, punters can use the early season form as a guide for the Group 1’s later in the Melbourne Autumn Carnival. 

Because it runs simultaneously with the Sydney Autumn Carnival, runners tend to be targeted towards only one carnival, but they can mix and match. 

Form out of the Melbourne Autumn Carnival has stacked up well during The Championships, which is the main two meetings during the Sydney Autumn Carnival. 

The likes of Winx have used races in Melbourne as lead-up races to the Sydney Autumn, but that’s not detracting from the quality races on offer in Melbourne. 

It has a newly-minted All Star Mile, which has captured the attention of many. 

The Blue Diamond Stakes is a big race for the juveniles and one of the better form guides for the Golden Slipper. 

Races like the Australian Cup are held in high regard.
