The 2016 Liverpool City Cup is a Group 3 race held each year during February March at Warwick Farm Racecourse in Sydney. Held during the famous Sydney autumn racing carnival the event is an open handicap run across a trip of 1300m.

The Liverpool City Cup is held on the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes Day, the major card for Warwick Farm in the autumn season.

It is worth $150,000 but importantly it also provides the winner with a ballot exemption for the Group 1 Doncaster Handicap.

With that in mind the natural route beyond this race is obvious and it will be up to a mile and up in grade for the winners.

For those that don’t quite make the grade something like the Newcastle Newmarket Handicap at Group 3 level may be a better option.

For a form line leading into this look to the Group 3 Southern Cross Stakes which is run under the same conditions.

In 2007 The Free Starter won their before winning this event as well.

Other winners include Boasting which went back to back in 1989 and 1990 as well as All Archie that did the same the very next two years.

More recently Bomber Bill won it in 2002, Danleigh in 2008 and Triple Elegance in 2011.
