The 2015 Roma Cup is a Group 3 race held at the end of May or the first part of June each year at Belmont Racecourse in Perth. It is a weight for age contest run over a short trip of 1200m. The race is one of the feature events run at Belmont every year and is worth $125,000.

This race is almost exclusively made up of local Perth based runners and those that travel down from the northern part of the state.

It forms part of an attractive little double header culminating with the Belmont Sprint in June which is also a Group 3 race.

The double went through a bit of a dry spell for a while before Grand Nirvana picked up the pair of wins in 2011.

Before that Modem did it in 2004 a year after Tribula had done the same.

It is a great form guide though and a host of horses have won one and placed in the other or placed in both runs.

Grand Nirvana’s 2011 win was his second after winning in 2009 and running third in 2010.

Other champions include Doctor Golly which went back to back in 1992 and 1993, Star System in 2000, No Questions in 2007 and Vain Raider in 2010.
