The Underwood Stakes is the logical lead up towards the Turnbull (2000m) and it follows up from the Makybe Diva (1600m) a fortnight earlier.
The Makybe Diva (1600m) has been an outstanding form race for the Underwood. Over the last 10 years, six winners of the Underwood have come through the Makybe Diva.
