Trainer Chris Waller has had decent success in the race of late. He has won the Furphy Plate the last two years, first with Kaonic and then with Yulong prince. In the last 20 years, no jockey has quite been able to replicate that success.

The fastest time in the Furphy Plate over the last 21 years belongs to Depeche Mode, who ran 1:47.50 back in 1999. The time is also the Flemington 1800m track record. 2019 winner Yulong Prince clocked 1:50.98 to claim his victory.
