The Craven Plate field contains some very impressive staying horses, usually with extensive black type experience in their racing history. Acceptance into the Craven Plate field almost comes with a mandatory prerequisite of considerable success elsewhere. It is for this reason that the Craven Plate field has acquired and maintained a strong reputation for top quality – only the best of the best enter.
