The 2011 Metropolitan Handicap is a 2400 metre handicap race open to horses three years and up that jumps off at the Royal Randwick race course on Saturday the 1st of October at 5:20pm AUEST. It offers prize money totaling $400,000 with a first prize worth $240,000 and has attracted seventeen quality runners seeking to continue their Spring campaigns.

This year’s field is led by the John P. Thompson trained Trusting who's the Metropolitan Handicap Odds favourite priced in the $5.00-$6.00 range. Trusting is followed by the David Vandyke trained Lamasery priced in the $5.50-$7.00 range with the Gai Waterhouse trained Tullamore (NZ) rounding out the top three priced in the $8.00-$9.00 range.
