The event was formerly known as the Bernard van Cutsem Stakes. It was named in memory of Bernard van Cutsem, a successful racehorse trainer who died in 1975.
The race was renamed the Superlative Stakes in 1991. It now honours Superlative, the winner of the July Stakes in 1983.
For a period the Superlative Stakes held Listed status. It was upgraded to Group 3 level in 2003, and to Group 2 in 2006.
It is currently staged on the final day of Newmarket's three-day July Festival meeting.
