The Cherry Hinton Stakes is a Group 2 flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to two-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run on the July Course at Newmarket over a distance of 6 furlongs (1,207 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in early July.

The event was established in 1947, and the inaugural running was won by Great Fun. The present system of race grading was introduced in 1971, and for a period the Cherry Hinton Stakes was classed at Group 3 level. It was promoted to Group 2 status in 1996.

Several winners of the Cherry Hinton Stakes have gone on to achieve victory in one or more of the following season's Classics. The latest of these is Attraction, who won the 1,000 Guineas and the Irish 1,000 Guineas in 2004. The race is presently held on the opening day of Newmarket's three-day July Festival meeting.
