The Cheveley Park Stakes is a Group 1 flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to two-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run on the Rowley Mile at Newmarket over a distance of 6 furlongs (1,207 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in late September or early October.

The event was established in 1899, and it was named after Cheveley Park, the Newmarket estate of Harry McCalmont. The inaugural winner was Lutetia, ridden by Tod Sloan.

The leading horses from the Cheveley Park Stakes often go on to compete in the following season's 1,000 Guineas. The first filly to win both events was Pretty Polly (1903–04), and the most recent was Special Duty (2009–10).

The race is currently held on the second day of Newmarket's three-day Cambridgeshire Meeting. This is the same day as the Middle Park Stakes, the equivalent race for colts.
