Cup Penalties For Newport & Light Vision
Racing Victoria chief handicapper Greg Carpenter announced:
- A 1.5kg penalty to last Saturday's Gr1 The Metropolitan (2400m) winner Newport for both the Gr1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) & Gr1 Melbourne Cup (3200m). The penalty means the Paul Perry trained 6YO will now carry 51.5kg in both races.
- A 1kg penalty to Light Vision for the Melbourne Cup (Light Vision did not accept for the Caulfield Cup) for his win in Saturday's The Bart Cummings (2500m).
