Racing Victoria chief handicapper Greg Carpenter also announced a 0.5kg penalty for 7YO gelding Baughurst (Tayasu Tsuyoshi-Mrs Parnell, by At Talaq) who won the Gr3 David Jones Cup (2000m) at Caulfield on Saturday. The penalty takes Baughurst's Melbourne Cup weight to 51kg (lifting him from 42nd to 36th in the latest elimination order) & Carpenter commented: "Baughurst has won twice since weights were released, as well as being placed in the Listed Naturalism Stakes (2000m) & Listed The Bart Cummings (2500m). He was a dominant winner last Saturday in recording his 1st victory at Group level."
