Caulfield Cup Weights To Be Raised "By At Least 2kg"
Racing Victoria also confirmed Gr1 Caulfield Cup weights will be raised “by at least 2kg” after original top-weight Americain was not among yesterday’s 3rd acceptances for the world’s richest 2400m handicap. A total of 40 horses remain in contention for the $2.5 million race, with imported duo Midas Touch & My Kingdom Of Fife now the highest weighted on 55kg ahead of Hong Kong star Mighty High on 54.5kg. Under the conditions of the Caulfield Cup, the top-weight must carry a minimum of 57kg on raceday.
