Caulfield Cup weights – Americain topweight for world’s richest mile and a half handicap

August 30, 2011

http://www.justhorseracing.com.au/news/australian-racing/caulfield-cup-weights-americain-topweight-for-worlds-richest-mile-and-a-half-handicap/

The weights for this year’s Caulfield Cup have been released, with Melbourne Cup winner Americain the topweight of 58kg.

He is just ahead of Breeders Cup Turf winner Dangerous Midge on 57.5kg and another former Melbourne Cup winner in Efficient, who has been weighted on 57kg despite not running since the 2009 Turnbull Stakes – a race he won impressively.

Last year’s Caulfield Cup winner Descarado is weighted on 56kg, a mark he shares with one time Tenno Sho winner Meiner Kitz.

Japan is unlikely to be represented in Melbourne this spring.

Imports rate highly throughout the weights, with the likes of Alandi (55.5kg), My Kingdom of Fife (55kg), Midas Touch (55kg), Glass Harmonium (54kg) and Unusual Suspect (54kg) all up in the weights.

Current favourite Lights of Heaven has 51.5kg, while Australian Derby and Guineas winner Shamrocker has half a kilogram more at 52kg.

Notably, champion jumper Black and Bent has not been given the limit – he is weighted on 50.5kg, a weight he is likely to receive for the Melbourne Cup.

This may make his task a little easier when it comes to gaining a run.

This year is the first time that Caulfield Cup weights have been released at a different time to Melbourne Cup weights, with nominations for the Melbourne Cup not taken until Thursday.

First declarations for the Caulfield Cup are taken next Tuesday.

Here are the weights for the Caulfield Cup, to be run on October 15:
