Weights have been released for the 2019 Caulfield Cup (2400m) which is set to take place at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday, October 19.

Racing Victoria’s (RV) Executive General Manager – Racing, Greg Carpenter, has handicapped Godolphin pair, Avilius and Hartnell, on top with each to carry 58kg in the $5.15 million contest.

“In the Caulfield Cup, Avilius and Hartnell have both proven themselves at the highest level and thus have been assigned equal topweight among the 145 entries,” Carpenter said.
“In the past 12 months, Avilius has won two Group 1 races at 2000 metres or further and was Australia’s highest rated stayer, while Hartnell has maintained his place among the nation’s elite performers. 
“The 2018 Caulfield Cup topweight Humidor has been assigned one kilo less for this year’s renewal, whilst Homesman’s superb win in the Group 2 Feehan Stakes at The Valley last Saturday has earned him 56.5kg in the Caulfield Cup and 56kg in the Melbourne Cup.  
“Homesman had 53kg when a narrow second to Best Solution in last year’s Caulfield Cup.”
