Weights have been released for the 2020 Melbourne Cup with the Aidan O’Brien-trained Anthony Van Dyck being allocated top weight of 58.5kg.

The five-year-old entire has raced 15 times for five victories, which includes winning the Group 1 Investec Derby Stakes (2420m) at Epsom Racecourse.

Defending Melbourne Cup champion Vow And Declare has been allocated 57kg which is 5kg more than what he carried in 2019. Vow And Declare is trained by Danny O’Brien and was runner up in the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) prior to his Melbourne Cup victory.

Vow And Declare’s stablemate Russian Camelot, the Group 1 South Australian Derby (2500m), has been allocated 53.5kg for the Melbourne Cup.

Surprise Baby carried 53.5kg when fifth in the 2019 Melbourne Cup and has only been given an extra kilo for 2020 with 54.5kg being allocated.

The Chris Waller-trained five-year-old mare Verry Elleegant has been given 55kg and history is against the mare’s chances of winning ‘the race that stops a nation.’

“Makybe Diva is the only mare to carry more than 55kg to victory in the Melbourne Cup having done so in 2004 (55.5kg) and 2005 (58kg), the latter being the last time a mare has placed in our most famous race,” Racing Victoria’s Greg Carpenter said.

2019 Melbourne Cup runner up Prince Of Arran has been allocated 54.5kg, which is 0.5kg more than his previous attempt at the race.
