Melbourne Cup Penalties Awarded To Caulfield Winners

Caulfield winners Alcopop and Allez Wonder have received their Melbourne Cup penalties by Racing Victoria handicapper Greg Carpenter.

After winning the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes, Alcopop has been handed a 1.5kg penalty and is now weighted on 52.5kg for the Melbourne Cup.

Allez Wonder has been given a half a kilo penalty after winning the Group 1 Toorak Handicap last Saturday, totalling 50.5kg.

The Bart Cumming trained mare has now jumped from 49th to 17th in the elimination order while Alcopop, trained by Jake Stephens is 26th from 63rd on the order of entry.

While Allez Wonder is now guaranteed a position in the Melbourne Cup, Alcopop still needs to climb the ladder a few more steps.

Carpenter has already penalised Alcopop once before with a 1kg penalty for his win in the 2040m JRA Cup at Moonee Valley last month.
