Moudre Receives Light Weight in 2010 Caulfield Cup Handicaps

The weights for the 2010 Caulfield Cup have been announced by the Victoria Racing Club’s chief handicapper Greg Carpenter today with early favourite for the race Moudre receiving just 51kg.

The $2.5 million Caulfield Cup (2400m) is due to run on October 16 and the full list of 237 nominees have been handicapped, with the Lloyd Williams-owned 2009 Irish St Leger winner Alandi and 2007 Melbourne Cup champion Efficient topping the weights at 58kg.

Ciaron Maher’s bush-trained gelding Moudre has been the biggest mover in the 2010 Caulfield Cup betting markets, firming into the $10 favourite at Ladbrokes.com.au over the past week.

The light weight allocation is likely to see even more punters getting behind the in-form galloper, so the earlier you get in the better odds you will receive.

The other early favourite for the Caulfield Cup paying $11 through Ladbrokes.com.au is Bart Cummings’ top mare Dariana, who is also an excellent lightweight chance having received 51.5kg kg in the handicaps.

Shocking, who won the 2009 Melbourne Cup, will be forced to carry a hefty 57kg in the Caulfield Cup if he runs this year and has been allocated the same weight for the 2010 Melbourne Cup also.

Last year’s Cox Plate champion So You Think, also trained by the Cups King, has been allocated 56kg for the Caulfield Cup as has Chris Waller’s Metal Bender and international hopeful Campanologist.

The 2010 Melbourne Cup weights were also released today.
