The Metropolitan winner ‘Sir John Hawkwood’ has received a 1.5kg penalty for the Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup.

Sir John Hawkwood was allocated 51.5kg for both the Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup before receiving the 1.5kg penalty taking his weight for the races to 53kg.

Junoob received the same weight penalty in 2014 for winning The Metropolitan.

“Sir John Hawkwood’s penalty of 1.5kg is the same as that which was handed to Junoob in 2014, before he finished seventh in that year’s Caulfield Cup behind Admire Rakti,” Carpenter said.

“Tawqeet is the last horse to complete the Metropolitan Handicap – Caulfield Cup double a decade ago. He was handed a one kilogram penalty in 2006, and as such, subsequently carried 53.5kg to victory at Caulfield.”
