Mongolian Khan Cops 1kg Penalty After Caulfield Win

19 October, 2015

After his convincing win in the Caulfield Cup on Saturday, Mongolian Khan has only been hit with a 1kg penalty for the Melbourne Cup.

It’s a good result for the four-year-old entire, who will be carrying the same weight as Might and Power did in 1997 when he collected a Cups double, also as a four-year-old.

Mongolian Khan has tightened into an ($11) chance after the win, while Japanese stayer Fame Game has shortened further into ($4.80) after storming home in the same race and will carry 57kg.

Last years winner, Protectionist ($67), will share top weight at 58kg with Snow Sky ($21).
