Niwot gets no penalty for Melbourne Cup

Racing Victoria’s chief handicapper Greg Carpenter has not penalised Niwot for the  Melbourne Cup after his easy win in today’s Group 3 Lexus Stakes (2500m) at Flemington.

Niwot leapt from 34th in the order of entry to a certain Melbourne Cup runner with his three-length win.

Carpenter said Niwot was “very impressive” but “as a seven-year-old his form is well exposed”.
