WEIGHTS FOR CUPS NEW ZEALANDERS EXCLUDED Rec. 12.5 p.m. MELBOURNE, this day. Lawrence, regarded as the best horse in Australia, has been given top weight for both the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups with 9.9 and 9.6 respectively. The only horse to win the Melbourne Cup in recent years with more than 9.6 was Peter Pan, which scored in 1934 with 9.10. There are 23 rejected nominations, including three New Zealanders—Amorlad, Caithness, and Fortune's Smile—because these horses came within the restrictions imposed on account of shortage of fodder.
