Is it any wonder that the handicap system is rooted when this is the level of anysis applied to any decision making about that?

The minimum topweight for Group and Listed Handicap races at the time weights are
declared will be lowered 1kg as follows:
Group 1 and 2: 58.0kg
Group 3 and Listed: 59.0kg for races run at a distance up to and including 2199m
Group 3 and Listed: For races that are run at 2200m or further:
We note, in this regard, that 100 handicap races were analysed across the three racing
regions in the five most recent racing seasons. This analysis showed only 8% of the
winners of those races carried 59.0kg or more.
