Caulfield Cup winner Boom Time has been given a one-kilogram penalty for the Melbourne Cup.

The David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig-trained Boom Time caused an upset in Saturday's $3 million 2400m-handicap, carrying 52kg with Cory Parish aboard.

He earned a Melbourne Cup ballot exemption with his win at Caulfield and is scheduled to run in the famous 3200m-race on November 7 at Flemington where he will carry 53kg.
