Xubuntu hasn't been available with Wubi since release 12.10. The lead Xubuntu developer, Pasi Lallinaho, requested that it be removed (reference):

It's still available on the 12.04 Wubi

There is a way to trick Wubi into installing Xubuntu, if you don't mind a bit of work. This is not recommended, but I did it and wrote up the Howto here:
