James McDonald Chasing Elusive Caulfield Cup

Champion jockey James McDonald is gearing up to clinch the one major Australian racing title that has eluded him: the Caulfield Cup.

With an unwavering commitment, he’s slated to ride at 54kg, a weight he hasn’t approached in over two years, as he teams up with Francesco Guardi this coming Saturday.

To ensure he’s in peak condition for the event, McDonald has been meticulously preparing both on and off the track.

The partnership between McDonald and Guardi has previously demonstrated its prowess with a memorable victory in last year’s Group 2 Moonee Valley Gold Cup.

The Chris Waller-trained horse, Francesco Guardi, is anticipated to be a strong contender, even though challenges lie ahead, especially considering Guardi’s recent performance in the G1 Turnbull Stakes.

Australian online bookies currently position Francesco Guardi at $16 odds for the sought-after Caulfield Cup.
