RETIRED Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke will take on one of the biggest challenges of his career since leaving the pitch when he jumps aboard the 100-foot supermaxi Loyal for the 71st Sydney to Hobart.

TRAINERS Mick Price and Peter Moody concede favouritism to Press Statement in Saturday’s Caulfield Guineas — but they are not conceding the gun colt victory.
