Mega-owner  Lloyd Williams will rely on Fawkner to win Saturday’s Grp I Caulfield Cup (2400m). Williams’s Macedon Lodge stable told Racing Victoria stewards on Monday that Fawknerwill be its only Caulfield Cup runner. Six more stable contenders are being switched to other key  targets.

Macedon Lodge had five runners guaranteed a Caulfield Cup start on Monday morning after Sea Moon won last Saturday’s Grp 2 Herbert Power to earn ballot exemption. Fawkner was Macedon Lodge’s lowest-rated runner in the Caulfield Cup order of entry at equal 23rd but the withdrawal of his stablemates has all but assured him of a run. Luxbet has Fawkner as a $13 chance.  This price is expected to be shortened up..

The Melbourne Racing Club will declare the final Caulfield Cup field on Tuesday morning.
