Francesca Cumani – born in 1983 – is a presenter of ITV’s Horse Racing coverage.

She grew up in the Newmarket stables of her Derby-winning father, Luca, and rode in races as an amateur.

Having studied languages at university, she got an unexpected entry into broadcasting seven years ago when Australia’s Channel 7 asked her to be on their Melbourne Cup panel; she had become a regular at that race meeting while looking after her father’s runners.

She went on to become that station’s lead racing analyst and hosted The Winning Post on CNN.

She is married to Rob Archibald and has a son named Harry.
