If Craig Williams wins the 2015-16 Victorian metro jockeys' premiership, it is fair to say Saturday will be remembered as a crucial turning point, reports racing.com.

But if you ask the ever-humble horseman himself about his stunning day in the saddle, he somewhat downplays the feat - his second five-timer in 10 years - and credits the horses and trainers who he works with.

After all, the 39-year-old says his favourite element of racing is the combination of two people (trainer and jockey) and an animal coming together to achieve something.

But the four-time premiership winner, one behind Dwayne Dunn in pursuit of a fifth crown, heaped praise on the other two elements of the triumvirate as he won for each of Matthew WilliamsJohn O'SheaDarren WeirStephen Brown and Lee and Anthony Freedman.

"I had a good day," Williams understated on Racing.com's Correct Weight on RSN 927.

"I was very confident with my book of rides. It probably began to look a bit better too until two of the horses I thought potentially could win weren't able to accept.

"I really had to rely on the horses a couple of times.

"Trenchant - I put him into the picture far too early. He really fought hard for me, put his heart on the line.

"Telopea... Darren Weir and his team has done a great job with her. She's been a great mare for me. I've had three rides on her for three wins.

"We always thought she was Stakes class, but having the throat operation has been the key to her, and she gave me an armchair ride.

"Lord Von Costa was fantastic. He settled. Stephen Brown's done a great job to turn him around. He had to step up in trip, and he had been aggressive his first two starts - he had an opportunity to change gear, but they opted not to.

"Ruettiger, he looked like he put the writing on the wall the time before, but Lee Freedman's instructions were perfect to win that race."

Williams started the day five winners behind Dunn in the premiership race, but he said his mind is not distracted by the surge for silverware.

"There's no extra pressure," he said.

"I had great rides - I wanted those horses to get results.

"Regardless, if it's business time at the end of the championship or the start, you're at Headquarters, it's a major day, you always want to be riding winners.

"There's no extra pressure - it's just a bonus of 'the [premiership] race is right on'.

"I was just fortunate I had a great book of rides. Those horses were well-prepared and they delivered on the day."

Williams said he has strong books at each of the Moonee Valley and Caulfield meetings in the upcoming week.

He rides Girl Guide first-up in the Group 3 Sir John Monash Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield.

Williams said he gave away five pairs of goggles at Flemington on Saturday. Perhaps the crowd would be advised to stay close to the yard in weeks to come. There might be more mementoes yet.
