Fresh from another successful stint in Japan, Craig Williams returns to riding in Australia at Moonee Valley on Saturday. Following the completion of his three-month contract in Japan, Williams took a few weeks off to refresh and he’s now back and ready to attack the Spring carnival.

Leading Sydney trainers Peter Snowden and Gai Waterhouse have booked Williams to ride for them on Saturday.

Last season’s quality two-year-old Metastasio will be Williams’s first ride back, while he will also partner Reuben Percival for Waterhouse.
