29th June 2020 Familiar sight as Williams and Oliver lock horns

Craig Williams is relishing the now familiar battle with Damian Oliver as he bids to claim his ninth Melbourne jockeys’ premiership and fifth in succession. Two winners at Caulfield on Saturday, compared to Oliver's lone victory on the nine-race card, took Williams' metropolitan tally to 62 wins and he heads into the final month of the 2019-20 season with a seven-win lead. "It's a great competition with Damien," Williams said after bringing up his winning double aboard Morrissy (Snitzel) in the final race at Caulfield. "I think when you go through the racing annals for Victorian racing you're going to see this competition there in black and white, and it's fantastic. My team are working really hard but we can't do it without the support of the owners and trainers and most importantly the horses."
