Williams took out the Group 3 Mermaid Stakes aboard Gullveig in Japan earlier in the year before finishing second on Rulership in Group 1 Company. He returns to Japan after Victorian spring racing for a further contract.

Williams rode the Ed Dunlop-trained runner on Monday mornng at Werribee for the first time.
