Craig Williams has secured the ride on one of the top international prospects in the 2017 Melbourne Cup set to be run at Flemington on November 7.
Williams partnered with Wall Of Fire in a canter on Tuesday with trainer Hugo Palmer confirming the Melbourne Cup booking later that evening.
Wall of Fire flashed home to run second in the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes earlier this month and currently sits in 29th position in the Melbourne Cup order of entry.
Wall of Fire is currently on the fourth line of betting in the Melbourne Cup at $11.
Delighted to confirm that Wall of Fire will be ridden by Craig Williams in the Melbourne Cup after the pair cantered together today.
