Craig Williams is set to miss Cox Plate day due to a 12 meeting suspension handed down to him by stewards for his ride in the Caulfield Cup.
Williams was on board Real Love in the Caulfield Cup, one of the highly fancied runners but failed to run in the top 3, finishing fifth overall.
He will now miss Cox Plate day where he has booked a ride on board Hauraki.
Williams has had previous success in the Cox Plate riding Pinker Pinker to victory in 2011.
Early indications are that Williams will appeal the suspension.
