Williams quick to reuinte with Speediness

Suspension cost Craig Williams the Toorak Handicap ride on Speediness but there was no way he was going to miss out on the mount in the Crystal Mile.

Williams was straight on the telephone to trainer Colin Scott to get back on the sprinter-miler at Moonee Valley on Saturday.

"He was bitterly disappointed not to ride him in the Toorak and he was the first one on the phone after his run and was more than happy to jump on again," Scott said.

The globe-trotting jockey has ridden Speediness in 12 of his 24 races with Scott happy the horse has finally got a break with the barriers after poor draws in the Toorak Handicap and the Rupert Clarke Stakes.

"Bad barriers are death sentences but when you are racing for that sort of money you have to chance your hand," Scott said.

Speediness, rated a $5.50 chance, lived up to his name in the Toorak, coming from 18 to 20 lengths away at the 600m to flash home to be beaten 2-1/2 lengths into fourth.

Scott says with a better barrier draw, Speediness should position a lot closer to the lead in the Mile, a race that features the Guy Walter's promising Toydini and Doncaster Mile winner Sacred Falls.

"The only reason he has got that far back in previous runs is because of a bad draw," Scott said.

"From a good barrier I would expect him to be in the first half of the field."

If Speediness can put in another good effort he will continue on to the Group One Emirates Stakes at Flemington on November 9.

"He's never come up in the spring before - this is the first time," Scott said.
