Jockey Craig Williams has been given permission to ride Natural Blitz for Cranbourne trainer Doug Harrison in Monday's A$1.25 million Australian Cup at Flemington.

Natural Blitz ran second to Northerly in last year's race and this year strikes another Aussie champ in Lonhro.

Williams will ride at Sha Tin on Sunday, travel to Melbourne overnight and return on Tuesday. He will therefore not miss any Hong Kong meetings.
