Williams and his family collected the trophy when Nick Hall with the famous navy blue with white armbands and white cap on, booted home Fawkner to win the 2013 Caulfield Cup and Irish stayer Sir Isaac Newton has a great chance to carry the same colours to victory on Saturday.

Williams along with his wife Susie and son Nick will now share in the ownership of Sir Isaac Newton with Coolmore’s Sue Magnier and Michael Tabor.

Sir Isaac Newton is currently marked as a $12 chance for the Caulfield Cup with Ladbrokes.com.au and comes to Australia after finishing tenth in the Group 1 €250,000 QIPCO Irish Champion Stakes (2011m) at Leopardstown in Ireland on September 10 while his best win was four starts back in the Group 3 €65,000 Finlay Volvo International Stakes (2011m) at the Curragh in Ireland on June 26.

The Galileo five year old has drawn midfield at barrier nine in the original draw and will be ridden by top Irish jockey Colm O’Donoghue.

The O’Brien stable has been happy with the progress of Sir Isaac Newton since he has arrived at the Werribee International Horse Centre and TJ Comerford, O’Brien’s travelling head lad, is giving a positive report.

“He’s on the premises in Europe in Group 1s and I don’t see why anything has changed because he’s got on to an aeroplane,” Comerford said.

“He still has a good chance. Last time was a brilliant Group 1, probably the best Group 1 in Europe in regards of horses that have won Group 1s. They were just top class.

“He has been running well in really good quality races. He wouldn’t be as good as Highland Reel, but he is progressing and he is getting better.”

Crown Oaks winner Jameka sits at the top of the Caulfield Cup market order at $3.60 at Ladbrokes.com.au ahead of the Darren Weir trained Real Love at $7, English stayer Scottish at $7.50 and German stayer Articus at $9.
