Champion jockey Craig Williams is edging closer to a return to the saddle just weeks after a horror fall at Flemington.

Williams required surgery on his collarbone after the fall from Dubenenko, which also caused two broken ribs.

Star jockey Jamie Kah, who also fell in the race, suffered a severe concussion and was heavily sedated for a significant period of time to allow her brain to recover.

She’s currently completing rehab.

While an exact date for Williams’ return hasn’t been confirmed, the 45-year-old posted two videos to social media on Wednesday showing he is deep into his recovery.

The first, on a mechanical horse, showed him riding hands and heels. The second showed him continuing his recovery in the pool.
