Champion hoop Craig Williams says resurgent veteran Humidor is 'ready' for Saturday's Cox Plate.
The Chris Waller-trained eight-year-old booked his spot in the Cox Plate with a stunning first-up performance for the stable in the Feehan Stakes.
And Williams is confident the horse can continue his strong record at The Valley, where he ran second behind Winx in the 2017 Cox Plate and third in 2018.
Humidor finished off his Cox Plate preparations at Breakfast With The Best on Tuesday morning, working nicely with Williams on board.
"He is ready for Saturday's race. I could feel after riding him a couple of times and in races how much he has an affiliation for Moonee Valley," Williams said.
"I was a passenger on his back this morning. I tried to control his work and Chris and his stable foreman in Melbourne Jo (Taylor) asked me to do.
"He was sheer determined to really get out there and really strut his stuff this morning."

Humidor has drawn barrier 14 for Williams and is currently a $27 chance with Sportsbet.
Williams said it is Humidor's profile that helps him get around The Valley.
"He reminds me of Fields Of Omagh, but he's a bit younger than Fields Of Omagh when I was lucky enough to win his second Cox Plate on him," Williams said.
"Humidor has been going really well through his preparation in target for this year's Cox Plate.
"I can feel how well he moves around this track and he knows the place."
