Change of scenery does the trick

Fun Heroes still has the honour of being the last horse to beat Ambitious Dragon - in a fair contest - before their paths diverged in the time since that meeting almost a year ago in Class Four. One has gone on to three Group One wins and a serious shout for Horse Of The Year, while Fun Heroes (Brett Prebble) at least looks to have enjoyed a change of scenery and scored at his first run for Ricky Yiu Poon-fai in the Class Three Li Cup. 'I hardly think he's Ambitious Dragon but he might have another win in him,' said Prebble after a narrow and fortunate defeat of Fulfil A Wish in the final race. 'He travelled well through the race, was probably just at the end of it on the line and there's no doubt the other horse should have beaten him but he should improve for that. He does feel like he'll be better suited over, say 1,800m, than the 1,400m today so Ricky has something to work with.'
