The newest team in town struck again when Brett Prebble won the SKOL Cup (1,200m) on Final Answer for John Moore, but he was wondering mid-race what kind of reception he might get if he didn't get home first. 'John's away at the sales in Sydney and I've gone to the front, against my instructions - wouldn't have been a great look if he didn't win,' Prebble said after the five-year-old led from pillar to post in the all-weather sprint. 'He's been having no luck trying to get in behind for cover and getting stuck out wide, and I thought he might just appreciate something uncomplicated. He got there pretty easily and still did a good job for a horse who isn't that big and carrying 133 pounds.'
