“King of the Valley” Caspar Fownes has called on old ally Brett Prebble to partner a couple of his charges on Wednesday night when Cheerfuljet and Sweet Bean loom as leading chances at the city track.
Brett Prebble is an Australian jockey who first moved to Hong Kong in 2002, having already won two Melbourne premierships. For many years, he was Douglas Whyte's arch-rival, finishing second in the jockeys' championship six times, including a narrow loss on the final day in 2009-10. In 2010, he was the first jockey to ride six winners in a day, a feat since accomplished by Whyte and Joao Moreira. He has been associated with Hong Kong stars like Bullish Luck, Sacred Kingdom, Cape Of Good Hope and Lucky Nine.
