Rookie's final-race win helps establish him as a trainer to follow Rookie trainer David Hall landed one of the biggest successful betting moves in recent years yesterday at Sha Tin with Win For All after his backers nervously watched while the horse refused all attempts to load him into the starting gates. On a day when all three of the first-season trainers won races, Hall's final-race victory with Win For All (Brett Prebble) was prefaced by a massive late plunge as the horse's odds dropped from $140 to $48 and favourite. But supporters suffered the dual agony of watching their odds crash down while the subject of the plunge was potentially ruining his own chances by giving merry hell to all and sundry at the barrier stalls. With the race close to start time and Win For All having come down to $75, the horse refused once more and turned away as another wave of money poured in to slash his odds to $60 and the observant Sha Tin crowd roared in excitement. Again a loud cheer went up as he displaced John Moore's Winning Power as favourite but was still unhappy about entering the stalls. 'Whoever put the money on would have been getting pretty nervous,' said Hall, who made it three wins for the season in a consolation for his former stayer Makybe Diva winning the Melbourne Cup earlier in the week. 'Well, I got a cup for this race - it wasn't a Melbourne Cup but it was a cup just the same.' Win For All's ability to settle over yesterday's 1,600 metres distance was something of a query beforehand as he has been quite a keen going horse at times in the past and the antics at the start must have concerned the trainer. 'Actually, he went in good as gold last week as soon as they put a hood on him and it was the same today. That seems to do the trick,' Hall said. 'As for the mile, well, he had had three weeks between runs last week so I think that's why he was a bit keen in the 1,400m. He was unlucky not to win there and I hoped that backing him up a week later would take the freshness out of him and help him settle and that's what happened.' Prebble bounced Win For All straight outside the leader Danehill Warrior to the turn and the gelding travelled as kindly as he has ever done. 'Today he was great. That quick backup settled him down and after he got into the spot and travelled kindly, I was quite confident,' Prebble said. Win For All has now won twice for Hall, who said he had not considered the next plan for the horse. 'Well he's firmly in Class Three now and we'll look at the options,' Hall said. 'This is probably his distance. He may sneak an 1,800m or 2,000m in time but his sire Barathea was a miler and he seems to be like his sire.' Hall's debut winner, Euphoric Kid, also featured a strong betting move at Happy Valley and yesterday's plunge will have the Australian earmarked as a trainer to follow.
