Marlon Morrison then decided to attack and was followed by Simon and Williams. They led all the way on the downward journey before Simon went into overdrive at New Road Vreed-en-Hoop followed by Williams with Simon prevailing to notch up another victory. Simon, Williams, Morrison and Persaud claimed two prime prizes each.
