OMF Melbourne Cup Raceday: Jockey comments from beaten favourites

After each race, we spoke to jockeys of beaten favourites to hear their thoughts.

Race 1: Chevalier Produce 2200

Mongolian Legend Mathew Cameron

He was a bit disappointing, we had a nice run but just like last start he was a bit on and off the bit. Hopefully he will improve off that.

Race 2: Carlton Events 1600

Grand Soleil Vinnie Colgan


Race 3: Ideal Electrical Legrand 1200

Yearn Trudy Thornton

It was a huge run, 1400m and she wins.

Race 4: Auckland Co-Op Taxis 1200

Glass Slipper Sam Weatherley (a)

It was a good run, she will take a lot of improvement going forward. Once she steps up to 1400m she will be better off.

Race 5: John Deere Agrowquip 1600

Fashionably Opie Bosson

We got into a reasonable position, but we ended up just being too far back, it's very hard to make ground up today.

Race 6: Carbine Club Trophy

Camino Rocoso Michael Coleman

It was a good run, he is an improver.

Race 7: Ellerslie Jewellers & Engravers 1400

Top Prospect Alysha Collett

He was desperately unlucky and was still on the bit at the line.

Race 8: OMF Stakes

Chance To Dance Opie Bosson


Race 9: Bunnings Trade 1400

Aero De Paris Michael Coleman

He just overrated too much for his own good.

Race 10: Scott Electrical 2400

Clarify Shaun McKay (a)

He travelled good and I thought he would have let down a bit better, but he is off to the paddock for a couple of weeks for a freshen up.
