Eagle Technology Raceday: Eagle Technology Stakes Jockey Comments

We spoke to jockeys competing in the Eagle Technology Stakes on Eagle Technology Raceday to get their comments on how the race went.

1st Hiflyer Jonathan Parkes

It was a very pleasing win. He lived up to my expectations of him. He relaxed beautifully in the run and that is promising stepping up to 2000m.

2nd Splurge Michael McNab

I'm a bit gutted. I really thought I was home. He went a huge race though.

3rd Volkstok'n'barrell Leith Innes

He went super. He jumped really well. When I presented him he came a little wider than I'd have liked and let the winner out but in saying that he just locked up the last bit.

4th Ronchi Grant Cooksley

It was a very good run, the 1600m in this company is just too sharp for him.

5th Gravano Mark Du Plessis

It was a great run from the widest barrier. Unfortunately we were still caught three wide with cover. It was a great effort.

6th Stolen Dance Mathew Cameron

It was a huge run. She blew it at the start by not jumping with them, she flew late.

7th Natuzzi Doni Prastiyou

He just never settled. But in saying that, he still went a great race. He just got beaten by a few better than him.

8th Skyweka Cameron Lammas

It was a very good run. We didn't have much luck but the quick back up from last week probably took a bit out of her.

9th Rising Shot Michael Coleman

We got caught wide and she raced a bit keen.

10th He's Cavalier Trudy Thornton

He tried really hard but at this level he really wants at least a Dead 6 track.

11th Tessastock Samantha Collett

It was a nice run from a mare that probably wants a bit more ground.

12th Endean Rose Danielle Johnson

She come off the bit a long way out. The mile is probably a bit sharp for her.
