After each race, we spoke to jockeys of beaten favourites to hear their thoughts.
Race 1: Stella Artois 2100
Donizetti Rosie Myers
It was her first run over ground and I fell she is just better suited to the 1600m trips.
Race 2: Mainstream Plumbing & Gasfitting 1400
Swisswatch Leith Innes
It was a good run from the 3yo against the older horses, he just got a little lost in the straight.
Race 3: Barneswood Farm Eclipse Stakes
Melt Michael McNab
Race 4: Stella Artois Royal Stakes
Contessa Vanessa Chris Johnson
She got a nice run in the race, she looked the winner at the furlong but the winner was just better on the day.
Race 5: Jamieson Park Auckland Guineas
Demonetization Jason Waddell
Race 6: Dunstan Feeds Stayers Championship Final
Keep Up Samantha Collett
It was a fair run on that kind of track.
Race 7: Laser Plumbing Te Puke Avondale Cup
Five To Midnight Leith Innes
It was a good effort, the ones that beat us were just better off at the weights.
Race 8: Rich Hill Mile
Charles Road Michael McNab
He ran good, he lets himself down a bit with the way he runs around.
Race 9: Sistema Railway
Volpe Veloce Jake Bayliss
Race 10: Barfoot & Thompson 1600
Eagle Bay Rosie Myers
