After each race, we spoke to jockeys of beaten favourites to hear their thoughts.
Race 1: Bestaff 1600
Treasure Michael McNab
She got to them so easily and just floated a little. I think blinkers will help.
Race 2: NZB Insurance Pearl Series Race
Avantage Opie Bosson
It was a really good win, she still has plenty of improvement in her too! (Won)
Race 3: Bidfood 1200
Florence Jean Rosie Myers
She was just a bit slow away and we were forced to ride her back which is against her usual pattern but she really found the line nicely.
Race 4: 0800 Horsevets 1500
Ever Loyal Jason Waddell
We tried a couple of gear changes, the side winkers have helped but the change of bit definitely made him too fierce.
Race 5: Swiss Deli 1400
Princess Kereru Michael Coleman
It was a good game run, she probably just found the track a touch firm.
Race 6: Monstavision - Fasttrack 5k
Joy Ana Mark Du Plessis
I think she is just feeling the effects of recent racing.
Race 7: Collinson Forex Karaka Cup
Charles Road Jake Bayliss
Jumping from 1600m to 2200m with an ordinary barrier we had to use a little bit of petrol early. I would've loved a bit of cover, the leader rolled off the fence in the straight and let the 1st and 2nd horses through, my horse boxed on gamely to run 3rd beaten a long neck, he was entitled to win and I think he will next start.
Race 8: Coca-Cola 2100
Comin'through Leith Innes
It was a huge run, horses just don't do what he did today, he was really game.
