Vodafone Derby Day: Darley Stallions Plate jockey comments

We spoke to jockeys competing in the Darley Stallions Plate on Vodafone Derby Day to get their comments on how the race went.

1st Julius Jason Waddell

He was just too big and too strong once again.

2nd Heroic Valour Michael McNab

He ran great. Just beaten by a better horse.

3rd Sultan Of Swing Sam Weatherley (a)

It was huge. I thought he was the winner 150m out but the other two just kept kicking and held him off. Up to 1400m next start he will be better suited. He has a group win in him.

4th Passing Shot Samantha Collett

It was a good honest run again. He was just left a sitting duck and was just collared late.

5th Romancer Mark Du Plessis

He ran good. Just under pressure I think he felt the track a touch.

6th Volks Lightning Chris Johnson

She sat midfield and came with a run but just battled.

7th Sacred Star Vinnie Colgan

Time for retirement I think.

8th Rich Billie Marsh Jasmine Fawcett (a)

The track was just too firm for her today.

9th Magnum Michael Coleman

We were outpaced early but he hit the line okay.

Last Fully Funded Sam Spratt

He went okay. A bit disappointing though.
