OMF Melbourne Cup Day: Jockey comments from beaten favourites

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

Race 1: Chevalier Produce 1600

Thomas Aquinas Lisa Allpress

He ran a nice enough race. He's a three-year-old still a bit week, so he has time on his side but he's doing everything right and he's not far away from them.

Race 2: Carlton Events 1200

Princess Kereru Cameron Lammas

She went huge, she was a bit unlucky. Gaps didn't open up for her as I wanted but she tried hard.

Race 3: NZ Chinese Jockey Club 1200

Fullinbloom Opie Bosson


Race 4: Auckland Co-Op Taxis 2200

Zanyetta Michael Coleman

Ranged up to the winner at the 300m mark but didn't carry it on. Disappointing.

Race 5: John Deere Agrowquip 1600

Rhinestone Cowboy Jonathan Riddell


Race 6: OMF Stakes

Lizzie L'Amour Matthew Cameron

It was a good run, she just didn't find that turn of foot on a better track. She had to get past a few slow ones to get to where we were but hit the line well. Top run.

Race 7: Delta Insurance 1400

Save The Date Leith Innes

She went really well. She got held up a little on the inside but hit the line well.

Race 8: Carbine Club Trophy

Mongolian Marshal Matthew Cameron


Race 9: Ellerslie Jewellers & Engravers 1400

Rip Em Up Danielle Johnson

Super run from her today. I was back and trapped a bit wide but she hit the line really well. She will be a really nice Oaks filly.

Race 10: Simply Squeezed 1400

Prince Jabeel Leith Innes

Muddling run race but he hit the line really well.
