After each race, we spoke to jockeys of beaten favourites to hear their thoughts.
Race 1: DDB 1200
River Run Vinnie Colgan
Nice run by him. It was the first time running this way round. Should be winning next time.

Carli Rose Michael Coleman
Little disappointing. Didn't really travel that well most of the way and just ground away in the run home.

Nice run. Just beaten by the winner at the weights with the claim.

Travelled pretty good. Got held up a bit turning for home but finished strongly.
Race 8: Auckland Co-Op Taxis 2200
Starrybeel Michael McNab
I had a lovely run. Tried to sprint with them. He was only alright in the straight. Maybe right handed tripped him up.
