After each race, we spoke to jockeys of beaten favourites to hear their thoughts.
Race 1: WHITE CLIFFS TIMBER 1200
Spindle Cameron Lammas
Race 2: ROYAL DESCENT STAKES
Podravina Johnathan Parkes
Good run. I thought she stuck on pretty well.
Race 3: STELLA ARTOIS 1600
Bethany Matt Cameron
She wasn't suited with the track conditions at all. Better suited on a better track.
Race 4: PGG WRIGHTSON /VETMED 1400
Jip Jip Rock Michael McNab
If she drew a better gate she would have probably won.
Race 5: FASTTRACK INSURANCE 1600
Tightlign Matt Cameron
The track tripped him up. I haven't knocked him around so next time he'll be fine.
Race 6: LASER TE PUKE 1200
Pretty To Sea Leith Innes
Race 7: SISTEMA STAKES
Yourdeel Opie Bosson
Race 8: BONECRUSHER NEW ZEALAND STAKES
Melody Belle Opie Bosson
Race 9: BARFOOT & THOMPSON AUCKLAND CUP
Charles Road Craig Grylls
A touch disappointing. He traveled pretty good but we were down in the worst of it and couldn't get out. Turning in he was traveling good, saved some ground but when I let his head go, he was struggling.
Race 10: BARFOOT & THOMPSON 2100
Lord Arthur Jonathan Riddell
Good run but I couldn't get out. Promising three-year-old.
