Manco Easter Handicap Raceday: Jockey comments from beaten favourites


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

Race One: MARKS EWEN 1400

Santa Catarina Jonathan Riddell

Won

Race Two: BARFOOT & THOMPSON 2200

Savapak Craig Grylls

Won

Race Three: MADISON QUALITEX 1200

Marzemino ANdrew Calder

Won

Race Four: BUFFALO & CO CHAMPAGNE STAKES

Glinda Goodwitch Sam Collett

Unsuited by the slow tempo. Probably better as a three-year-old.

Race Five: VRC TROPHY 1600

Vichy Ryan Elliot

Jumped well, we got into a nice position.. Thought we had a chance, better horse beat us today.

Race Six: VALACHI DOWNS CHAMPIONSHIP STAKES

Spring Delight Craig Grylls

Had a good run throughout and tracked into it nice but didn't run on. Probably at the end of her prep.

Race Seven: MANCO EASTER HANDICAP

The Mitigator Shaun McKay

A very good run considering he got taken on in front and that cost him finishing couple lengths closer at the finish. A good run.

Race Eight: FAREWELL & GOOD LUCK TIMMY G 1600

Anything But Jake Bayliss

They went pretty quick, found a good spot but never traveled at all. Was under the stick before we straightened up but his last 600m was very promising. Maybe the earmuffs have to come off to help him focus.
