After each race, we spoke to jockeys of beaten favourites to hear their thoughts.
Race One: MARKS EWEN 1400
Santa Catarina Jonathan Riddell
Race Two: BARFOOT & THOMPSON 2200
Savapak Craig Grylls
Race Three: MADISON QUALITEX 1200
Marzemino ANdrew Calder
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.
