After each race, we spoke to jockeys of beaten favourites to hear their thoughts.
Race One: THE BAKER'S SON 1600 Inscription Ashvin Goidasamy
Race Two: RACE IMAGES 1400
Campari Craig Grylls
Race Three: SHAMROCK GROUP 2200
Nordic Matthew Cameron
An ok run. He's worked into it nicely but needs a wetter track.
Race Four: WHITES REFRIGERATION 1600
Copper Fox Cameron Lammas
Big run from him. First time over a mile, he went good. He pricked his ears and did the rest on his own down the straight.
Race Five: PIAZZA D'ORO AUCKLAND FUTURITY STAKES
Avadane Cameron Lammas
Big run. Just got shuffled back a couple spots further back that I wanted and pushed out wider. She went good.
Race Six: TUAKAU COSSIE RACING SECTION 1200
Midnight Runner Opie Bosson
Race Seven: SCOTT ELECTRICAL 1200
Wild Seas Craig Grylls
Not a bad run. Had a good trip throughout the race. Didn't have much room turning for home but when it opened she ran flat. Probably looking for further.
Race Eight: BARFOOT & THOMPSON 1400
Super Gee Matt Cameron
A good run. Did a bit of work at the start but he's blown out but a good fresh up run.
