We spoke to jockeys competing in the CLC Pakarunga Hunt Cup to get their comments on how the race went.
1st" Lacustre Shaun Phelan
Good staying effort. Looking forward to the Northern.
2nd: The Arabian Duke Gary Walsh
Huge run. Good lead into the Northern.
3rd: Kokanee Gold Matthew Cropp
Super run. Only broke maidens last week. He'll improve a lot from that.
4th: Max Isaac Lupton
Just a fair run. Had a good run in the race but only battled under the weight.
5th: Raisafuasho Shaun Fannin
Just needed a look round. Jumped and landed into the water jump second fence knocked his confidence. Blew up the last bit
6th: Old Countess Buddy Lammas
She ran nice. First time over the hill. Had a good look round for the Northern.
7th: Perry Mason Aaron Kuru
Last: Wise Men Say Reece Cole
Wants another round.

Baulked at the fence and punched me out of the saddle.
LR: Kings Kite Micahel Roustoby
Blame the jockey for that. Poor ride.
PU: Caballo Noir Toni Moki

Went really well. Great jumper. Only his second runt his prep, I think he'll improve with the run.
