After each race, we spoke to jockeys of beaten favourites to hear their thoughts.
Race One: AUCKLAND CO-OP TAXIS 1400
TWO ILLICIT Donavan Mansour Won
Race Two: STELLA ARTOIS 880
BONITA AURELIA Matt Cameron
Wasn't a bad run. A bit tricky from the outside gate and the inside ones jumped just as well and we knew that could be the case but she's just got tired at the end.
Race Three: OTAKIRI RESERVE 2400
HUNUA HANK Samantha Collett
Race Four: BARFOOT & THOMPSON 2100
YATIMA Craig Grylls
First run over ground. Relaxed nicely, moved into it as though she was going to win but might have just peaked in her first run over ground.
Race Five: OMF 1400
JIP JIP ROCK Andrew Calder
Had to do a little bit of work from an awkward gate. She travelled nicely and will improve with the run.
Race Six: STELLA ARTOIS/FASTTRACK $5K 1400
SUPERA Michael Coleman
Good run. Weight got her in the end.
