Eagle Technology Raceday: Jockey comments from beaten favourites

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


Race One: DUNSTAN FEEDS STAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFIER 2100

Spring Delight Craig Grylls

Very disappointing. Had a very good run in the trail, good run up the fence but didn't quicken at all. Maybe feeling the hard track.


Race Two: EXECUTIVE TRAVEL 1100

Bordeaux Le Rouge Troy Harris

Won (On protest)


Race Three: WITHERS & CO CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS 1100

Born Dragon Vinnie Colgan

Won


Race Four: DUNSTAN FEEDS 1500 CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFIER 1200

Super Strike Andrew Calder

Jumped away nicely but he got back further than I wanted to, just to get in. He was big in the straight. He's a smart horse.


Race Five: TREVOR EAGLE MEMORIAL 3YO

Dragon Leap Craig Grylls

Had a lovely trip. Felt like he was going to win quite easily but without warning he's just run out so he's cost himself.


Race Six: EAGLE TECHNOLOGY STAKES

Beauden Ryan Elliot

We took a sit to take the pressure off and he's battled on.


Race Seven: DUNSTAN FEEDS 1500 CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFIER 1400

Pierina Danielle Johnson

Won


Race Eight: BENTLEYS CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS 1600

Ata Rangi Trudy Thornton

Wasn't a very good ride. Allow another chance.
