After each race, we spoke to jockeys of beaten favourites to hear their thoughts.
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
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
Race Eight: BENTLEYS CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS 1600
Ata Rangi Trudy Thornton
Wasn't a very good ride. Allow another chance.
