Here are comments from the jockeys in the AJC Avondale Guineas.
1st - Rocket Spade - Craig Grylls - A bit awkward out of the gates and settled a bit further back than I liked. He was probably a little bit fresh today, he was real hard work in the running. Got the splits and tried hard. He was coming to the end of it the last bit so there's still a bit of improvement in him.
2nd - Jason Belltree - Vinnie Colgan - A good uninterrupted run. I had him in a good spot and then the pace came off and the loose horse got us all charging so it changed the whole race. Top run.
3rd - On Display - Samantha Collett - Another brave run from this horse. He's knocking on the door and he deserves to get a big one.
4th - Lord Ardmore - Sam Spratt - Really happy with the run. He hasn't run for a little while so that will clean him up nicely.
5th - Milford - Leith Innes - He Was super. Wait until he gets the blinkers on
6th - Il Affare - Jonathan Parkes - Another nice run. Got a bit rocky with the riderless horse but still another good run.
7th - Tribute King - Danielle Johnson - He just battled away to the line. Took a little bit of ground off them. Didn't sprint as well as the winner, maybe a bit more cut in the ground.
8th - Edge Of Wonder - Ryan Eliot - Flew the gates and trailled the leader. Just didn't show much in the straight
9th - Grip - Andrew Calder - It was a fair run. He's a beautiful horse and his day will come.
10th - Ember Attack - Shaun McKay - The week back up probably just didn't suit him.
11th - Zoltan - Lisa Allpress - Not his day
Lost Rider - Ulaanbaatar - Sam Weatherley - No comment
