Jockey Comments | AJC Avondale Guineas

Here are comments from the jockeys in the AJC Avondale Guineas


1st - La Crique - Craig Grylls

Got into the trail early and relaxed and travelled well and showed a great turn of foot. She's a very good filly.


2nd - Arjay's Flight - Trudy Thornton

Big run.


3rd - Marchand - Leith Innes

Obviously the winner won well but he had the outside barrier and his run had a lot of merit.


4th - White Noise - Ryan Eliot

Beautiful spot in the running but they went too slow and sprinted but he's finished well after being off for six weeks.


5th - Field Of Gold - Michael McNab

Okay run without being great. When he started to improve he missed a couple of strides and wasn't able to get his action back. But he was still below par.


6th - The Perfect Pink - Opie Bosson

Got a nice soft run but just locked up halfway down the straight. Disappointing run.


7th - Regal Lion - Matt Cameron

Super run. He's still learning, bring on the Derby. He'll be a lot better for it.


8th - Tutukaka - Jonathan Riddell

Never tried.


9th - Nest Egg - Hazel Schofer

Had a rough run. Got back further than intended but he'll get the trip in the Derby.


10th - Yes We Khan - Masa Hasizume

Fair run.


11th - Shockatillatap - Shaun McKay

Checked at the start and raced erratically but was outclassed.


12th - Opaea Joe - Kozzi Asano

Didn't stay. Probably needs to go back to a mile.


Last - Te Toki - Vinnie Colgan

Had enough.
