Jockey Comments | Cambridge Stud Almanzor Trophy

Here are comments from the jockeys in the Cambridge Stud Almanzor Trophy that was run here at Ellerslie as part of the New Zealand Bloodstock Karaka Million.


1st - Need I Say More - Troy Harris - He got away well then crowded a little bit.He got a nice run into it around the corner then he let go good with the big weight.


2nd - Explosively - Leith Innes - Super run. He's still a bit green.


3rd - Babylon Berlin - Michael McNab - She went really good. Just a little bit flat the last bit.


4th - Ever So Easy - Craig Grylls - Got back on the fence but came through them nicely like he was going to go on with it. Maybe looking for 1400m now but a really good run.


5th - Maria Farina - Sam Weatherley - She may have a problem. She got to them pretty quick and then pulled up pretty quickly. Wouldn't surprise me if something has gone wrong.


6th - Helsinki - Danielle Johnson - She travelled up well but just failed to fire in the straight. She'll go out for a well deserved break now.


7th - So Gorgeous - Sam Spratt - Nice run after finding the speed a bit quick early on but ran on nicely.


8th - Cadeau - Sam Collett - Had a nice run outside the leader but just failed to fire.


9th - Najah - Chris Johnson - Got caught wide and handy and effort told in the end.


10th - Autobahn - Wiremu Pinn - She's gone a really nice race. She's just not up to that class at the moment.


Last - Miracles Happen - Trudy Thornton - He'll come into his own in the Autumn.
