After each race at the Vodafone Derby Day Races, we spoke to jockeys of beaten favourites to hear their thoughts.
Race One: CURRAGHMORE 1600
Star Tsar Matt Cameron
Dance Card Leith Innes
Got knocked over.
Race Three: VERTICAL LOGISTICS 1400
Packing Rockstar Jason Waddell
Race Four: GO RACING SYNDICATIONS 1200
Riding The Wave Jason Waddell
Awkwardly run race, very good horse with heaps of ability still learning.
Swords Drawn Sam Weatherley
Massive run. He's travelled well, when they quickened he was left flat footed. When he gets over a trip he'll be hard to beat.
Race Six: MCKEE FAMILY SUNLINE VASE
Bergamot Matt Cameron Good run. They went slow and had to make a move but found wanting the last bit.
Race Seven: MUFHASA FASTTRACK STAKES
Run To Perfection Jason Waddell
Very good effort. Has a few breathing issues. Very proud of him.
