Jockey Comments | CLC Pakuranga Hunt Cup

1st Magic Wonder - Barry Donoghue - What a mare. She is just awesome. The instructions were to ride her positive but I missed the kick and got back further than planned. She picked her way through the field and honestly it was just a sit and steer job. It was all her.

2nd Southern Cool - Matthew Cropp - Super run and fights hard like his mother Joint Effort.

3rd Napoleon - Dean Parker - Hit a flat spot in the back straight but ran on really well.

4th Grinner - Emily Farr - He was amazing in his first steeplechase. If he hadn't hit the Kenny Browne , he would have finished 2nd or 3rd. Look out in the Northern.

5th Shamal - Buddy Lammas - Good run back from Aussie. He had a good blow so he will improve immensely.

6th Des De Jeu - James Seivwright - One mistake on the hill but had a good blow afterwards.

7th Delacroix - Shaun Phelan - Outpaced on the firm ground but tried hard.

8th Zamora - Nick Downs - Just ran out of puff after challenging down the hill.

Might ride him a bit differently if he goes to the Northern.

9th The Arabian Duke - Michael Roustoby - Jumped super but needs rain.

10th Wise Men Say - Isaac Lupton - Just a fair run.

11th Zedman - Hamish McNeill - Needed the run.

PU Old Countess - Gary Walsh - No Comment

PU That's How It Goes - Stephen Karnicnik Wants some rain.
