We spoke to jockeys competing in the Valachi Downs Royal Stakes to get their comments on how the race went.
1st: Two Illicit Vinnie Colgan
Just too good. Got a nice run in the race, I got three wide behind Sam at the half mile. Got to the front a bit soon but strong through the line.
2nd: Bergamot Michael McNab
Super run. Switched off really good. Oaks will be ideal for her.
3rd: Lilikoi James McDonald
4th: Coco Baci Matt Cameron
Top tun. A filly on the way up and will be better next time.
5th: Darcee Que Michael Coleman
Good run. She found the line all right.
6th: Kaipaki Road Leith Innes
Good run. She just got back on a slow speed but she's one to watch.
7th: Celestial Nymph Craig Grylls
Nice run. Copped a bit of a check before the turn but battled away alright.
8th: Nothing Campares Cameron Lammas
She went very good, just got held up at the 600m mark but she's run on good.
9th: Diamonds Galore Jonathan Riddell
Nice filly. She's probably a little weak but has a future.
10th: Rendition Opie Bosson
Got a few knocks across the top but battled on alright.
11th: Aalaalune Ryan Elliot
Settled back, did everything nice. Too much to do.
12th: Showdeel Danielle Johnson
Never traveled throughout and was weak in the straight.
13th: Greyvee Mick Dee
Traveled nicely in the run but never let down.
Last: Annie's Song Sam Collett
