Jockey Comments: Valachi Downs Royal Stakes

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

Good run.

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
