Jockey Comments | Valachi Downs Royal Stakes

Here are comments from the jockeys in the Valachi Downs Royal Stakes.

1st - Self Obsession - Michael McNab

Really good staying effort. Puts herself on speed and is willing to fight. Top performance.

2nd - Princess Lowry - Shaun McKay

Tough run after backing up last week. Got flushed wide the whole way but it was a top effort to just lose the bob.

3rd - Aquacade - Leith Innes

Brave effort. She's just feeling the track a little bit.

4th - Verona - Ashvin Goindasamy

Very good run but blew out the last 100 metres.

5th - Mustang Valley - Lisa Allpress

Really nice run from a pretty terrible draw. Got back but made ground well.

6th - Social Distance - Sam Weatherley

Super run. She's still six months to a year away from her best but a really encouraging run.

7th - The High Priestess - Joe Kamaruddin

Jumped well and got in a nice position and finished on well.

8th - Trieste - Craig Grylls

Pulled quite hard during the race with a moderate tempo but didn't get home too bad.

9th - Miss Madison - Kozzie Asano

She hit the line but wants a faster tempo.

10th - Outfit - Opie Bosson

Got a fair way back but was probably feeling the ground a little bit.

11th - Just Dance - Danielle Johnson

She pulled when they went slow and then they sprinted. She'll be right with a bit more time.

12th - Sadler's Chick - Matthew Cameron

Wasn't a bad run. Obviously out of her grade but she'll a lot from it.

13th - Set In Stone - Tegan Newman

Big step up from her last start and she wanted to do everything wrong but she'll be right.

Last The Sprinkler - Masa Hashizume

Pulled too hard and had nothing in the home straight.
