Here are comments from the jockeys in the Wallen Concreting Avondale Cup.
1st - Robusto - Samantha Collett - Super tough run from her. Got herself in a good spot. She was able to tough it out in quite tight quarters. Good gutsy run.
2nd - Sound - Troy Harris - Good run. That will improve his fitness .
3rd - Star Tsar - Craig Grylls - Ended up getting a lovely run from a wide draw, travelled into it really nicely. A little bit one paced, still think there's a little bit of improvement in him.
4th - Platinum Invador - Ryan Eliot - Got a nice run, worked off the fence a couple of times but got pushed back down. Got off at the 600, had one run across in front of me but hit the line well.
5th - Hurry Cane - Sarah McNab - He's gone huge. Absolutely massive run.
6th - Ocean Billy - Callum Jones - He's gone a really good race. That'll top him off nicely for the Auckland Cup.
7th - Justamaiz - Jasmine Fawcett - It was a very good lead up run into the Auckland Cup. He'll be more competitive over the 2 miles.
8th - Vedo Rosso - Lynsey Satherley - He went super, just hit a bit of a flat spot turning for home but still ran home strongly.
9th - Lincoln King - Danielle Johnson - It was the run we were looking for leading into the Cup. Got shuffled a fair way back when they eased up but he sprinted hard when I asked him too
10th - Daytona Red - Darren Danis - He didn't get the best run but he hit the line
11th - In A Twinkling - Opie Bosson - A touch disappointing today, never really got himself into the race.
12th - Swords Drawn - Wiremu Pinn - He's gone a really good race. Got caught on the fence and got shuffled back but he made ground well.
13th - Fiscal Fantasy - Leith Innes - She's had a couple of hard runs, she probably needs to go for a little break.
14th - Te Akau Caliburn - Ashvin Goindasamy - A little bit keen in the early stages, once I got out just battled.
15th - Patsys Lass - Trudy Thornton - Had her chance, she was a little disappointing to be honest.
16th - Sergeant Blast - Lisa Allpress - He just pulled too hard, he's just not settling
17th - Nasha Riva - Sam Spratt - Not her day today.
Last - Roger That - Vinnie Colgan - Pretty average.
