Jockey Comments | Wallen Concreting Avondale Cup

Here are comments from the jockeys in the Wallen Concreting Avondale Cup

1st - Hinepara - Ashvin Goindasamy

Jumped well and settled well and finished strongly. The weight made the difference over the runner-up.

2nd - Concert Hall - Ryan Elliot

Lovely spot in the run. Just weight got to her in the end. She'll be spot on for the Cup.

3rd - Mohaka - Kate Hercock

Very unlucky run. Missed the start but travelled up huge going down the back. Unlucky we didn't get to the front when we needed to.

4th - He No Opilio - Ashvin Mudhoo

Got a nice lead and relaxed good and he ran home well.

5th - Hit The Road Jack - Bridget Grylls

Had to settle last from his gate but he ran on really well. Looking forward to the Cup.

6th - Enright - Trudy Thornton

He tried hard. He's come through the grades quite quick. He's going to get better with time.

7th - Roger That - Lynsey Satherley

Good run. He hasn't had a run for a while so he'll improve. Good run going forward.

8th - Te Akau Caliburn - Kozzi Asano

Missed the start and cost himself but it was a very good run.

9th - Ember Attack - Joe Kamaruddin

Jumped well and settled behind the leader with muddling pace. Unlucky on the corner not to get out. Good run.

10th - Beam Me Up Scotty - Darrin Danis

No comment.

11th - Our Hail Mary - Matt Cameron

Disappointing run. Hit a flat spot a long way out and really battled down the straight. Got going after going past the post but race was over by then.

12th - The Bounder - Leah Hemi

Posted three wide with cover. Just didn't have that turn of foot coming home but hoping he'll improve with the run.

13th - Iffraajinator - Masa Hashizume

Last - Iskander - Yuto Kumagai
