Christmas at the Races Raceday: Jockey comments from beaten favourites

After each race, we spoke to jockeys of beaten favourites to hear their thoughts.


Race One: WIRELESS RENTALS 1600

Rendition Sam Collett

Looked the winner 150m out but raced a bit greenly and threw it away to be fair.


Race Two: TDDA 2200

Swords Drawn Sam Weatherley

Raced pretty dour, 2400 metres would suit.


Race Three: DUNSTAN FEEDS STAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFIER 2200

Evana Rahma Sam Weatherley

Copped a bad check before the corner that knocked the stuffing out of her. She's only a little filly. Forgive the run.


Race Four: MITCHELL FAMILY BONECRUSHER STAKES

Riodini Sam Collett

Won


Race Five: BROOKBY STABLES 1200

Aero De Paris Craig Grylls

Settled well as he usually pulls hard but didn't finish it off today.


Race Six: PROTECTA INSURANCE 1200

Dawn Patrol Troy Harris

Had to go back from the draw but got stuck in a tricky spot. Made up a heap of ground. Super run


Race Seven: DUNSTAN FEEDS 1500 CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFIER 1500

Prise De Fer Shaun McKay

Won


Race Eight: JR WEBB & SON 2200

Star Karen Sam Collett

Little disappointing. The pace was genuine enough, travelled into it well but jest seemed to peak the last 200 metres.
