1st: WELLINGTON – Ryan Moore

“He’s a very good horse. I was very pleased to get the ride. It more or less went to plan. I was able to get a bit of cover in midfield and the pace was steady. I got there a bit too early to be honest but he’s an intelligent horse and a pleasure to ride.”

2nd: SIGHT SUCCESS – Christophe Lemaire

“He travelled sweetly in the lead and held on well. He ran a great race.”

3rd: SKY FIELD – Blake Shinn

“He was huge. We followed the winner, couldn’t quite match him but he ran his heart out. It was an excellent performance.”

4th: COURIER WONDER– Luke Currie

“He ran great.”

5th: MEIKEI YELL – James McDonald

“She ran really great.”

6th: LUCKY SWEYNESSE – Zac Purton

“Wrong gate. I said to Manfred (Man) after the draw, we’re going to get stuck on the fence from there and not get out.”

7th: CORDYCEPS SIX – Silvestre De Sousa

“He ran a good race and the gate didn’t help but he finished well.”

8th: SUPER WEALTHY – Vincent Ho

“He ran well. I got blocked a little bit by Courier Wonder but it was the best I could do.”

9th: STRONGER – Hugh Bowman

“He jumped well and travelled well in a good position. He had every chance.”

10th: NARAN HULEG – Kyosuke Maruta

“He jumped well and traveled with good rhythm until the mid stage of the race but he was struggling to show his late kick.”

11th: DUKE WAI – Harry Bentley

“He was a little bit disappointing. We were always going to be out the back from a bad draw. He didn’t travel quite as well as normal but he finished his race good nonetheless.”

12th: GENDARME – Damian Lane

“He didn’t step well and then found himself in a very awkward spot and couldn’t unleash his sprint.”

13th: RESISTENCIA – Joao Moreira

“She wasn’t able to produce her best against horses in their home turf.”

14th: LIM’S KOSCIUSZKO – Danny Beasley

“Had every chance. I guess we found the Singapore from just wasn’t good enough.”
