1st – BEAT THE CLOCK – Joao Moreira

“When the gates opened he was not where I wanted him to be but I knew I was coming to win a furlong out. This was really memorable for me as some people were doubting how good he was but he showed them today and in fact I think there may be some more to come.”

2nd – HOT KING PRAWN – Karis Teetan

“He ran very good, he did everything right I just thought a better horse beat us.” 

3rd – AETHERO – Zac Purton

“Good run.” 

4th – MR STUNNING – Hugh Bowman

“He ran a really good race, I thought it was a much-improved effort from his first-up run and he’ll improve again for that. I was pleased with him.”

5th – FULL OF BEAUTY – Vincent Ho

“He ran okay.”

6th – WISHFUL THINKER – Christophe Soumillon

“He ran really well, he’d be better over further distance.”

7th – D B PIN – Ryan Moore

“He jumped awkwardly and was too far back.”

9th – SEASONS BLOOM – Grant van Niekerk

“I did the best I could, bad gate.”

10th – RATTAN – Chad Schofield

“I had a good run but he’s probably just struggling to find his last-season form.”

11th – IVICTORY – Alberto Sanna

“He had nothing.”

12th – REGENCY LEGEND – Silvestre de Sousa

“He ran a good race for a long way but I just felt from that draw he wasn’t quite good enough.”
