1st: GOLDEN SIXTY – Vincent Ho
“He’s a monster. When I asked him for an effort, he lengthened like I can’t believe – he’s still got that turn of foot. It’s crazy. It’s amazing. Perfectly, I got the three-wide cover where I wanted to be and he knows his racing now. He never travelled keen with me, he was relaxed all of the way and then when I asked him for an effort, he just gave me 100 percent.”

2nd: VOYAGE BUBBLE – James McDonald
“That was unbelievable. It was a super performance. I’m so proud of him and Ricky Yiu has done an amazing job, he’s in for a great season.”

3rd: NAMUR – William Buick
“She ran great. She was drawn 12 which wasn’t ideal but I did the thing I had to do and she’s got a good turn of foot which she showed today. We covered a bit of ground but I think everyone will be happy with that. She bumped into a superstar.”

4th: SOUL RUSH – Joao Moreira
“He didn’t have the best run in the race but he hit the line like a really good horse and I’m very happy with the result.”

5th: BEAUTY JOY – Maxime Guyon
“I’m last in the race, the passage was good for him, he didn’t pull and he had a good turn of foot.”

6th: BEAUTY ETERNAL – Zac Purton
“I was hampered by Lim’s Kosciuszko.”

7th: SERIFOS – Trainer Mitsumasa Nakauchida
The horse gave his best. Because of the surface at Sha Tin, he couldn’t get close to the front horses.

8th: ENCOUNTERED – Derek Leung
“He went good but the pace was just a bit too slow for him.”

9th: LIM’S KOSCIUSZKO – Damian Lane
“He ran well.”

10th: CAIRO – Ryan Moore
“He ran fantastic.”

11th: DIVINA – Cristian Demuro
“The Group 1 was too hard – too tough – for her.”

12th: DANON THE KID – Yuichi Kitamura
“He was relaxed but the ground didn’t suit him. He didn’t have a turn of foot.”

13th: CALIFORNIA SPANGLE – Christophe Soumillon
“He jumped out well but unfortunately the pace was going too fast and I couldn’t make it. It wasn’t his day.”

14th: TRIBALIST – Mickael Barzalona
“He did a bit too much and it wasn’t suitable for the horses today to go in front.”
