1st: LUCKY SWEYNESSE – Zac Purton
“I had the run inside Victor The Winner but when James went for him, he shifted in and hampered me a little bit but he accelerated so quickly, I was able to come out across his heels and he had his chance from there – he did what he had to do. I love him.”

2nd: LUCKY WITH YOU – Andrea Atzeni
“He ran a blinder. He’s a very straightforward horse. We had a good draw, which helped, and we followed Lucky Sweynesse, who was the one to beat. He finished off quite nicely and he was beaten by a champion.”

3rd: WELLINGTON – Alexis Badel
“It was a good effort from him. I was happy with the run. With the blinkers on, I was trying to save his energy for the last dash. I thought I came to win and he hit the line strong but not strong enough.”

4th: VICTOR THE WINNER – James McDonald
“He ran really well. It was a shame about the pacemaker.”

5th: DUKE WAI – Karis Teetan
“He ran great considering the draw. If he’d have had a better draw I think he’d have run even closer but I was very happy with his run.”

“She ran solid. I think five furlongs in a straight line is more her gig these days.”

7th: JASPER KRONE – Yuga Kawada
“He tried his best. He showed his run.”

8th: MAD COOL – Cristian Demuro
“The ground was too hard. He had a good run behind the leaders but didn’t finish off on that ground.”

9th: SIGHT SUCCESS – Brenton Avdulla
“He didn’t jump quickly and our race was over.”

10th: AESOP’S FABLES – Ryan Moore
“No comment.”
