2nd Tyzone (Tommy Berry): Had a beautiful cart in behind the winner. He just wasn’t good enough to get past him in the end.
3rd Endless Drama (Leith Innes): It was a super run and he’s come a long way in a couple of months since he’s been back in New Zealand. He got there a little bit soon but it was a good effort.
4th Spright (Glen Boss): She got spat out at the start. He wouldn’t have beaten the winner but should have run second or third. It was huge.
5th Tom Melbourne (Michael Dee): It was a bit of a surprise to see him back there. He jumped really well and just stumbled shortly after. From then on, I didn’t want to give him a dig as he can get fired up. So, I had to make do with what I had. Other than that, it was a good run.
6th Viridine (Tim Clark): I thought he performed well. I thought he probably performed better this week than he did last week. He dropped in the weights and kept finding the line.
7th Widgee Turf (Billy Egan): Good run and honest enough but at this level he probably needs all the favours to win.
8th Dollar For Dollar (Jamie Kah): Better than his last start effort but I think he’s just not 100 per cent at the moment.
9th Irithea (Robbie Fradd): It was a good run from her. Probably held up a touch too long at the top of the straight. Needed the gap to come earlier but in saying that it was a top from her.
10th Encryption (Craig Williams): He’s off to stud now. He won a Group 2 in the Danehill Stakes and placed in a Group 1. Today if he didn’t get his momentum stopped in the straight, he would have finished two lengths closer.
11th The Bostonian (Michael Cahill): He lost his footing as the gates opened which pout him back out of that forward position, he normally he takes. He still raced well but he didn’t get a lot of room in the straight. He pretty much spoilt his chances at the start.
12th Pretty In Pink (Robbie Dolan): He never really got a lot of luck in running. He was on the rail and cruised into it pretty nice. But he was just running into dead ends.
13th Despatch (Barend Vorster): He was very unfortunate and not got a clear run. He sat there and watched the whole finish throughout the straight so he was pretty unfortunate.
14th Man Booker (Joe Bowditch): He had the outside barrier and got caught wide from the gate. Tough run took its toll.
16th Deploy (Brenton Avdulla): He had a perfect run and was disappointing.
17th Home Of The Brave (James McDonald): Just too keen.
