This is what the jockeys thought of their rides during the day.

1st

LEGISLATION

Damian Browne

He's a lovely colt. Peter and Paul have a good opinion of the horse. They knew whatever he did today he would improve on and certainly raced like that.

2nd

FIESTA

Brenton Avdulla

She ran terrific. When we jump we all jump in a clump and we ended up in a bit of a squeeze box but I got to the outside and her last furlong was good.

3rd

GODODDIN

Jason Collett

We were away fairly and we were a bit green in the mid stages there but she found the line nicely.

4th

ALSHAHHAD

Jay Ford

He's a lovely horse. He's probably a little bit keen in the lead and in that ground when he came off the bridle he really sunk and struggled.

5th

CATANZARO

Adam Hyeronimus

He went well for his first run. He's still learning so I was happy with the run.

6th

GORGONS

Glyn Schofield

She raced ok, back with a bit of cover, just got a bit lost when I aksed her to quicken up.

7th

CYCLONITE

Christian Reith

It was probably just a bit soon for him. Probably looking for 1200m.

8th

TACTICAL FORMATION

Tye Angland

He went alright. He did everything right early but I think he's just going to take a little bit of time to mature.

9th

LINE UP GIRLS

Joshua Parr

Performed well below expectations. Back to the drawing board for him.

Race 2 – 2CH 3YO BENCHMARK 75 HANDICAP (1600m)

KAONIC (NZ)

Glyn Schofield

It was a soft win. He quickens up when you need him to. He's raw still. He'll go to better races than this but I'd like see him take the next step to a classier race than today. Chris is taking him gradually through the grades which is nice to see.

2nd

LUVALUVA (NZ)

Jay Ford

She went super. She closed off really well. Just had to wait for the breaks to come and the winner had got the jump on us.

3rd

SAMBRO

Lee Magorrian (a3)

Next season he'll be a better horse.

4th

SKY BOY

Josh Adams

I was held up for a little bit at the top of the straight but he's run well. He'll do well over further.

5th

OUR MANTRA

Joshua Parr

It was less than ideal to sit three wide outside the speed and he tired late.

6th

REGENT

Jason Collett

Relaxed in the run, the split came but just wasn't able to pick them up.

7th

CHARLIE CHAP

Adam Hyeronimus

Good run, probably just can't run out a strong mile.

8th

THE MIGHTY FED

Andrew Adkins (a1.5)

Disappointing. Got back and did not work but didn't find the line.

9th

THY KINGDOM COME

Tye Angland

Very disappointing.

10th

Disappointing.

SHE KNOWS

Jay Ford

She was good. Travelled outside the leader and kicked. She was having a look around late but was never in doubt.

2nd

I AM CAPITAN

Glyn Schofield

Good effort. I think we got close because the winner was having a good look. It gave us a sniff and my bloke tried to fight but just wasn't up to getting that last half-length back.

3rd

ATTAINMENT

Rachel Hunt (a3)

Really solid effort.

4th

HIGHWAY SIXTYSIX

Andrew Adkins (a1.5)

A very nice horse. Still very green and very raw. I think 1400m is going to be ideal. Really attacked the line like a nice horse.

5th

UNDAOAF

Lee Magorrian (a3)

He ran a great race unfortunately I just had no luck again on him.

6th

KASHTAN

Rachel King (a1.5)

Not too bad a run but probably appreciates a better track.

7th

POLSKIE LADY

Adam Hyeronimus

No comment.

8th

MALACHI CRUNCH

Brock Ryan (a3)

They just ran along a bit too quick for him and he couldn't pick them up on the wet track.

9th

LARLABROOK

Blaike McDougall (a3)

A little disappointing.

DESTINY'S KISS

Jay Ford

He's a tough old horse and he took a bit to get going but he just kept giving.

2nd

ALWARD (IRE)

Brenton Avdulla

He ran terrific. First try at the trip obviously this prep. He quickened a bit better than I thought he would in ground but got run down by a long neck.

3rd

ADMIRAL JELLO

Glyn Schofield

Genuine stayer that just didn't have enough turn of speed to reel them in but honest enough again.

4th

SOCIAL ELEMENT (NZ)

Rachel King (a0)

It was a good run stepping up in grade.

5th

MORE THAN AHOLIDAY

Outclassed.

IMPROVEMENT (NZ)

Lee Magorrian (a3)

She went great. Gary told me to get the lead early and that's what I did and she too tough in the finish.

2nd

COLLATERAL

Tye Angland

The big fella went super. He spot on where the stable was at, it's a credit to them.

3rd

KING DARCI (NZ)

Adam Hyeronimus

Very good run.

4th

DAGNY (NZ)

Glyn Schofield

She had her chance. Perfectly positioned but couldn't find a finish.

5th

LOVE'S A FANTASY

James Innes Jnr (a2)

She was honest, it was just the way the race was run.

6th

SHAZEE LEE

Josh Adams

I just got a little bit blocked for a run but when the speed quickened at the 600m it had her off the bit and it probably didn't play into her hands.

7th

PEACOCK

Joshua Parr

Awful performance.

GOODFELLA

Jason Collett

Another good win. He settled in behind them today and actually over-raced in the middle stages. I didn't want to go down to the fence. He was flushed out on the bend which meant I had to get going. As we're finding if you aren't aggressive on him, he'll have a lend. I don't think we've seen the bottom of him yet.

2nd

PIRACY

Andrew Adkins (a0)

Very good run. Settled well when I asked and travelled very well around the turn. There was a bit of pressure from the outside and that told in the latter stages. Still ran well and will improve from that.

3rd

ANDAZ

Damian Browne

Terrific run, travelled well and hit the line really well.

4th

MALAHAT

Glyn Schofield

He was comfortable in the lead but just dug into the ground a little too much for him.

5th

ALBUMIN

Joshua Parr

He failed to let down on the soft ground.

6th

First race start and it wasn't a bad effort.

She's airborne, she's such an easy ride. Fantastic effort again.

2nd

ZESTFUL

Tye Angland

Really good run. All credit to the winner, she just had a better turn of foot.

3rd

KINSHACHI

Glyn Schofield

Presented well over the rise but just couldn't finish the race off.

4th

DIXIE BLOSSOMS

Christian Reith

Super run dropping back in trip today.

5th

DAYSEE DOOM

Andrew Adkins (a0)

She was strong at the end of the six furlongs and she'll be spot on the for the mile in Melbourne.

6th

HEAVENS ABOVE

Adam Hyeronimus

No comment.

7th

SAMANTHA

Josh Adams

The pace of the race probably didn't help her. She was a bit ungenerous in the middle stages and found it hard to hit the line after that.

8th

SIREN'S FURY

Jess Taylor

Good first-up run, she was hitting the line strongly. Just got held up a little at the 150m. She'll be better next start.

9th

MATERNAL

Brenton Avdulla

She was ok. Travelled comfortable but got tired late.

10th

SPRIGHT

Jay Ford

Disappointing again. She might not have come up.

11th

NANCY

Damian Browne

Travelled lovely throughout but hit a flat spot turning for home and was unable to quicken out of that.

12th

DIDDUMS

James Innes Jnr (a0)

I thought she had her chance out in front. Even though she's won a Group race on a heavy track I don't think it's her best surface.

MORTAR PLATOON (IRE)

Lee Magorrian (a3)

It's been a good day and the horse just did everything right. He travelled sweet in running and presented in the straight and kicked well. The more luck and success I get the more opportunities appear.

2nd

IMPAVIDO

Jason Collett

Worked home well, the leader just kept kicking

3rd

HOGMANAY

Tye Angland

I got him to begin a bit better and I thought his run was full of merit.

4th

SCREAMARR

Josh Adams

Ran well juust got a bit stuck in the ground late.

5th

MAPMAKER

Adam Hyeronimus

Ran well, probably just needs that cover.

Travelled nice and strong but just tired late.

7th

WU GOK

Very dour.

8th

Really good effort first-up, just needs to come on fitness wise.

Didn't do much.

Never got into the race.

MY COUNTRY

Andrew Adkins (a1.5)

It was a strong win. We bounced with them, when I showed that amount of speed I was only going to be caught wide and she was really fresh today but once I got her back in behind a runner she really switched off and when I asked her before the turn to improve she really did. She let down like a Snowden horse does.

2nd

CRAFTY COP

Brenton Avdulla

He tried hard and ran honest.

3rd

NEW UNIVERSE (NZ)

Jason Collett

Got quite wound up before the start, changing the saddle. Pass mark - just. Maybe the testing track told late.

4th

PETROSSIAN

Rachael Murray

Really good solid effort.

5th

ZIGGY WILLIE

Damian Browne

Tried hard.

6th

SWEET SERENDIPITY

Rachel King (a1.5)

Really good run, that will just bring him on fitness wise.

7th

UNEQUIVOCAL

Christian Reith

I thought the last part of the race was really good.

8th

NOBLE JOEY

Brock Ryan (a3)

I took the sit early and he just lost the bit and didn't know what he was doing. In hindsight I'd probably lead and send him a long.

9th

ASTARA (NZ)

Glyn Schofield

Couldn't quite get in from the wider draw.
