JOAO MOREIRA (Heartbreak City, 2nd): “Fantastic run, but we just didn’t win the race. He had a beautiful run and turning for home I thought he was going to win as I went past Hartnell easily, but then I saw Kerrin McEvoy and his horse was full of himself.”

HUGH BOWMAN (Who Shot Thebarman, 5th): “I was delighted with my horse. With a better draw he may have travelled a bit closer and finished a bit closer, but no excuses. He had a beautiful run.”
