1st – Pakistan Star – William Buick
“Tony went through his previous races with me, and he’s quite a famous horse for his antics so I was aware of him and I was aware of what he can do. When I found out that I was riding him, I took on board all of the information I knew about the horse and also thought it was quite important to ride him with a fresh mind and just be very positive about the horse. He felt beautiful today and when he quickened up the straight he felt like a world class mile and a quarter horse.”

2nd – Gold Mount – Alberto Sanna
“He’s an unbelievable horse. He ran pretty good and I’m very happy with the race performance. 2000m is good for him, but he can be better over a further distance, so I hope I can ride him again and get a better result.”

3rd – Eagle Way – Brett Prebble
“He ran his own race. He’s really consistent. He’s looking for a longer journey now, he beat the same horse a head again today so they’re both holding their form.”

4th – Ping Hai Star – Joao Moreira
“He ran a beautiful race, obviously he pretty much sat out the back like he usually likes to, he finished off the race strongly but obviously the track hasn’t been playing in favour of the back-runners so he found it a bit hard to catch up.”

5th – Al Ain – Cristian Demuro
“We had a perfect race behind the leader, then when it was time to pass horses he showed his strong character, I think it’s time to put blinkers on him.”

6th – Dinozzo – Karis Teetan
“I had a perfect spot, he’s just not in that league.”

7th – Danburite – Tommy Berry
“He travelled well during the run, we just quickened up well from the half-mile mark because he doesn’t really have a turn of foot and he was still a bit one-paced the last furlong.”

8th – Time Warp – Zac Purton
“Tommy Berry got me beat at the half-mile.”
