Group 2 Eagle Technology Avondale Cup – Jockey Comments


Here are comments from the jockeys in the Group 2 Avondale Cup

1st – Asterix – Lynsey Satherley “Super training effort. Tough horse. Very lucky to be riding him.”

2nd – Dionysus – Masa Hashizume “Ran super. Got in a nice place from wide barrier. Travelled well but the last 100 metres he was waiting for other horses. Be spot on for Auckland Cup.”

3rd – Good Oil – Sam Spratt “Really tough effort. Travelled into it nicely, thought they were going to go past us but dug deep.”

4th – Khan Hunter – Darren Danis “Another honest run. He gave a good feel and finished well.”

5th – Nom De Plume – Matt Cameron “Super run. A little flat footed on the turn but with a little bit of rain and over further she’ll be right.”

6th – Trust In You – Kozzi Asano “Good run. Settled nicely. Probably prefers more distance.”


7th – Fierce Flight – Per-Anders Graberg – No comment.

8th – Nest Egg – Tegan Newman “Little disappointed. He got a track to his liking and settled handy but disappointed.”

9th – Mehzebeen – Michael McNab “Disappointing.”

10th – Coruba Jack – Ulrika Holmquist “They ran a bit quick for him today. Could be at the end of his prep.”

11th – Roccia – Warren Kennedy “She could be feels the effects of the two miles from last start. Very reluctant today. Didn’t do anything.”

12th – Mahrajaan – Lily Sutherland – No comment.

13th – Canheroc – Kelly Myers “He ran on nicely from the back.  The 3200 metres will suit.”

14th – Ess Vee Are – Courtney Barnes – No comment.

15th – Dark Destroyer – Sam Weatherley “Good run. Needs some moisture.”

16th – Prise De Fer – Vinnie Colgan “Wide gate and getting back doesn’t help.”

17th – Marty Louise – Ciel Butler “Didn’t handle the firmer ground today.”

Last – Ocean Billy – Tayla Mitchell “Jumped well but elected to go back, they just went too fast for him”
