Here are comments from the jockeys in the Group 2 SkyCity Eclipse Stakes
1st – Bellatrix Star – Warren Kennedy
Really good run. Settled beautifully in the run today, quickened smartly all the way to the line. Good win.
2nd – Move To Strike – Opie Bosson
Had his chance. The winner was too good for him.
3rd – Velocious – Sam Spratt
Really good run. Just came to the end of it the last bit. She’s had a bit of a break in the paddock since her last run, so that will top her off nicely for the Karaka Millions.
4th – So Naive – Michael McNab
He’ll be a better three-year-old.
5th –Force of Law – Niranjan Palmer
He went a nice race.
6th – Lotus – Craig Grylls
Led up but still green. Once she’s older and stronger she’ll be a nice type but still green.
7th – Skymax – Bailey Rogerson
She travelled well but lacked a turn of foot when they sprinted on the corner. Opposition a little too rich for her.
Last – Montana Bay – Joe Doyle
He’s still pretty green. There’ll be another day for him.
