Jockey Quotes - Adrian Knox Stakes

Aliferous snuck up the fence, and under punters guards, in taking out the $200,000 G3 TAB Adrian Knox Stakes (2000m) at Royal Randwick. The favourite Amangiri boxed on bravely to run second.

Here are what the beaten jockeys said post race, heading towards next week's Oaks.

Brenton Avdulla (Aliferous): “I was very surprised, obviously she was up in grade, but I suppose these fillies that can handle the ground, handle the trip, it’s half the battle.”

“She minded her own business out of the back there, I thought she was going to run a good fourth or fifth at the top of the straight, but they rolled along at a good speed and they hit a wall at the 150m and she was the fresh horse on the scene and was good enough to run over them.”

Aliferous powered to the line to win the Adrian Knox

Mark Zahra (Futooh): “Didn’t handle the going.”

James McDonald (Zalatte): “Effort was okay. Just a wide run.”

Opie Bosson (Clementina): “She struggled in the ground a little bit but still finished off okay.”

Stephen Baster (Maracaibo): No comment.

Tommy Berry (Amangiri): “She’s done a great job. I don’t think she saw the one back to the inside of her. It’s all come a bit too quick for her I think. She still wants to go a bit keen in her races but next prep she’s going to be a lovely filly.”

Dwayne Dunn (Lady Of Shalott): “Back in distance and back in class would suit.”

Karis Teetan (Welsh Legend): “It was a good run. She travelled nicely to the home straight and when I asked her she gave to me. Just one paced the last little bit.”

Jason Collett (Rocknavar): “Very good run. The draw probably just beat her.”

Kerrin McEvoy (Romani Girl): No comment.

Christian Reith (Mrs Madrid): “Really good run. The Oaks trip seems right up her alley and she will run well.”

Craig Williams (Pressure): “I thought she ran really well. Acquitted herself really well in that grade first time right handed.”

Sam Clipperton (Etheridge): “Little bit disappointed that she walked out of the gates like she did but I think that she is better than that.”

Corey Brown (Bye Bye Belle): “She actually ran really well. I was trying to edge Karis Teetan out from about the half mile to get a little bit better ground around the bend but when she got traction in the straight she worked home good.”

Damian Lane (Rock Dove): “Honest.”
