Find out what the jockeys made of their mounts after the Group 2 Hyland Race Colours Ajax Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens.
James McDonald (Imaging): “That’s what he was supposed to do first up, but things went wrong, but it just shows when a horse does get into a bit of a tussle how much it takes it out of them.
“Look he dropped out there, but he wasn’t dropping out today.
“Full steam ahead and I think he’ll be a huge chance in a Doncaster, on his work and on his trials, he’s the real deal.
“He’s obviously in that right camp for the Randwick mile. I was a little bit scared of him running on this ground, but he got through it.”

Nash Rawiller (Yulong Prince): “He is in good form. He will be better suited when he gets over a bit further obviously but today he still had a bit of sprint in his legs and he really gave the race a great shake.”
Glyn Schofield (Cascadian): “He travelled well in the run but he just seemed to not really get to grips with the ground once I straightened. I was looking for a run, trying to find the best ground for him, and he just paddled away late.”
Michael Walker (Olmedo): “Nice horse. Hates the wet.”
Josh Parr (Quackerjack): “A solid effort. The ground just being so wet it just took away the advantage he has bowling along at a strong tempo and building off that. He is still in good shape for the Donny.”
Brenton Avdulla (Night's Watch): “He ran okay. Ground was a bit too wet for him.”
Jean Van Overmeire (Vegadaze): “I don’t think he got through the ground to be honest.”
Kerrin McEvoy (I Am Superman): “It was heavy ground for him and I think he is going to enjoy nicer ground. Good run but wants better footing.”
Robbie Dolan (Ringerdingding): “Didn’t like the heavy track.”
Kathy O'Hara (Nobu): “He didn’t enjoy that track at all. He had never started on a wet track and there is probably a reason for that.”
