Danawi survived a protest from race outsider Mizzy who dove at him right on the line.
Find out what the jockeys made of their runs in the G3 Ming Dynasty (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens.
James Innes Jnr (Danawai): “I was confident I got it, but looking at the replay I may have gone off too early. The horse is still learning his trade, as I said last start, but gee I was happy to see my number pop up."
“He could quite easily go the wrong way if he was with another stable. Tim’s a great horseman and he shows that in his runners, but can’t complain with how he’s going."
Danawi holding off Mizzy... just
James McDonald (Outrageous): “He ran really well, he’s a lovely colt first time riding him. Travelled beautifully but just with the big weight, it pulled him up a little bit.”
Tye Angland (Toulouse): “I thought he ran well, he’s obviously looking for further, he’s David’s (Payne) Derby horse so he’ll have him peaking at the right time.”
Rachel King (Exceltic): “Really good run just spun his wheels a little bit when I first asked him to quicken, but he finished off well.”
Tim Clark (Aramayo): “Good run, really nice horse and will appreciate further.”
Jay Ford (Dealmaker): “Lovely run, he’s obviously in for a good preparation as he rises in distance.”
Glyn Schofield (Cloak): “He just struggled in the ground.”
Kerrin McEvoy (Signore Fox): “Got no cover.”
Winona Costin (Intense Focus): “Just not quite up to that today.”
Jason Collett (Onthetake): “Never on the track from that barrier, did too much work around the bend.”
Andrew Adkins (Mizzy): “It was a huge run, she had a really good run in the race, jumped really positively, travelled keen throughout which was good and she was strong late. I thought I won.”
