Find out what the jockeys made of their mounts after the Group One Inglis Sires' (1400m) at Randwick on Day 1 of The Championships.
James McDonald (Anamoe): “He is a marvelous horse. What he did in the Slipper was just incredible. To come and do that to good quality horses in a Group One is just incredible. He is the Rolls Royce of two-year-olds racing.”
“It is the first time I’ve ever sat on him and ever seen him in the flesh. I actually haven’t really taken much notice. He oozes a lot of class. When I cantered around to the gates and pulled him up to a trot, every hoof was clicking. I was thinking, ‘jeez he has got some stride on him this horse,’ because he just strides out. He is a very enthusiastic colt, very push button.”

Tom Marquand (Captivant): “Ran enormous. Still maturing. When he comes into himself he will be a really nice horse in the future.”
Luke Nolen (Lightsaber): “Come to the end of it.”
Hugh Bowman (Tiger Of Malay): “Wide draw didn’t help but it was no excuse.”
Luke Currie (Daily Bugle): “It was a good effort. He held his ground but the winner was a class above.”
Kerrin McEvoy (Hilal): “Good effort ran the trip out well.”
Tim Clark (Four Moves Ahead): “Probably just come to the end of the prep. She’s had a good prep. She ran bravely.”
Jamie Kah (Queen Of Wizardry): “Really good. Just crying out for further.”
Damian Lane (Chill): “Probably had enough.”
