Jockey Quotes - The Schweppervescence

It was tough going in the heavy ground but after missing a run in the Golden Slipper, Bellevue Hill gained some consolation with an all the way win.

Find out what the jockeys made of their mounts after the Group 3 Schweppervescence (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens.

Tim Clark (Bellevue Hill): “He’s a really nice colt. The last six weeks he’s just kept improving every gallop he’s had. Genuinely thought when I galloped him Tuesday week ago that if he made the Golden Slipper he’d be very hard to beat.

“He didn’t get in but came here today, he’s had the 1400m run now. Probably didn’t love the ground but he got through it, his class got him through it.

“It’s saturated obviously with the amount of rain we’ve had. No fault of anyone, it’s just the way it is.”

Kerrin McEvoy (Strasbourg): “He stayed on well but found the ground hard work.”

Brett Prebble (Fortress Command): “He is very raw, very new and very green. There is plenty of upside.”

James McDonald (La Tene): “She went okay on unsuitable ground and a tough run.”

Blake Shinn (Rome): “He is a nice horse but he just never handled the conditions. It is testing out there today and it didn’t suit my horse but stick with him.”

Corey Brown (Autocratic): “He ran really well. He worked to the line well.”

Christian Reith (Dawn Too Good): “He was just a little bit keen today and it told in the result.”

Andrew Adkins (Chabrol): “He just wanted to travel a little bit keen over that distance on a heavy track and it just took a toll on him late.”

Tommy Berry (Persan): “He’s a lovely horse but this has probably come a prep too early for him.”

Craig Williams (Seporto): “He showed significant improvement today. He handled the track conditions. He is a lovely, big strong horse. When he comes back as a three-year-old it will be a proper way to assess him. There are a lot more options for staying horses when they turn three. He has to improve but he’s got a little there to improve on.”
