WHAT THEY SAID
'I think he may have pulled a muscle. He felt bad in the last 400m - not like his usual self'
'That's the easiest win he's ever had. He's an awesome horse to sit on. I've never sat on anyone like it. When he hit the front I felt it was early enough and he was just toying with them and at the 200m pole he pricked his ears - can you believe it?'
'I had the confidence before the race but the winner was too strong and he could not match it with them'
'He's run a blinder. It's just so unlucky for him that he has to keep coming up against an unbelievable champion but it's amazing how he keeps trying'
Cape Of Good Hope
'The trip was too short for him. He never got on terms with them'
'Oh, what a horse the winner, eh? My horse is better from a good draw'
'He really wants further. The winner is some horse. Mine wasn't good enough'
'He did well to force the pace early on but when Silent Witness went past him, that was that'
