'I think he may have pulled a muscle. He felt bad in the last 400m - not like his usual self'

Frankie Dettori


'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?'

Felix Coetzee

Silent Witness

'I had the confidence before the race but the winner was too strong and he could not match it with them'

Yuichi Fukunaga


'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'

Mick Kinane

Cape Of Good Hope

'The trip was too short for him. He never got on terms with them'

Douglas Whyte


'Oh, what a horse the winner, eh? My horse is better from a good draw'

Christophe Soumillon

Able Prince

'He really wants further. The winner is some horse. Mine wasn't good enough'

Kieren Fallon

Battle Won

'He did well to force the pace early on but when Silent Witness went past him, that was that'

Eddie Lai
