'I couldn't have been happier with him since I sat on him earlier in the week. I've been looking forward to today. We decided to have him up as close as we could, and he produced so much when I pulled him out, the hairs were standing on the back of my neck some way before the line. I really love this horse.'

Craig Williams, Dunaden

'He probably had his chance, but ideally we needed something to cart him into the race. We were left in front a touch soon.'

Brett Prebble, Thumbs Up

'The horse ran great, and we could have finished closer had we not been so unlucky in the straight. He was checked before I was able to find a gap. He showed he's right up there with these good international horses.'

Thierry Jarnet, Silver Pond

'He ran a blinder. He had a beautiful run and finished it off even though the ground might have been a bit quick for him.'

Ryan Moore, Red Cadeaux

'He's a little bit away from being absolutely top class. I was surprised they made him favourite. He gave me his best but that's probably as good as he is.'

Frankie Dettori, Campanologist

'He didn't jump well from the gate, wasn't concentrating, and appeared not to handle the surface.'

Katsumi Ando, Trailblazer

'He's run OK, right up to his level, but not quite good enough.'

Marco Botti, Jakkalberry

'He's given himself every chance, but the trip is a bit short for him in this company.'

Darren Beadman, Mighty High

'I rode him to get the trip and he was going nicely for me, then he just stopped on me.'

Olivier Doleuze, Super Satin

'A little disappointing, I think the ground was too quick for him.'

Christophe Lemaire, Vadamar

'He was OK until the race started in earnest around the turn, but when I asked him he didn't really fire.'

Michael Hills, Redwood
