Find out what the jockeys said about their mounts after the running of the G1 Cox Plate at Moonee Valley.

Winning Jockey (State Of Rest): John Allen

It looked tough out there: “There was a bit of a bump there and I couldn’t celebrate. Thank God we got the win and it’s been a great job by Mark and the team.”

The hearing: “Craig’s always a good talker, we all know that. I think there were too many Paddy’s in there for them to understand us. The way it was going, there were a few anxious moments but I think the right decision was made.”

Describe the performance: “The race panned out pretty well. When the gap appeared I had to ask him to improve quick before it closed and we might have got there a little too soon, but to his credit when that horse got to me, he really fought was solid to the line.”

Beaten jockeys:

Daniel Moor – Dalasan: “I think the 2000 metres might be drawn out when they run that brutal tempo.”

Luke Nolen – Callsign Mav: “Even run.”

Hugh Bowman – Mo’unga: “Very game effort. Fantastic race. Just came up a bit short today.”

Damian Lane – Verry Elleegant: “Super run. Thought I was the winner down the side but to the first two’s credit they gave a kick and it was a margin that I couldn’t pull back.”

Brett Prebble – Probabeel: “Ran super. It’s not her preferred footing but gave me an awesome feel and as soon as I went for another gear she couldn’t go in it.”

Craig Williams – Anamoe: “Went fantastic. Flowed along nicely. I’m glad I changed my mind and went on the inside instead of the outside. Unfortunately we didn’t win on the track and I was hoping we would in the stewards room.”

Dean Yendall – Captivant: “Just didn’t like the wet. Just never went.

Additional from Craig Williams: “It is our greatest Australian weight-for-age race that we have and the performance of this three-year-old was excellent, very game in defeat. Contact was made but the winner that we had grounds to hopefully overturn the positions in the stewards room but we weren’t so fortunate. That’s racing and we move on.

“He is a serious racehorse and for a three-year-old to go so close, he’s a real Australian star in the making. Looking forward to his future starts and unfortunately we ran second today.”
