Find out what the jockeys said about their mounts after the running of the $15m Everest at Randwick.

James McDonald (Nature Strip): “I’ve never woken up in the morning and been so confident. Even though he’s just got there. The man who trains it is just an absolute master. I don’t know what he does, he’s just a freak of a trainer.

“The horse is a star. I knew we’d see something really good today. The build up has been so good. Everyone one has wiped him off having run in it three times and hasn’t done any good. It’s been different this time around. The horse gives his all.

“I’ve been nervous on him before but not today. I wasn’t when he won the Moir one year. I think I would have been more nervous if he drew in. I would have had things to sort out. When they challenged I was sick. Physically ill cantering past the post. Just prayed and hoped that they got there.”

Tommy Berry (Masked Crusader): “Just cost himself at the start.”

Nash Rawiller (Eduardo): “He went outstanding. Ran his heart out. Couldn’t ask for any more.”

Hugh Bowman (Lost And Running): “Just delighted with him. Presented to perform at his best on the day and he’s delivered.”

Kerrin McEvoy (Classique Legend): “He’s run well. Got back further than what I thought he would. The pace was strong. Got into the three wide line to move into it. He gave his best effort. We just came up a little bit short this year. Les has done a great job with him.”

Jason Collett (Gytrash): “I was disappointed with the performance. He had the right run to be in the finish. Didn’t find when asked.”

Josh Parr (Trekking): “Terrific effort. They went fast and kept running. That levelled him out the last but it was a terrific effort.”

Tim Clark (Wild Ruler): “He had to do a bit of work early. Was found wanting late.”

Regan Bayliss (The Inferno): “We followed Classique Legend. We travelled really nice, got into a nice rhythm. When the pressure came on he just dropped the bridle for me. They aren’t making a huge lot of ground today. I thought he was honest.”

Jean Van Overmeire (Embracer): “I thought he tried really hard. He’s slightly below that level.”

Sam Clipperton (Libertini): “I thought her effort was sound.”

Glen Boss (Home Affairs): “Unfortunately he came off the bridle very quickly as we straightened. He didn’t have a lot to offer which really surprised me. He is a far better colt than that.”
