Kerrin McEvoy (Cross Counter) 1st : At the furlong I thought ‘mate, is this happening again?’. I’m just the lucky recipient. I can ride light. And to get on these lovely staying horses, so well prepared, unbelievably well by Godolphin and Charlie Appleby. My third Melbourne Cup! Wooooooaaah!”

Hugh Bowman (Marmelo) 2nd : “He ran his race. (I’m) disappointed, but proud of the horse. Congratulations to (trainer) Hughie (Morrison) for bringing him over in such good order.”

Michael Walker (A Prince Of Arran) 3rd : “He’s all heart, the horse. I couldn’t have wished for a better run but I tell you, we’ve got a top chance for next year.”

Zac Purton (Finche) 4th : “An excellent run. I think if it was a firmer track, he might have got closer.”

Wayne Lordan (Rostropovich) 5th : “He ran very well. (I was) very pleased with him, a good day.”

Craig Williams (Youngstar) 6th : “I was delighted with the performance. She was the only female in the field. We had a great run throughout and all I can say is, I wouldn’t change anything bar the result. That will just season her up and make her harder for when she comes back, she’s a fair horse.”

Dwayne Dunn (Sir Charles Road) 7th : “A super effort. We had a splendid run in transit and probably just missing the Caulfield Cup, he lacked a little bit of fitness but it was a great run.”

Pat Cosgrave (Best Solution) 8th : “(We were) slow away and playing catch-up from there. We were just too far back.”

Jim Crowley (Muntahaa) 9th : “He didn’t really travel. The ground had maybe gone a bit too soft for him. When we turned in, I thought he’d be thereabouts but he was just one-paced.”

Mark Zahra (Ventura Storm) 10th : “He gave it his all, I had a nice run but he just doesn’t stay two miles.”

James McDonald (Yucatan) 11th : “He worked into a nice spot and travelled really nicely but I felt he just didn’t stay the two mile.”

Regan Bayliss (Nakeeta) 12th : “He gave me a lovely ride throughout. I was still sort of travelling at the 600 right through to the 400 … it was a really good effort.”

Damian Lane (Zacada) 13th : “He ran great. The slow speed worked against him but he worked home really well.”

Yuga Kawada (Chestnut Coat) 14th : “He had the ideal run through the race, he tried hard and did his best.”

Patrick Moloney (Vengeur Masque) 15th : “I reckon the soft track sort of saw him out today. I don’t know whether he ran out the trip, he had a lovely run, had every opportunity but in this sort of going, I think it just found him out.”

Corey Brown (Magic Circle) 16th : “I was disappointed. I had a great run from the barrier but he never gave me a kick at all.”

Ben Melham (Who Shot Thebarman) 17th : “He’s getting on now and he probably didn’t let down the best that he could.”

Jordan Childs (Sound Check) 18th : “I thought he ran well considering. He got caught wide going out of the first corner and I had to do a lot of work in the run but he was pretty honest to the line.”

Stephen Baster (Runaway) 19th : “He gave us a great thrill winning the Geelong Cup but two miles was just too far for him today.”

Tye Angland (David Payne) 20th : “I just had to make him work form the wide gate. He was comfortable but he struggled with the trip.”

Tommy Berry (Auvray) 21st : “He just wasn’t good enough.”

Glyn Schofield (Avilius) 22nd : “We were behind the horse who had an accident in the run (The Cliffsofmoher) and it put paid to our chances.”

Damien Oliver (Red Carnival) 23rd : “He just raced a little bit keen on the slow pace. When it was time to go, he just didn’t have enough air to finish the race off.”

Ryan Moore (The Cliffsofmoher) Did not finish : (Unavailable for comment)
