What the jockeys said after the running of the Group One Cox Plate at Moonee Valley on Saturday.

CRAIG WILLIAMS (Pinker Pinker) 1st: “I got a feel of her up in Sydney and I felt there was a little bit more that could come out of the race (the Epsom Handicap). Even though she quickened up in the straight that day and the winner was too good for us, I said to Greg (trainer Eurell) she wasn’t that comfortable in the ground. I’ve worked her and she’s a Group One worker so I knew she had a bit more to offer. I’d worked her since she came back from Sydney and her coat was perfect and it was a matter of Greg just holding her up until raceday. She was very impressive and a deserved winner today. When we straightened, Jimmy Choux actually had really good acceleration and put a bit of a gap on me and I thought `Uh oh, we might run second’. And then I came out and just gave her a bit of a tap and she just took off and she was just never going to get beaten from then on.”

JONATHAN RIDDELL (Jimmy Choux) 2nd: “It’s a scary feeling hitting the front when you’ve still got a bit of a horse underneath you. I thought Helmet might have carried me into the race a bit more. I had a lovely run, I used him up a little bit early but once I dropped my hands I was purring. I think I got beaten by the better run on the day rather than the better horse – match them up again and I think we beat her.”

DWAYNE DUNN (Rekindled Interest) 3rd: “We just ran into a traffic jam on the home bend.”

DARREN BEADMAN (Wall Street) 4th: “He ran well. He broke the back gate so he was half out the back when they let them go. It was a pretty good effort. His run came to an end in the last 50 (metres) but it was a good effort.”

BRENTON AVDULLA (Secret Admirer) 5th: “She ran well. They ran along genuine enough and I got on the back of Playing God down to the corner and I was travelling quite well. I just got a little bit off-balance around the corner but it was first time round the Valley. I think she’s better off back at home around Randwick with those big straights, but first run at 2000 she kept hitting the line and only got beaten about two lengths, she did a good job.”

STEVEN KING (Efficient) 6th: “He ran a great race. He served it up to them, we put him in the race early and let him have a crack at them, he ran a very honest race.”

LUKE NOLEN (King’s Rose) 7th: “I messed it up.”

KERRIN McEVOY (Helmet) 8th: “We got across into a nice spot without spending too much juice. I was pretty happy with the run we had. I got a nice rest between the 1200 and the 700 … when I asked him to go when Jimmy Choux sort of challenged, he just probably levelled out. It’s fair to say he didn’t see the trip out strongly.”

CHRIS O’BRIEN (Sincero) 9th: “The run was good. He got held up when we wanted to be going forward and then got shuffled back. Afterwards he hit the line good, I’m very happy with the run.”

DAMIEN OLIVER (Glass Harmonium) 10th: “When Wall Street escaped out the back of the stalls, it caused a bit of a ruckus and he started to get agitated in the gates so he was on the back foot and missed it a little bit. It didn’t help his chances because he’s a horse who likes to race up on the speed. We got further back than we would have liked and it didn’t give him his best chance to perform.”

STEVEN PARNHAM (Playing God) 11th: “I was happy with the run he got from the barrier and I got a nice cart-up behind Efficient. He probably found them just a bit tough at this level at the 2000 at this stage of his career.”

STEVE ARNOLD (Shamrocker) 12th: “I was actually back with the winner but they just left her a bit when they sprinted. I thought it was a pretty good run for the Cup.”

BRAD RAWILLER (Avienus) 13th: “Where we got into I was happy with then down the side we got cut in half and didn’t get our chance.”

HUGH BOWMAN (Lion Tamer) 14th: “He broke down.”
