Willie Ryan, Benny The Dip, 1st: "We started to stretch at the five-furlong pole. I was surprised that he had gone so far clear, but he stuck his neck out when he needed to."

PAT EDDERY, SILVER PATRIARCH, 2nd: "At the furlong marker I was pretty sure I'd catch the winner, but he kept going and didn't stop."

JOHN REID, ROMANOV, 3rd: "I was further back than I wanted early on. Then I followed the favourite through and he didn't take me where I wanted to go."

MICHAEL KINANE, ENTREPRENEUR, 4th: "He was never travelling that well. I was fighting a losing battle from a long way out. You hope for the best and then it turns into a nightmare."

RAY COCHRANE, THE FLY, 5th: "I was squeezed leaving the stalls, then when they quickened up he was a little green and they left him."

RICHARD HILLS, FAHRIS, 6th: "He got a bit tired in the last two furlongs."

KIEREN FALLON, SYMONDS INN, 7th: "At the top of the hill I had a perfect position. Then they quickened and though he ran on in the straight, by that time the race was over."

MICHAEL HILLS, MUSALSAL, 8th: "He didn't have the speed."

FRANKIE DETTORI, BOLD DEMAND, 9th: "When they started the downhill course I was in trouble. The track didn't suit him."

OLIVIER PESLIER, CLOUDINGS, 10th: "I had a good place but all the horses went on and I had nothing."

DAVID HARRISON, SINGLE EMPIRE, 11th: "I was struggling a long way out. He didn't really handle the track."

TONY MCGLONE, CRYSTAL HEARTED, 12th: "I was happy until three furlongs out and then he stopped quickly."

GARY CARTER, PAPUA, 13th: "He lacks the class for a race like this."
