Not sure about that.

I highly doubt the intention was to get back to 2nd last.

The horse looked to come out slowly and didn't muster and found itself back there as a result.

I'm sure trainer and jock would have been panicking.

Smart tactics by McEvoy. The speed was always going to be solid and she had the last say.
Well done James Cummings and KMac (AKA the best jockey in Oz).



She was well credentialed time wise & McIvoy is worth 5K .    The big finish was always on , But I must admit things were shaky on the turn.

One of those performances where Top Riders show their wares.

James Cummings admitted he was worried being so far back MJB so you are right about tactics.
But that was an amazing ride.
I started with nothing and still have most of it left

Well that's the point about McEvoy: he rarely if ever panics.

Ok misses the start, but rather than winding her up gets his mount to settle comfortably and is patient (just two of his great talents) before asking the filly for her effort.

I think most people had her slotting in just off the speed. Midfield at worst.

I gave her no chance when l saw where she landed.

Can't wait to see her again. I think she'll measure up in the best races.

If anyone other than KMac was on today, probably doesn’t win.
That’s why he is the best.

And silly me didn’t have a bet in the race
