: What the jockeys said after the Krisflyer International Sprint in Singapore on Sunday night.
Barend Vorster – Winner - Ato - I had the perfect trip, the only decision was whether to go inside or outside when I challenged. It is just fantastic to have won this race, I'm so very happy.
Stephen Baster – 2nd - Mr Big – He's got the biggest heart, but he slipped at the start trying to jump too quickly. Without that I am not saying he would have won, but he'd have gone even closer.
George Baker – 3rd – Secret Asset
– He broke OK but couldn't quite lay up with the leaders. I had a really lovely run around the bend, a gap opened, and he ran on well for me. He's better on a faster surface, but really, he's run a blinder.
Oscar Chavez – 4th - Captain Obvious – He has run very well, no complaints at all.
Kieren Fallon – 5th - Krypton Factor – I knew I was in trouble from the gate when the rain came. He just can't act on this ground.
Joao Moreira – 6th - Better Be The One – The draw killed him, I had to use too much horse up early to try and get a position, and he didn't finish.
Gary Carroll – 7th - Invincible Ash – I had a good trip and she travelled well, but when I asked her she never picked up on the ground. We know she needs fast ground and the rain came at the wrong time.
Jose Verenzuela – 8th - Perfect Pins – He didn't handle the turn, and couldn't get round the bend, he lost too much ground
Danny Beasley – 9th - Yin Xin – He pulled up lame. He's had issues this week.
