JOCKEYS tackled the Galleywood Hurdle on day two of the May Racing Carnival on Wednesday.

Huge run – it's got his confidence back. I needed something to soften the leader a little bit and it was not going to be me.

They shared their thoughts on their respective runs after the 3200-metre race.

2nd: HONEY STEEL’S GOLD

Shane Jackson: Huge run – it's got his confidence back. I needed something to soften the leader a little bit and it was not going to be me. I wanted to get the drop on him.

3rd: URBAN EXPLORER

Martin Kelly: He ran a huge race. He hit a bit of a flat spot down the back before the third last.

4th: ANGELOLOGY

Steven Pateman:  He went OK but the winner probably broke his heart. He got within a length before the business end but he couldn't go on with it.

5th: ARCH FIRE

Jamie Mott: He was a bit disappointing today. He had really good run in the race. I was able to get on the back of the winner getting to the second last but he couldn't quicken.

6th: JOHN MONASH

Tom Ryan: I would say he just needed the run badly. He only had one flat run before that. I would say he will improve of that run.

7th: TREMEC

Arron Lynch: He was just grinding away and hit the second last and that was the end of him.
