Price & Newitt Praise Pompeii Ruler 4th-Place
Pompeii Ruler's Australian jockey Craig Newitt commented: "He is probably a length off the world's best & it was a sensational run. He ran to the best of his ability, but probably found the track a bit firm. He toughed it out well & it was probably a career-best run given the quality of the field." Pompeii Ruler's trainer Mick Price added: "He had every chance & was well ridden by Craig, but I think he would have finished better if there was a bit of "give" in the ground. He's run up to his best. Considering it was a fast track, he's run super."
