b g Arakan (USA) - One Love (IRE) (Bravefoot)
In rear, not fluent 1st, soon became detached, nudged along before 3 out, shaken up and some headway from 2 out, never on terms (jockey said, regarding running and riding, his instructions were to ride gelding patiently and get the gelding to switch off. he explained that it was his intention to keep gelding on the bridle for as long as possible as he only has one run once asked. after making a mistake at the first hurdle becoming detached, the gelding never travelled and made a noise thereafter; all facts he reported at scales. he added that the strong early gallop made it difficult to make up ground so therefore attempted to kid gelding along for the duration of the back straight to keep him interested, believing the field may have come back to him. on this occasion however, the rider reported that the gelding continued to make a noise up the home straight, making little ground up on the field and on pulling up, gelding was very tired. trainer's representative confirmed the instructions and stated that she was satisfied that the ride accorded with those instructions) (op 13/2)
