b m Lawman (FR) - Law Of Chance (Pennekamp)
Soon pushed along in rear, good headway final furlong, finished well (an inquiry was held into the running and riding of the mare which was held up towards the rear throughout before being asked for an effort approaching 2f out and staying on strongly under a hands and heels ride to finish 2nd of 15 beaten a head; the rider and trainer were interviewed and shown recordings of the race and the vet reported that a post-race examination of the mare during routine testing failed to reveal any abnormalities; rider stated that her instructions were to jump handily, ride the race from there and only use the whip as a last resort; she explained that she rode her along for some distance after leaving the stalls but the mare failed to muster any early speed and therefore settled further back than intended; she added that in her opinion there was no prior opportunity to safely improve her position on the mare from after leaving the back straight until approaching the home turn due to being pocketed down on the rail; she further added that once she obtained clear running approaching 2f out, she had ridden the mare out to the best of her ability and did not resort to the whip as the mare was always responding well to her urgings in the home straight; trainer confirmed the instructions and that he was satisfied with the ride given; their explanations were noted.)
