Held up towards rear, pushed along and headway after 2 out but hanging left when straightening up before last, kept on run-in but never any threat (jockey said regarding running and riding that his instructions had been to drop the gelding out, as is customary, and come off a strong pace, but the gelding had not jumped well early on and he had to take a wide path from the third last. He added that when asked for an effort after the second last, found little in response and had to avoid a fallen rider at the final flight, which further inconvenienced the gelding) (tchd 9/1)
