b g Olympic Glory (IRE) - Shamah (Unfuwain)
Held up in rear, headway when hit 3 out, ridden and weakened quickly before 2 out (following an enquiry into running and riding, jockey said his instructions had been to settle gelding towards the back of the field and get it to finish the contest as well as possible; he added, being mindful of the testing conditions, he purposefully took the gelding wide early on to race on what he believed would be better ground and was happy with his early position with the gelding travelling well; he continued that shortly after passing the winning post for the second time, the eventual winner had moved off his inside and when asked to make progress his gelding was unable to hold its position and had started to struggle; he added that the gelding had started to come back onto the bridle going down the hill in the back straight, before making a bad mistake at the third-last hurdle which knocked the wind out of the gelding and resulted in it getting very tired; he further added that he gave the gelding a hands and heels ride and a few slaps down the shoulder in the home straight in order to keep the gelding going forward and continued to push it all the way to the line, but the gelding was tiring and, in his opinion, could not have finished any closer; trainer rep's confirmed the instructions and stated that he was satisfied the ride accorded with those instructions; their explanation was noted) (op 25/1)
