Jockey stated his instructions had been to drop in and settle the gelding with a view to getting the gelding to finish its race off as the gelding has a history of being keen at home. Jockey added that after whipping round at the start and forfeiting many lengths, the gelding had raced keenly throughout due to being unable to obtain cover. Jockey added that the gelding had come off the bridle at the end of the back straight and jumped poorly in the home straight. He therefore felt it prudent to hold the gelding together. Trainer confirmed the instructions and stated that he was satisfied the ride accorded with those instructions, adding that the gelding had also been very keen in the preliminaries)
