Dropped in from wide draw and held up in last, still last over 2f out, rapid progress on inner over 1f out, driven and ran on to take 3rd last 75yds, too late to threaten (jockey said, regarding running and riding, his instructions were to drop in and get some cover and not be caught out wide, and to ride gelding for luck and hope the gaps come in the straight; he added that he was caught behind horses rounding the final bend, but when a gap opened up he kicked on and tracked the eventual winner.; trainer said gelding is a serial bleeder and cannot be hurried during his races; he further added that the ride accorded with the instructions given, and that he was satisfied with the ride, given that gelding had pulled up and finished tailed off on its previous two starts) (op 22/1)
