Steadied start, held up well in rear, still there and leaders going clear when impeded 4f out, steady progress over 3f out, shaken up to take remote 5th 2f out, stayed on well after, nearest finish but hopeless task (jockey said, regarding running and riding, her instructions were to switch the gelding off and settle it in behind runners, this being its first run over 2 miles, take the shortest route possible and that the gelding would run on. jockey further added that she had asked for an effort approx 2f out but in hindsight, she had possibly let the field get too far away from her before asking the gelding to quicken. trainer rep said that having spoken to trainer on the telephone the ride accorded with the instructions given and he was satisfied with the ride given. They further added that the gelding is a horse that needs gentle handling and does not benefit from being bullied during a race) (op 14/1)
