b c Night Of Thunder (IRE) - Ya Hajar (Lycius)
Swerved sharply left start, in rear, never on terms (An enquiry was held into the running and riding of the colt, which veered quickly left out of the stalls losing many lengths as a result, after initially being corrected and asked to chase the field, thereafter the colt appears to be tenderly ridden before finishing seventh of eight runners, beaten 25 lengths. The rider stated that his instructions were to jump out and ride the race as he found it, getting the colt to finish in the best possible position. jockey said the colt was slowly away and ducked left losing a significant amount of ground and was never travelling thereafter, a fact he had reported at Scales, and in his opinion had lost any chance of being competitive as a result. Watson further stated that at no point in the race did he place the colt under any form of pressure to improve, and again reiterated his position that there was no point in trying to recover ground from such an uncompetitive position. The trainer stated that from the limited footage he had seen on TV, he was satisfied with the ride considering what the colt had done at the start of the race.) (op 12/1)
