Std after jumping well, mnt held a prominent position, but in early stages rnrs to his outside were ridden positively & he was reluctant to ride forward to hold those rnrs out. Std after 1200m mnt raced keenly so he restrained to obtain cover to help it travel & run out 1400m. Std after being crossed at 1000m race tempo slowed & mnt continued to overrace, & near 700m when tempo continued to slow, mnt was checked & shifted out to avoid heels. Tnr confirmed instructions.
