Slow to begin. Rider questioned re riding rounding home turn - stated leaving 500m reluctant to shift wider to follow Spirit Of Cherokee as he was concerned it was not going to take him into the race, given its racing manners during early and middle stages. Elected to follow Dramatic Moments into race and as a result held up on the heels of that runner in early stages of home straight. Added upon straightening positioned to inside of heels of Heza Good Boy and unable to avail himself for a run to outside of that runner without steadying and losing ground at that point. Explanation accepted.
Leaving the 500m shifted out to improve and bumped Heza Good Boy.
