Rider explanation re performance - stated in his opinion the horse races better when able to lead the race and dictate the speed. However, today’s race was not suitable to its racing pattern and as a result failed to respond to his riding when placed under pressure and compounded in the home straight.
Intention to lead if possible today if circumstances permit - ridden accordingly.
