As for the Sky Lantern appeal, I think the right decision was reached as far as the rules stand. However, the rules as they stand do absolutely nothing to encourage jockeys to adhere to them and when a big prize is at stake I'd say they actually encourage the opposite.

I thought maybe one good thing that might come out of it was that Hannon and Hughes would reflect on their own (non) tactics in the race and learn from it. But then I saw an interview with Hughes where he said the pace wasn't a factor, so maybe not.

Hughes said before the race if they went no pace, he would lead.
Apparently they were 20 lengths slower at some point compared to 2012 Falmouth.
So they already knew what to do. Unfortunately Hughsie went back on the deal

I thought he'd said that too, ped. As I said before, as a punter I knew there was a possibility it might happen but still took the chance, my own fault, but if I'd known for sure Hughes would play the race like that I definitely wouldn't have made the bet.
