He looked like he didn't want it. But I am sure he was doing his best in reality and was just a tad unfortunate.

either inept or something more sinister

given the trainer I suspect it was just inept but that's as bad as I've seen for a while

I took 11-4, had some more at the BSP. Finished 9-2 industry SP. Don't know if that's enough of a drift for the stewards to call connections in.

Race 4 - 3:55pm
The Stewards held an enquiry into the running and riding of SPECIAL CATCH (IRE), ridden by Tony Kelly and trained by Malcolm Jefferson, which was held up in rear before being asked to improve leaving the back straight and then challenged late to finish second beaten ¾ of a length. They interviewed the rider and the trainer’s representative. They also received a report from the Veterinary Officer who confirmed that a post-race examination of the gelding failed to reveal any abnormalities. The rider stated his instructions were to keep a hold of the gelding for as long as possible and creep into the race. He added that although he made in roads to the eventual winner approaching the final fence, SPECIAL CATCH (IRE) did not get as good a jump as the winner at the last and was in his opinion always being held. The trainer’s representative stated she was satisfied that the ride accorded with the instructions given and that in her opinion had obtained the best possible placing. She added that the gelding is a doubtful stayer of 2½ miles and she had instructed the rider to ride him with that in mind and not to challenge until the last fence. Having heard their evidence and viewed recordings of the race the Stewards noted their explanations.

certainly always held if you don't ask your horse for an effort until the last 100 yards.

What a load of bollox. 11/4 to 9/2 is all the stewards need to know

the worst  ride ive seen for a while even if your on a doubtful stayer its called horse racing at some point you have to put your horse in the race especially when there is one nearly 10 lengths up on you with half a mile to go tony Kelly was very lucky the winner made a balls up of the second last otherwise he would of been well beaten without ever going for his mount
