Indeed. But was still being held up out the back whether he made those mistakes or not.

Would not have beaten the winner in a month of sundays ffs.
As per usual this comment. Where did I say he would have? But before the race he was more a guaranteed stayer than the winner was, but was ridden as though he wasn't. The 'he wouldn't have won anywsy' line that's so often used on here is no excuse for a poor ride. Hopefully he's more awake on Politologue in the next.

Did Topofthegame not just run flat? Cobden was tracking the winner throughout most of the race but was outpaced from the end of the back straight before staying on again late on
What's done is done but tracking a faster horse to try beat it for speed on a stayer was the problem. Even if the horse was 'flat'(a go to excuse imop by the jockey and one used by 99% of losing jockeys after Cheltenham), the tactic outlined above was wrong and they know it.
