My first impression, since it was the last fence in both races, was that he became over-anxious not to lose gound before the fence and thereby forfeited the spatial awareness and judgment shown by his rivals, who nevertheless lacked his raw speed.

Not that I want him to win, or for that matter, injure himself and/or get badly demoralised.

<br>I wondered, therefore, if Ruby kept him closer to the lead, obviating the need for his final burst  until after the last, i.e. starting from a little way behind on the run-in, might be the answer.

On the other hand, L’Ami sure wasn’t stopping, so there’s certainly a risk – though the final hill at Chelters would help.

Who knows, maybe he stays well enough to lead from the front!
