pushed along briefly, soon led and made rest, pushed along when faced challenge from 2f out, ridden and ran on from over 1f out, soon went clear, eased towards finish, comfortably (trainer's representative said, regarding apparent improvement in form, gelding was allowed to dictate the pace today and appreciated the underfoot conditions, which in his opinion were contributing factors to the improved performance)
