Not when ridden like that in a race that was devoid of pace
Especially after his ride on Electric Light in the previous
Having gone over the replays quickly it looks like it was a day where you couldn't make ground wide
seemed to be a lane about 4 horses wide and anything that pulled out wider just seemed to labour.
Both of Pike's rides mentioned here, Flirtini was another, nothing in the Railway etc etc.
Interesting Pike stayed inside in the last, popped off the fence in the straight and won easily.
