Gee, looking at the Bat replay, I'd think the way it was run was the only possible way AZZALAND could have been beaten.
Gary Baker won't need to be told, but his ride from the turn to the 200 was difficult to understand. I guess he was waiting for the run which never came. Had he come inside or outside from the turn, AZZALAND wins comfortably, IMO. Little compensation to connections and those who backed him.
