10 T280  LE PEGASE  08/11/2017  173  LE PEGASE (T280) when questioned regarding the performance, rider stated that in its previous races the horse had been able to obtain a forward position without having to be hard ridden and consequently had been able to finish off its races. He said, from the outside barrier, he had to ride the horse along for a considerable distance in the early stages to clear runners to its inside in order to obtain a forward position. He said after being able to shift in to race outside a runner which was positioned behind the leader, the horse did not travel as well as it had previously mainly due to the race being run at a solid tempo. He added the horse came under pressure prior to the Home Turn and then was not able to finish off the race. He said, in his opinion, the horse's disappointing performance could be attributed to the amount of use he had to make of it in the early stages - Race 173.
