The configuration of the track might well be different from what think we see on the screen but having watched SHAM BLUE closely on saturday and he kept fairly close to the inside rail while FRODON repeatedly jumped left, I suppose they know what there are doing but from what we see on the telly its hard to see how SHAM covered 50yds further than FRODON.Looking at the Sectionals and distance of ground covered from start to finish, Bryony took a more efficient route around the course.
Froden = 5327.18 Distance ran
SB = 5376.36 Distance Ran
SB ran the first st to F21 300.6
Froden St To F21 304.26
However from F23 onwards Froden ran faster sectionals.
If you take the ground covered then SB could be perhaps marked up on Speed Ratings and final time.
or is it ?
