Following two scearios possible !!!

TLC-----CM---H ----BB
CM-----TLC---H----BB

hence :
A-> CM cannot be third
B->BagOBones cant be better than fourth -> eliminate
C-> finished third is wrong
D->Perfect may have finshed first but never last
E->this is wrong in both the cases as shown above
IMO D
Whats the OA?

How is TLC-----CM---H ----BB a valid scenario considering "No horse finished ahead of Cold Molasses"

CM was first and no horse finished between CM and TLC, so TLC had to be second

I'm in doubt with C. CM is first, so TLC is the second. It can't finish third. I agree with B, because BOB could finish third, if are only the 3 horeses in the race. What is the source of this question?
