This question already has an answer here:
In the Last Jedi, the First Order fleet, commanded by General Hux is...
... chasing Resistance fleet led by the ship Raddus. The Resistance fleet is faster than the large First Order ships so Hux decides to just slowly chase them, waiting for them to run out of fuel.
Why didn't Hux just order one or more of the Star Destroyers jump slightly ahead of the Raddus and attack them from multiple angles? How is a chase situation possible when the chaser has multiple ships with hyperspace technology?
