can't figure out what has changed for me.

I bake a 75% hydration sourdough dour(90%white, 10% rye: preheated  pizza staone for 1 hour, bake at 460 degrees, covered with steel bowl for 15, then  uncover for rest of bake).

My slahes are opening flat across the ear...... no rise up. Ideas please!!!!
