The winner failed to keep a straight line in the straight but did comfortably defeat the third losing short-priced favourite of the evening, 4/6f Estithmaar.
Afterwards Oxx said “Creekside looked like he was hanging left first of all but when Johnny hit him, he went right – he takes a bit of steering.”
“I was sure we had too much weight beforehand and while he’s lazy, he has an engine. We’ll see what rating he gets after this but I’d say we’ll be kicked out of handicaps now! Eight or nine furlongs is his trip and we may go for something better now.”
