Murtagh, doubling his score having won aboard Watsdachances earlier, got his nicely-supported (9/2 this morning into 100/30) mount to the front a furlong and a half out on his way to seeing off Spirit Of Concorde by three and a quarter lengths.
The Ballydoyle favourite, Father Of Science (8/11 this morning out to 5/2) could manage only fifth whilst his stablemate Exact (9s this morning into 4s) fared worse in eighth. Jim Bolger's Tiger At Heart (13/2 into 4/1) came home in sixth.
Jimmy 'Slim' O'Neill representing John Oxx said: "Johnny said the track woke him up as he's quite lazy and laid-back at home.
"He'll go on better ground and we'll stick at this trip with him." (AM & EM)
