The son of Lope De Vega, who is owned by Saleh Al Homaizi & Imar Al Sagar, proved tractor-like in the soft ground, making just about all under Jack Mitchell to win by five lengths from the Richard Hannon-trained Prerogative, building on his runner-up effort at Ripon last month.

As class five contests go, this was a particularly straightforward task for Oden, who travelled sweetly off the front end and had all of his rivals hard at work coming down the hill.

Jack did not have to ask any serious questions of his mount to maintain that advantage approaching the final furlong and he was kept up to his work at the business end of the race, winning very comfortably.

A half-brother to the useful Baadi from the family of the exceptional Alexander Goldrun, Oden is well equipped to continue his progress throughout the autumn.

Roger said: “Oden bumped into a rival who enjoyed the run of the race last time out and he has appreciated the positive tactics in soft ground here. He is a big stamp of a horse who should continue to improve and his ability to handle testing ground should stand him in good stead for the remainder of the campaign.”
