Steuben landed a gamble as he gave Johnny Murtagh a first winner as a trainer at Southwell.

The eight-year-old had been off the track since October 2012, when he finished down the field in a Yarmouth handicap for Barney Curley.

Subsequently transferred to Murtagh's care, Steuben was sent off the 11-10 favourite for the £10 Free Bet At 32RedSport.com Handicap but made hard work of justifying his cramped odds in the nine-runner heat.

Master Dan looked the likely victor heading into the final furlong but Steuben dug deep to get up a by a neck in the hands of 5lb-claimer Ross Coakley.

The Murtagh-trained Bwindi had also been the subject of market support as he tackled the Macmillan Roseland Business Park AI Eastmidlands Handicap under Kieren Fallon.

The rider was noted pushing his mount along in the early stages of the one-mile-and-six-furlong heat and looked out of it at the top of the straight.

However, Fallon did not give up and while Bwindi made up plenty of ground in the final furlong, he had to be content with second behind Moving Waves.
