William Buick kept alive his thin hopes of catching Oisin Murphy in the flat jockeys’ title race as Creative Force landed the Champions Sprint at Ascot.
The Charlie Appleby-trained three-year-old was prominent throughout the Group One contest, getting a handy lead from frontrunner Glen Shiel under Hollie Doyle.
Buick cruised past Doyle with a furlong to go, finishing nicely clear of the defending champion, with Minzaal in third and Art Power in fourth.
Buick’s win closes the gap in the flat jockeys’ championship to just two, with the winner set to be decided at the end of Champions Day on Saturday.
