Fourteen weeks after giving birth to a daughter, Rebecca Curtis scored her first Festival success since 2015 when the 50/1 chance Lisnagar Oscar stormed home for her fifth win at The Festival in total.
 
Ridden by Adam Wedge, for whom it was a first Festival win, seven-year-old Lisnagar Oscar beat Ronald Pump by two lengths, with Bacardys in third.
 
Curtis said: "He ran a blinder on his last run and I am not sure whatever happened to him at the beginning of the season. We did find a few ulcers and things, so we treated him for that and he was so well at home. I thought 50/1 was a massive price. 

"Adam is what I call such a solid, solid jockey. I am delighted for him to get his first Festival winner. He has given the horse a brilliant ride.
 
"I'm absolutely delighted. I thought he had a big chance today; I didn't think he would beat [2019 winner] Paisley Park, but I thought he'd get placed. To see him improve that much - I'm just delighted. I was thinking, 'don't get caught, don't get caught.' He took a nice pull all the way and I thought they went a good gallop.
 
"it's a time when I need it; I'm trying to rebuild the yard. I've had four winners here before, but it's been five years, so it's just great to win another one."
 
Wedge, who enjoyed a first G1 success earlier this season with Esprit Du Large in Sandown's Henry VIII Novices' Chase, said: "I thought we'd have very good each-way chance, but I never expected that. I'm having a brilliant season and this is the cherry on top. To come here and get that is unbelievable. I'll never forget it."
 
He added: "I've just got very good people supporting me in Evan (Williams, trainer of Esprit Du Large), Emma (Lavelle, who saddled the disappointing favourite Paisley Park) and of course Becky (Curtis), who has a small team but does very, very well. They are just great people."
 
Reflecting on how the race had gone for him he said: "Apple's Jade went off very hard and for the first circuit I was a bit cold, but Becky had done a fantastic job and when he came alive I was able to fill all the way down the hill. After the last I just had to hope he'd keep galloping, and he did. 
 
"He's worn his heart on his sleeve and tried his heart out. He was all out, but he's done very well. He's not very big, but he was fantastic."
