Church Music (15-8 favourite) lived up to his billing with a taking victory on his debut in the Acturis EBF Maiden Stakes.
The son of 2005 Gimcrack and Middle Park winner Amadeus Wolf easily disposed of his opposition.
Always near the front rank, he was sent about his business by Graham Gibbons to lead over a furlong out and score with the minimum of fuss by a length and three-quarters.
"He's a smashing horse. He's very good and he's going to improve," said North Yorkshire trainer Kevin Ryan, who trained the sire.
"He was held up a little bit and we gave him time to grow and I said to John (Fretwell, owner) let's run him as he was getting a bit bored at home.
"This was a starting point and we'll let him get over this. I'll have a word with John and see which way he wants to go with him."
