Galloping in the score up didn't stop Major Roll from adding a Albury Derby to his tally.
The Stephen Maguire-trained three-year-old overcame the early indiscretion, a wide draw and a tough trip to win on Saturday night.
Major Roll ($1.85 fav) spent most of the race without cover, but still found enough to run down leader Tactical Response ($12) to win by a neck.
The son of Roll With Joe has now won 10 of his 17 starts, with three minor placings, and has earned just over $90,000.
The feature race was reprogrammed after insufficient for the traditional February date.
Major Roll is expected to line up in the heats of the NSW Breeders Challenge at Riverina Paceway on Friday as the starting point for the group one series.
