The Enda Bolger trained Market's Field sprang a 14/1 surprise in the Ferrybank Opel Beginners Chase, as the even money favourite Valgor Du Ronceray unseated at the seventh.

Unplaced on his previous six starts, the five-year-old son of Stowaway was settled towards rear by Donal McInerney.

He improved into a closer fourth from three out, and travelled best in third before the next. The JP McManus owned victor was ridden from the last, and stayed on best on the run-in, getting up to win by a head.

Caniwillyegiveme was the one just denied, and he had to settle for second at 11/1 under Shane Butler for Seamus Fahey.

Fenlon's Hill (16s to 12s) completed the placings another three lengths back in third for Adam Short and Paul Stafford.

Bolger said afterwards: "He got a lovely waiting ride from Donie. He was disappointing over hurdles so we said we'd crack on with him over fences. I think the race fell apart a bit with those two fallers (the aforementioned favourite and Theatre Wine).

"He is a big Stowaway horse and I think the ground probably played into his hands. He will definitely go on winter ground."
