The Anshan gelding has been a consistent sort without getting his head in front and gained his first success at the age of nine.
It was also a welcome winner for trainer Myles Sunderland, his first since July 2011.
"He's been knocking on the door. The horse's dam Patience Of Angels is well named in relation to the owners!
"He was second to a good horse in a point-to-point and we thought we had a champion.

"Ground is the key to him and that's as tacky as he would like it."
