David Casey got things spot-on aboard Fever Pitch in the Fethard Handicap Chase at Clonmel for owner J P McManus and trainer Arthur Moore.
The victorious Dushyantor gelding always seemed to be travelling and jumping well, not too far off the speed.
However the 7/1 shot (from 8s) had a mountain to climb up the straight as Jack Bene and Killcara Boy fought it out.
Killcara Boy and Jack Bene by half a length and three parts of a length.
His sound fencing technique stood him in good stead over the last two though and the dual Tramore scorer got there near the line to beat
Arthur Moore remarked: "He (Casey) gave him a breather across the top and the good jumps in the straight clinched it.
"He runs well after a break. He's a summer horse really and it was nice to get this. We'll probably wait until February to run him again." (TW & EM)
