The 10yo son of Presenting was previously trained by Michael Fitzgerald and he won twice for him, including a success over the course in April 2009.
Running for the nineteenth time since his last victory he was sent off at 8/1 for the 2m 5f contest.
He improved from before the third last and was third two out. He ran on well along the rail from before the last and he just got up on the line to score by a short head.
Michael Butler said afterwards: "I don’t know too much about him as I only have him about a month. I was told he needed better ground and it’s a bit of a nice surprise. The winning syndicate (the Light Syndicate) are from Kilkenny."

Arthur Moore’s association with Duleek owner Tim Murray goes back 40 years, and the pair were again in the winners enclosure after High Desert readily justified 11/10 favouritism in the S.E. Construction & Knockenduff Stud Beginners Chase.
