Tommy Carmody's charge had been a short price here last month only for his saddle to slip before halfway. He did well in the circumstances to finish second.
The 5/2 shot (from 2/1) kept on well for pressure inside the final furlong to post a three-parts-of-a-length success.
33/1 shot Lions Charge finished best of all to grab the runner-up spot from 2/1 favourite Kharezi.
The winning trainer made a hasty exit from the winners' enclosure after greeting the Motivator gelding.
Doonard Prince prevailed in a tight finish to the second division of the seven-furlong handicap at Dundalk.
