City Slicker was the well-backed favourite here but he didn't get home after travelling well up the front. He faded to finish fourth.
"He's a proper horse and was unlucky the last day. I'm delighted Davy got the chance to ride him again and the horse showed what he's like," said Elliott.
"He loves soft ground and three miles and fences is what he wants. He's a nice horse.
"It's good to get a winner on a big day. We've had seconds in the three biggest handicaps of the year, the Paddy Power, the Thyestes and then today.
"I wish I had a couple more owners like Chris Jones. He's a brilliant man." (GC & EM)
