Michael Hourigan's charge had been in fine form on the Flat already this year and made a winning return to the jumping game.
The well-backed Sadler's Wells gelding (11/4 into 2/1) had a cosy length to spare at the line.
Distant Memories was sent off 7/4 favourite but after racing keen early he failed to jump with any fluency and could only finish fifth. He was reported to be blowing hard post-race.
"He'll probably get a break now and go out to grass," said Hourigan of the winner afterwards.
"He'll come back in for the Galway festival and might go for a winners hurdle."
