The seven-year-old had secured a deserved success at Fairyhouse six days ago, after a couple of near misses, and wasted no time in repeating the dose.
It was another finely judged ride from Colin Keane who produced his father Gerry's charge with a strong run inside the final furlong.
He wore down 3/1 favourite Sheilas Wish (from 7/2) and went on to record a length-and-a-quarter success. The winner was relatively easy to back drifting from 5/2 out to 100/30.
"He's in again at Down Royal on Saturday but that might be a bit greedy. We'll see how he is in the meantime," said Keane senior.
"He's a grand horse and takes no training once he's fit. He didn't have a saddle on him from last Wednesday to last Sunday and has only done a couple of canters."
