6/4 favourite Zafarqand finished well in the closing stages to push his rival hard and there was only a nose to seperate them at the line.
The stewards had a lengthy look at the finish and decided to let the result stand.
"That's as good a four-year-old maiden that there's been in Ireland for some time," said trainer Dermot Weld in the winners enclosure immediately afterwards.
"Both horses ran a bit green and I'd expect the result to stand. He's a very nice horse and we'll see how he comes out of this before making any plans."
