Tracey Collins' charge had been runner-up on two starts this season but made no mistake this time.
Michael Hussey drove his mount into the lead a furlong-and-a-half out and he stuck on gamely in the closing stages.
25/1 shot Moscow Treat tried hard to throw down a challenge from over a furlong out but couldn't peg back the favourite, going down by half a length.
The winner proved popular on course, backed from 4/1 into 3/1.
"Michael was very good on him and needed to be strong," said Collins.
"He's so consistent and deserved that. I think he's already got his penalties!"
"We'll see how he comes out of this. He has two entries for next week (Naas & Gowran)."
