The 7/4 favourite Moskovite tried to make a race of it down to the last, but she had run in snatches a bit and could find no more as Demi Plie ran on to win readily by four lengths, with Mrs Lovett (10/1) another four and three quarter lengths back in third.
The winner scored twice over hurdles last year, but has really improved over fences with her record now standing at three from six, having won on better ground at Downpatrick in June and Listowel in September.
“That’s a nice pot to get with her and from day one jumping was her game, said winning trainer Padraig Roche.
“She is not bred for it but she’s taken to fences really well and Aine gave her a great ride.
“We’ll keep her to mares’ races and see if we can get a bit of black type with her. I’d say she will be in foal next year.”
