Recite A Prayer was soon driven into the lead by Danny Mullins and kept on well to draw two and A half lengths clear at 11/2. Darrens Hope took plenty of credit in second at 5/1 and was half A length in front of Shady Operator (4/1 joint favourite).
The jockey, who brought up A double, said: "That was good. He missed the last at Punchestown which might have been the difference of the race but learned from that and jumped the last well today which sealed it.
"He has progressed nicely through the winter to get up to this level and hopefully he can continue A bit more. He is looking well and doing all the right things at home.
"He stays quite well but is getting sharper all the time and it was A good pot to win today."
