Dream Today held on by a head in the six furlong handicap for three-year-olds and older in Fairyhouse.
The Dream Ahead gelding made his winning thrust down the centre of the track in the final furlong but had to be tough at the finish as Independent Missy charged home.
The winner was returned at 8/1 from the 13/2 runner-up. Mrs Bouquet (11/1) and Angel Palm (7/1) came in third and fourth respectively.
Trainer Ado McGuinness said: “He (Cian Macredmond) gave him a great ride and I think the ground is the key to him.
“He had good form on good ground around a bend in Leopardstown when second to Real Appeal who won the group race last night.
“He'll go straight to the Scurry Handicap (in the Curragh) now. He's a rock solid horse. We had him in Dubai but it didn't work out for him.
“Hopefully there is a little bit more left in him, he takes a little bit of coaxing.
“That's beautiful ground out there today and I have to say they've done a fabulous job, it's like a carpet and there's no jar in it or anything like that.
“He doesn't want heavy ground or doesn't want it rattling quick.”
