Famous Name held on from Sharestan in a thrilling finish to win a third consecutive Heritage Stakes at Leopardstown.

Dermot Weld's ace (9-10 fav) has a touch of class and had won this race for the previous two seasons.

The seven-year-old took up the running going well over a furlong from home but had to repel a late challenge from the runner-up to score narrowly under Pat Smullen.

John Oxx's runner-up (11-8) didn't get the clearest of passages under Johnny Murtagh but picked up well in the closing stages however the line came too soon.

Northgate (33-1) ran on for third under Garry Carroll, with Hujaylea back in fourth.
