Verdict

Another result for the layers as 33-1 outsider CHIEF DAN GEORGE held on to deny the well-supported 9-2 favourite The Package in a thrilling photo finish. Jimmy Moffatt's 10-year-old was always in the front rank while The Package was held up last as stablemate and former Grand National winner Comply Or Die took them along. He faded under a big weight as the race began to unfold, with Ogee and Bensalem travelling ominously well behind the eventual winner. Bensalem must've been trading short in-running approaching the second last but he fell at that fence allowing Ogee and Chief Dan George to battle on towards the last. The Package came inching closer under a strong drive from Timmy Murphy and after overtaking Ogee he closed on Chief Dan George with every stride but the post came just in time. Offshore Account would've been a closer fourth but for a late blunder while The Tother One stayed on for fifth in first-time blinkers under Ruby Walsh.
