John Quinn's charge, making his first start, edged out 14/1 shots Global Village and Brae Hill in the first big race of the new Flat racing season.

The one-mile test had a thrilling finale as 20/1 Levitate, trained by Charles Wentworth, got up at the death under 3lb claimer Darren Egan.

Last year's winner Brae Hill looked likely to land back-to-back wins in the famous handicap, only to be edged out in the dying strides.
