Carlingford Lough came out of nowhere to power through the field and take the Irish Gold Cup at Leopardstown.
The JP McManus-owned horse was placed well behind Gilgamboa stablemate by the bookmakers, but the 20/1 outsider easily passed Road To Riches on the home straight after Valseur Lido fell at the final fence when leading.
Road To Riches was the pre-race favourite, but Noel Meade's horse was below his best over the fences and was then found wanting when Carlingford Lough stepped on the accelerator, winning by 12 lengths with Fine Rightly (33-1), running a huge race in third.
Winning jockey Mark Walsh was understandably delighted
"I didn't think I was going to win three out," he said.
"They went a hell of a gallop the whole way and I was never travelling, never happy with him at all.
"I just kept going gently with him, but at the third-last I thought I was going nowhere and I was nearly going to pull up.
"I just kept tipping away and once I jumped the second-last the others stopped in front of me and he kept galloping."
