Gordon Elliott completed a Downpatrick double on Wednesday when Le Grand Chene stayed on dourly to land the 2m 2f handicap chase.
The 9-4 favourite was held up towards the rear of the seven-runner field by Bryan Cooper, but looked in trouble when off the bridle much earlier than his rivals.
Pointview Gale jumped the last in front, but Le Grand Chene kept finding for Cooper's strong drive and took over on the turn for home, eventually coming two and three-quarter lengths clear.
Earlier Buyer Beware struck on his debut for Elliott in the 2m 2f maiden hurdle.
The 7/2 favourite looked a shade keen for Roger Loughran in the early stages, but once opening a clear lead at the second last, the race was never in doubt as he came home three and three-quarter lengths ahead of Solar Heat.
Elliott said: "It mightn't have been the strongest race in the world but he did it well. He'd be a stone better on good ground.
"He might go to Perth in three weeks time for a novice hurdle."
