Empresario produced a performance full of guts to take the Latin Quarter Beginners Chase at Galway.

Matthew Smith's 12-1 chance was given a fine ride from the front by Mark Enright, at one stage holding a big advantage on the field.

As the pack closed he looked like being swallowed but dug deep to hold all-comers, passing the line two lengths ahead of Guitar Pete.

Smith said: "His experience stood to him, and he jumped brilliant. Mark gave him a great ride. It's great to get a winner here, and that's my first at the Festival although I've only had a few runners.

"He wasn't doing a stroke in front but when the other horses came to him, he kept on well. He's entered up on Sunday, and we'll have to have a look at it."
