Philip Hobbs' Sausalito Sunrise stayed on strongly under Richard Johnson to win the Murphy Group Handicap Chase from Upswing.

The seven-year-old was pulled up at Chepstow on his seasonal reappearance but he put that behind him with an impressive success in which his toughness came to the fore.

Johnson bided his time on Sausalto Sunrise but took up the running two from home, sweeping by Knockanrawley on the final turn after that horse had taken over the lead from Rigadin De Beauchene who had looked revitalised for much of the race in first-time blinkers.

Knockanrawley styaed on well and wasn't out of it despite a slight mistake two out, but it was Upswing who emerged as the main threat on the outside.

However, Sausalito Sunrise toughed it out up the hill from Upswing, with the game Knockanrawley third and Cogry fourth.
