Holiday Girl was sent straight to the front by Billy Lee and refused to go down without a fight when challenged by O'Brien's Key To My Heart in the home straight, but neither could repel the late challenge of the eventual winner.
The Galileo filly finished with a wet sail under Declan McDonogh and crossed the line with a length to spare from Holiday Girl.
"She's a nice filly. She's straightforward and Declan gave her a great ride" said the winning trainer.
"She'll be a nice filly for Aidan (O'Brien) next year."
