"He is a nicely related horse and his dam is closely related to Florida Pearl and he should make a very nice chasing prospect next season."
Co Antrim-based trainer Harry Smyth won his first for almost seven years when the cast of men under Cantrell 7lb conditional Mattie Bowes chicken and deer barrier disruption parties descended on.
Smyth said, 'I have four horses in training and I only work with cast-offs from other yards! I was given Cantrell by his previous owners and the good thing about training cast-offs is at least nobody expects anything of you'.
Doyle said, "He has small feet and is a light horse but had been working very well".
"We would have been happy with a first four or five finish today though and he'll have one more run before going to Punchestown."

He said, "Aikman has come out of the race very well and I think he now will have the opportunity to go to Cheltenham".
He has five entries and the only one he definitely won't run in is the Supreme. I would prefer not run in the two handicaps he's in even though he's now as short as 16-1 for the Coral.
He's in the Martin Pipe Handicap as well, but probably his choices will be the Neptune or the Albert Bartlett.
Captain Americo goes for the National Hunt Chase and is in tip-top form. He was ridden out this morning and is as good as ever.
Cheltenham is a very special place and you only go there when you believe you have something you have a chance with. I've been training for seven years and we've never had a runner at the Festival.
This year we will have two. We are only going there with Aikman and Captain Americo because they truly represent the best chances we've ever have had of a runner with potential to be placed or even possibly win a race."

"The plan is to give him an entry in the Finesse Hurdle at Cheltenham a week on Saturday. How he runs there will hopefully help us decide between the Fred Winter and the Triumph Hurdle," the trainer said.
"He came out of Doncaster absolutely A1, he just hasn't really had a proper test yet. We know he's got a serious engine, we just need to know how serious.
"We were hoping there might be something that would want to go off in front and set a good pace, but that didn't happen so we didn't really learn much except that he's still progressing and is still a bit green really.
"There's not really a lot of time between now and the Festival in real terms and you need to know what kind of horse you've got."
