Moor Lane is beaten.
Moor Lane did not jump with any great fluency and his jockey Norman Williamson was hard at work some way from home.
However, the 10-year-old was persuaded to put his best foot forward in the closing stages and only went down by a couple of lengths.
Moor Lane's trainer Ian Balding admitted he was disappointed, saying: "He ran a funny race and seemed a bit flat as there was no real sparkle there."
