Il Paradiso was sent off the 20/1 outsider of four in the Weatherbys Hamilton Lonsdale Cup but made his presence felt in finishing a close third behind Stradivarius and Dee Ex Bee.
The Galileo colt had previously won a handicap in runaway style off a mark of 89 at the Curragh but his days in that company now look over.
He was having only his seventh run at York and confirmed himself a smart performer when fifth to Logician in the William Hill St Leger.
On his latest start he ran another cracker to be a close fourth in the Melbourne Cup at Flemington.
Hampered in the closing stages, he was promoted to third.
