The well-backed 8/1 favourite, one of five representatives for owner JP McManus in the 26-runner contest, was always fairly handy and jumped better than has been the case in the past.
Golden Wonder got to the front travelling powerfully heading to the second-last fence and was still in front touching down over the last, but Geraghty had kept a little up his sleeve for the run-in and drove his willing mount - sixth in the National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham on his latest start - home to score by three-quarters of a length.
Saoirse Dun (20/1) finished a close-up third, ahead of Jamesie Hall (40/1) in fourth and fifth-placed Folsom Blue (20/1).
It was a second victory in the race for O'Neill, who also took the race in 2007 for his landlord McManus with Butlers Cabin.
Sky Bet installed the winner at 25/1 to win next year's Crabbie's Grand National at Aintree.
O'Neill said: "He was in a great position all the way and jumped really well. Everything went right for him. He has done nothing wrong all season.
"He had a great run at Cheltenham and after that we thought this was the race for him. Plan B didn't work out too badly!
"He will have good rest and is hopefully OK and we can look forward to next season. He needed a big leap at the last, he got it and battled on really well."
