Denise 'Sneezy' Foster has got a good tune out of this tricky customer and the British-bred, equipped with a hood here, already has two handicap hurdle successes under his belt.
A winner at Powerstown Park in the past, again Adrian Heskin was aboard, and after always being up there, the chestnut led early in the straight before holding off the outsider, Caddy Man, by a length and three parts.
Another long-priced runner, 33/1 shot, Stabilo still had a squeak (most likely held) when departing at the last.
Son-in-law to the winning trainer, 'Fozzy' Stack reported that 'Sneezy' couldn't be in attendance owing to a cruciate knee ligament injury. He also complimented Heskin for giving the winner "a very good ride."
