Chosen Hour made a perfect start to life with Sean Aherne when popping up at 201/ in division two of the two mile five handicap hurdle in Limerick.
The six-year-old gelding finished strongly for Phillip Enright to score by a length and a quarter from 12/1 shot Bazarov Gliondar Mo Chroi (12/1) and the well backed 7/2 favourite Lady Quill came home third and fourth respectively.
Handler Sean Aherne said: "He did plenty for the last man who had him and won a handicap hurdle one day in Tipperary when he was very good.
"He is doing fine now and maybe the chance of scenery might have helped him. He's a big athletic horse, will jump a fence in time and you'd look forward to him going chasing.
"I'd like that, now. It was smashing!"
