Plan Of Attack (7/2) made most for a comfortable win in the qualified riders' handicap hurdle at Limerick.

Henry de Bromhead's five-year-old, in the first-time cheekpieces, travelled powerfully for Barry O'Neill approaching the home straight and had all his rivals bar Whatsinthecorner and Rathnaleen Girl cooked two out.

Rathnaleen Girl was first to crack over that flight as Whatsinthecorner attempted to reel in Plan Of Attack.

However, a nimble jump at the last saw Plan Of Attack land full of running and he put well backed 9/4 favourite Whatsinthecorner away by four and a quarter lengths.

Rathnaleen Girl completed the placings some 13 lengths away at 9/1.
