Beckwith Star (7-1) bravely landed the two-mile Easyfix Rubber Products Handicap Hurdle for a second consecutive year.

Henry de Bromhead's 10-year-old looked susceptible to Defining Year at the top of the home straight, but Dermot Weld's inmate did not find as much as had been expected and could only finish third.

Plain Sailing instead came powerfully from off the pace under Danny Mullins, but he was narrowly kept at bay by the Adam O'Neill-ridden Beckwith Star, with just a head separating the protagonists as they hit the line.

De Bromhead said :"For a 10-year-old he has some heart and is very straightforward.

"He battled really well and he can do anything (over hurdles or fences) now as he has his job done.

"Fair play to Adam, he gave him a super ride and is great value for his 5lb claim."
