Forpadydeplasterer: First win in three years in the Glen Chase at Thurles

Popular Irish chaser Forpadydeplasterer recorded his first victory in well over three years with a stylish performance in the Glen Chase at Thurles.

Although without a victory since his Arkle Trophy success at the 2009 Cheltenham Festival, Tom Cooper's 10-year-old has filled the runner-up spot on a number of occasions at the very highest level.

Sent off a 3-1 shot faced with five rivals on his second attempt a three miles, Forpadydeplasterer was ridden patiently by Bryan Cooper but made eyecatching headway to take closer order rounding the home turn.

Snooze did his best out in front, but Forpadydeplasterer took over at the final fence and kicked clear to score by five and a half lengths.

Berties Dream just grabbed third spot from 2011 Grand National runner-up Oscar Time, who ran a perfectly satisfactory race on his first appearance in a year.
