Stuccodor came with a strong run to win under Pat Smullen

Dermot Weld and Pat Smullen landed a big-race double at the Curragh as Stuccodor took the www.thetote.com Irish Lincolnshire.

The in-form pair struck earlier on the card when Vote Often won the Group Three Park Express Stakes and Stuccodor made no mistake just an hour later.

Despite carrying plenty of weight, the five-year-old was the 11/2 favourite for the fiercely-competitive handicap following a couple of decent efforts over hurdles.

Pat Shanahan's That's Plenty travelled strongly against the stands rail, but Stuccodor dug deep in the closing stages to get up and take the valuable prize by three-quarters of a length.

Canary Row and Bold Thady Quill finished third and fourth respectively, with the sole British-trained runner, Richard Fahey's Lord Aeryn, fifth.

Weld said: "He's been a very consistent horse for us and it was a very good ride from Pat.

"He was touched off by a stable companion at Galway last year, so he deserved to win a big pot and he's effective on that ground.

"He'll go back over hurdles later in the year."
