Their reward was victory in a handicap hurdle that carried a first prize of £11,573.
Polamco was joined at the last flight by the favourite Morito Du Berlais but was very willing under pressure as he held on in a tight finish by a neck.

It was also encouraging to hear Noel say afterwards that Polamco had never travelled and jumped as well as he did on this occasion.
