Jackie Brown (5/1) had shown much improved form when second at Sligo on her previous start and went one better in the six furlong handicap for three-year-olds.
Ben Coen 's mount tracked the leaders and came through to gain a narrow advantage in the final furlong. Coen had to be at his strongest to keep her in front and the daughter of Smooth Daddy was all out to repel 66/1 outsider The Foghorn by a short head with One For Mum a further neck away in third.
Winning trainer Tony Martin said: "The jockey knew her well from last year and gave her a brilliant ride. It's great for the lads (Starglazing Ltd), they are local to me and it's lovely to win at their local track for them.
“She had a good run the last day and it couldn't have worked out better. We'll tiddle away and see what happens.”
