Having pulled up in testing conditions at Durrow last March, Hometown Hero appeared to appreciate the better ground conditions when re-appearing at Borris House last Sunday. Always positioned in the first half dozen, the son of Darsi came under pressure as the leaders kicked for home from the third last, but it was on this run to the home bend that he really hit top gear and began to eat into their advantage. Staying on very strongly, once getting his head in front, he powered clear from the last to win going away in the manner of thorough stayer.
