De Rasher Counter capped a successful two days for trainer Emma Lavelle by claiming glory in Saturday's Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury.
The seven-year-old kept himself out of trouble during the first half of the race under the stewardship of jockey Ben Jones before moving to the front five out from the finish.
The Conditional did mount a challenge to De Rasher Counter late in the race but the Makin' Bacon Partnership-owned horse held on to claim the win by a length-and-a-half.
Lavelle also saw her staying hurdler Paisley Park make a winning return on his seasonal reappearance on Friday, with the trainer quick to heap praise on De Rasher Counter's jockey Jones.
Lavelle said: "It's just unbelievable. I'm so proud of what Ben has done on him and so proud of the team.
"There were a few sore heads after (Paisley Park winning) yesterday. I can't imagine what it will be like after today."
