Snoopy Loopy provided Peter Bowen with an amazing third consecutive success in the toteswinger Summer Plate Handicap Chase at Market Rasen today.

Iron Man and Yes Sir have captured the race for the last two years and the Pembrokeshire trainer sent out a quartet of runners in order to complete the hat-trick.

His two previous winners were again in the 16-strong field but neither figured as Seamus Durack and Snoopy Loopy jumped the final fence upsides Brooklyn Brownie in front of the packed enclosures.

The pair finished first and second in the Perth Gold Cup in June and again battled out the finish, but it was Bowen's 16-1 shot who prevailed this time by a length and a half.

Evan Williams' William Butler ran a blinder in his bid to take his fifth race in 13 days and he was just a length and a quarter down in third.
