Easy Terms could be set for a step up in class after earning her fifth win from six starts in the ladbrokes.com Fillies' Handicap at Pontefract.
Edwin Tuer's five-year-old enjoyed a fantastic time of things in 2011, registering victories on the northern circuit at Ripon, Redcar, Thirsk and Carlisle.
She suffered defeat on her final appearance of the year at Newmarket, but a return to her home county of Yorkshire on her seasonal return yielded a return the winner's enclosure.
James Sullivan rode a confident race on the 12-1 chance, sitting towards the rear before creeping closer rounding the turn for home.
Easy Terms picked up well once the gaps came in the straight to beat Cape Safari by a length and three-quarters.
"I'm thrilled to bits with her as I wasn't sure how she'd handle the ground," said Tuer.
"It was her first run of the year, but she's done it well.
"A lot of credit has to go to the jockey as he did a great job. He held on to her as he knew how well she was going and brought her through late.
"She'd been working well at home, but we weren't sure what to expect.
"We'll see what the handicapper does now, but we might have to look at a Listed race."
Another winner surely destined for better things is the Luca Cumani-trained Commitment, who stamped his class on the totepool Supports The NRC/British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes.
The 2-1 chance had run fourth in a couple of very warm juvenile events last year and confirmed that promise on his comeback, showing a smart change of gear in the heavy ground to score by a length and a half in the hands of Kieren Fallon.
Alex Smith, representing winning owners Highclere Thoroughbred Racing, said: "He ran very promisingly in his maidens last year and Luca had been very happy with his work up until today.
"He's a horse who we thought would get a trip this year and he's handled what is pretty desperate ground today really well.
"Kieren was very happy with him and he's a horse I think we might have a bit of fun with this year."
Declan Carroll's Lastchancelucas was a 100-1 winning debutant in the williamhill.com/British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden - but it was no surprise to his owner-breeder Chris Stephenson.
"It was expected. I told everybody he wasn't 100-1 chance on the way he's been working, but nobody would believe me," he told Racing UK.
"He has a big heart, he's been well trained and well brought up.
"The owner had a lot of shillings on!"
Wiseman's Diamond (10-1) made every yard of the running in the Betfred Supports The NRC Handicap, while 7-2 joint-favourite Eshaab was a narrow winner of the BetVictor Handicap for Ed Dunlop.
The Mick Channon-trained Gabrial's Bounty (9-2) claimed top honours in the concluding coral.co.uk Handicap.
