Happy Clapper has held on to win the $1 million Epsom Handicap at Randwick and give veteran trainer Pat Webster his first Group One victory.

The favourite beat Tom Melbourne by three-quarters of a length after the Chris Waller-trained gelding made a late surge in Saturday's 1600m feature race. Snitzson came third.

"It is well done. He deserved it ... We've had 16 group winners and this is our first Group One," Webster said.
