Looks adequate and has some cushion for start up, at just over 2 bucks it wouldn't be a tragedy to burn it up.

Edit: That capacitor is soldered in a strange way but would bend out of the way for the units mounting.

It's only a little questionable, generally the consideration for motor start up is about 300% although this can range drastically sometimes.
I'd go for it and just watch the temperatures of the board, that capacitor could make a mess if it pops. Use a project box for your electronics to avoid the potential mess or at least minimize it.

I'd try the one you've found, like I said at that cost it isn't going to be a tragedy if it burns up.
