The 10-year-old bounced back from a disappointing run at Fairyhouse to easily land this Listed race in testing conditions. Shane Jackson always had the 11/2 shot in a handy position as Tom The Traveller set the pace.

After Aran Concerto fell at the eighth last fence, Florida Express saw off the challenge of 15/8 favourite Tinakellylad to ease home from four out.

Philip Fenton's Woodbine Willie (5/4) shed his maiden tag over fences at the fourth attempt when taking the Beginners Chase by a neck from Spring The Que.

Tommy Stack's Lolly For Dolly proved a most appropriately named winner when justifying support (from 6/1 to 7/4) by impressively landing the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden by seven lengths, under Wayne Lordan, from Anaverna.

Stack -- the clear leading trainer with seven winners this season -- said: "We hope that she'll make into a stakes filly."

Musical Review completed a double for Lordan by taking the Easter Handicap by two lengths.
