Usa took advantage of Alderwood's withdrawal from the conditions chase at Roscommon last night to score under Barry Geraghty for Stephen Mahon.

Tom Mullins' dual Cheltenham Festival hero defected due to changing conditions, leaving the seven-year-old son of Bertolini to seal the deal by four and three parts of a length from Toostrong. Realt Dubh (15/8 favourite) fell at the last but was remounted to take third.

Harry Rogers recorded his first winner of the season as Irish Reel took a 20/1 surprise victory in the Budweiser Handicap, scoring under Colm O'Donoghue.

Meanwhile, Graham Lee continued a tremendous turf season with a 127/1 treble at Ayr on Thecornishcowboy, Monel and Goninodaethat.

The Grand National-winning jockey has never looked back since switching to the Flat two years ago and is second in the jockeys' title race behind Ryan Moore with 45 winners.

Lee struck first on Thecornishcowboy (11/8 favourite), which defied top weight in the Jacqui Maloney 60th Birthday Celebration Handicap to beat 80/1 shot Thackeray by a length.

Lee then kept Monel (5/1) up to his work to defeat Tortoise by three-quarters of a length in division one of the Racing UK Free 1 Month Trial Handicap.

Goninodaethat (8/1) completed Lee's day when rallying to regain the lead from Viking Warrior and take division two by a length.

There was an Irish triumph in the concluding race when Kildare-based Adrian Keatley sent out Carraroe Flyer (9/2) to collect in the hands of 7lb claimer Josh Doyle.
