Jockeys Mark Walsh and Paul Townend shared the honours at Ballinrobe, where both enjoyed doubles.

Walsh was the first to complete his brace as he followed up his smooth success in the opener aboard Rae's Creek by landing the featured McGrath Limestone Works Ltd. Handicap Hurdle on Whatever It Takes.

Trained by Niall Madden, Whatever It Takes was sent off the 10/3 second favourite and took up the lead after the second last. The JP McManus-owned gelding held off market leader I C Gold to win by two and three-quarter lengths.

Townend initiated his double aboard the Tom Mullins-trained Grand Partner, which overcame a mistake at the last to beat War Of The Pennys in the novice hurdle.

The Cork rider then teamed up with Garrett Power to claim the McWilliam Park Hotel Handicap Hurdle on 8/1 shot Curragh Golan.

Most impressive winner of the card was Peter Fahey's Alton Bay, which ran away from favourite Little Rocky to take the Mayo News Maiden Hurdle in the hands of JJ Burke.
