Having shed 3lb since disappointing at Galway, the three-year-old colt revelled in a ding-dong battle with The Seanachie rounding the bend.

Pat Shanahan's mount won that argument, and then kept on manfully to tidily hold off Kims Dream by a neck.

Much-vaunted jockey Keagan Latham secured his first Ballinrobe success when Anna Montana (6/1) struck in the Flannery's Bistro Claiming Race.

Ger Lyons' charge enjoyed a dream run along the far rail and kept on resolutely close home to score by three lengths.

Regal Obligation (8/1) will revert to hurdling after her feisty success in the Ballinrobe Musical Society All-Ireland Winners Handicap.

Tom Hogan's dual-purpose campaigner made most of the running in the hands of Wayne Lordan and prevailed by a neck from the fast-finishing Torina.

Golden Nugget (8/1) atoned for a lacklustre run at Roscommon last time when taking the Costello McDermott Handicap.
