Sent off the even-money favourite, the five-year-old moved into the lead after the second-last and held the renewed challenge of Faltering Fullback by half a length.

Lucky William (8/11 fav) took the beginners chase for the father and son team of Tom and Bryan Cooper by nine lengths.

Owega Star (7/1) made his first start over hurdles a winning one in the opening maiden hurdle in the hands of Andrew Leigh. Peter Fahey's four-year-old had 11/4 joint-favourite Run With The Wind to contend with from the second-last, but soon got on top to score by three and three quarter lengths.

Ardglen (2/1 fav) led all the way under Brian Hayes to win the Charlie Chute Memorial Handicap Chase by 16 lengths for in-form John 'Shark' Hanlon.
