Denis Hogan took the training honours at Kilbeggan where he combined with jockey Brian Cawley for a 535/1 double.

The Hogan-Cawley brace was kickstarted by the success of 66/1 outsider Mysticaltou in the opening maiden hurdle.

Hogan's debutante Mysticaltou held a decent advantage going to two out and while the fancied Tiger Trek tried to close the gap, Cawley's mount kept to score by a length and three-quarters.

The young jockey employed different tactics to secure his second winner as he held up Dedoctorsdaughter in the Bloomfields House Hotel Handicap Chase, but Hogan's 7/1 made steady progress in the last half-mile to career past favourite Kanesh on the run-down to the final fence before bounding seven and a half lengths clear

Philip Fenton enjoyed a timely boost to his fortunes when Desertmore Stream following up his Galway Festival success in the Kilbeggan Patrons Club Hurdle.

The Michael O'Leary-owned six-year-old was always travelling well for Brian O'Connell who earlier initiated a double on Garrett Power's Lilly The Lioness.
