Out the back in the early stages he ran on strongly coming through the field to pick up the leader Ballymac Trudi at the last bend and he then drew five lengths clear to the line from Scart Jim.

Droopys Emmy trained by John Linehan for Sean Dunphy was another to make all in an A2 550 stopping the clock in 28.98. 

In front from traps she saw the trip out well coming home with a length and a half to spare over Rosstemple Chad.
