Flame Of Eire (11/2) won the Pharmacy Store Ireland Handicap for father and son combination Andy and Andrew Slattery.

Sixth on handicap debut at Tipperary, the daughter of Mehmas tracked the leaders and challenged from early in the straight. She led over a furlong out and kept on well to repel Clarinbridge by three parts of a length with Rockbury Lad another length and three quarters back in third.

Winning trainer Andy Slattery said: "I don't know what happened the last day but she broke badly and was out the back.

"She is in at Killarney on Tuesday but we might wait until Galway. She is a good sized filly and I think she'll be a nice four year old and will keep improving.

"The Harneys (owners) bred her and they had Fiach McHugh with me but he has gone to Hong Kong now - it is grand to have another one for them."
