Zabana (11-8 fav) got his career back on track when proving a class apart in the Gowran Park Thanks To All Our Customers In 2016 Chase.

The Punchestown Festival hero failed to shine on his Down Royal reappearance three weeks ago but was a different proposition here, travelling powerfully throughout under Davy Russell before effectively putting the race to bed when taking over three fences from home.

Kitten Rock finished well for second but was still a length and a half in arrears at the line.

Bellshill barely had to break sweat in order to make his first start over fences a winning one in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Beginners Chase.

The dual Grade One winning hurdler sat off the strong gallop set by Balko Des Flos in the early stages but jockey Ruby Walsh always cut a confident figure aboard the 2-5 market leader.

Bellshill began to close up on the leader in the back straight and took over with a bold leap at the second last before cruising clear by ten lengths.

Invitation Only (1-4 fav) went some way to justifying his tall reputation when making a successful start over hurdles in the Race That Stops A County Thyestes Jan 26th 2017 Maiden Hurdle.

Unbeaten in a pair of bumpers last season, the son at Flemensfirth wasn't always foot perfect at his obstacles but drew away from Barra after the last to win by two and three quarter lengths.

Falls from a couple of the leading protagonists left the way clear for Champagne Pat (10-1) to land the 3-Y-O Maiden Hurdle by two lengths while Light That (16-1) just got the better of Sound Money by a head in the Join Gowran Park Golf Club for 499 Euro Novice Hurdle.

Catcheragain (5-4 fav) had to work hard to complete a quickfire double in the Gowran Park Racing Club Membership 2017 For 125 Euro Mares Handicap Hurdle but she had half a length in hand over Adreamstillalive as they passed the post.
