Baily Green took his form to a new level with a fine jumping display in the Grade 3 Kilbegnet EBF Novice Chase at Roscommon.

Mouse Morris' gelding was lining up on a five-timer, having enjoyed wins over both hurdles and fences, and the switch back to the larger obstacles brought about further improvement in the six-year-old.

Making the running at a good clip under David Casey, the 2-1 shot was still travelling within himself when favourite Dylan Ross crashed out down the back stright.

Casey's mount sauntered clear of the rest of the field with the minimum of fuss and pulled 18 lengths away from runner-up House Rules.

Busty Brown (4-5 favourite) galloped his rivals into submission on his first outing for Noel Meade in the On Course Vets Maiden Hurdle.

Paul Carberry took it up around three from the finish and never looked in much danger.

Second spot went to Champagne Agent, but he was six and a half lengths down.

Beyond Thankful (9-4), trained by Jim Bolger and ridden by Kevin Manning, made a race-winning move over a furlong out which wrapped up the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden in a matter of strides.

Tommy Stack's Angels Guard Thee ran away with the www.roscommonracecourse.ie Fillies Maiden in fine style.

After tracking Josie S And B, Wayne Lordan sent the 7-4 favourite into a clear lead passing the two-pole and he stayed on strongly to beat Seducing by 14 lengths.

Hurricane Twister sprang a 22-1 surprise in the Follow Roscommon On Facebook Handicap.

Sent straight to the front by Gary Phillips, the gelded son of Captain Rio scooted clear and held on by a comfortable three and a quarter-lengths from Balrath Hope.

The 11-year-old Hide The Evidence rolled back the clock with a 19-length victory under Jonathon Killahena in the Five Euros Admission At Roscommon On October 15th Apprentice Handicap, while the Oran INH Flat Race went to the Dessie Hughes-trained Art Of Logistics.
