Liam Burke's useful chaser Ordinary Man capitalised on a comparatively lenient timber rating with a clear-cut victory in the Tramore Racecourse 2012 Special Recognition Award Handicap Hurdle.

Shay Barry kept a wide berth throughout on the 7-1 shot, who hit the deck at Listowel on his previous outing, but he kept out of trouble up front and never looked like being caught en route to registering an eight-length verdict.

Barry doubled up when Days Ahead (5-1) stuck his neck out to land the tramoreraces On Twitter Beginners Chase.

Eoin Coyle's five-year-old touched down over two out disputing the lead with the front-running The Folkes Choice and held the game rally of that opponent to atone for last month's Downpatrick tumble.

Mags and Danny Mullins teamed up successfully in the www.tramore-racecourse.com Maiden Hurdle with Stormy Oscar.

The 7-2 joint-favourite had been found wanting in handicap company of late, but relished having his sights lowered and stayed on well to beat Cool Klan by a neck.

Mullins was on board the gambled-on Sweet Sylvia in the Tramore Racecourse On Facebook Handicap, and gave her every chance with a bold front-running ride.

She resisted the challenge of Do The Bookies, but couldn't fend off Dont Tell Pa (5-1), who swept past under Jane Mangan.

Our Girl Lucy (5-1) overcame a slightly awkward leap at the last to maintain her solid level of consistency, keeping Ferris Bueller a length at bay in the Tramore Racecourse Centenary Celebrations Beginners Chase.

Kilmurry Kid overcame a lengthy absence to win the Tramore Racecourse 1912-2012 Centenary Handicap Chase.

John Long's 7-1 shot swished his tail enough after taking it up rounding the turn for home but, to his credit, he found plenty for pressure and crossed the line with a length and three-quarters in hand of Big Jemmy.
