The Kevin Prendergast-trained Daymooma proved last month's Fairyhouse effort all wrong with victory in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Handicap at Roscommon.

The Ballinrobe maiden scorer failed to make any sort of impact on her handicap debut in July but returned an altogether different propostion, bursting to the lead around a furlong out having been held near the back through the early exchanges.

Chris Hayes kept the 10-1 chance up to her work once challenged and she stayed on really well to hold Senyuman by a neck.

Billboard (5-1) advertised his abilities with success in the opening Irish Stallion Farms EBF Median Auction Maiden.

Jessica Harrington's charge had faced daunting tasks behind Sir John Hawkins and Australia in his first couple of starts at the Curragh but showed the benefit of experience to emerge between rivals.

Fran Berry's mount pounced on Cant'helpbelieving deep inside the final furlong to claim a half-length verdict.

Ger Lyons and promising apprentice rider Colin Keane combined to great effect yet again with Angela's Dream in the I.F.A. Race Day Handicap.

The 14-1 chance sat behind pacesetters Target Acquired and Fastidious before moving to the head of affairs with around a furlong and a half left to race.

Eventual runner-up He's Hot Rhythm came from the pack to give chase but the winner had two lengths to spare passing the post.

Kims Dream completed a hat-trick in the Keen Print Handicap.

Noel Dooly's winner has been in sparkling form since switching back to the level after a spell over hurdles and evidently gets on very well with Shane Gray.

The in-form mare had to settle for a slot in mid-pack from her wide draw but Gray ultimately timed his run to perfection on the 7-4 favourite, who battled bravely to beat Timjoe by half a length.
