Toner D'Oudairies made it two wins on the bounce in the Martin Reilly Motors Hyundai i40 Chase at Sligo.

Gordon Elliott's charge, who made the frame at last year's Cheltenham Festival, scored at Listowel last month, but was still sent off the 7-4 second-favourite, behind Go All The Way.

The market leader dictated terms to suit himself, but Toner D'Oudairies was quicker at the third-last and didn't have to work too hard to put four lengths between himself and Go All The Way at the line.

His jockey Davy Russell looked like following up when Kandinski approached the last travelling much better than Coolking (7-1) in the Sligo IT Student Day At Sligo Beginners Chase, but he was outbattled on the run to the line and went down by two and three-quarter lengths.

Dressedtothenines could manage only third on her introduction to fences in the www.countysligoraces.com Mares Beginners Chase.

A Grade Two winner over timber, Eddie Harty's even-money favourite closed up to challenge approaching the second-last, but she was sticky there and then faded disappointingly to finish behind Katys Girl (14-1), who fended off Littletown Lass by a couple of lengths.

Whosaidso (10-1) made a successful reappearance in the St Angela's College Sligo Student Day At Sligo Races Handicap Chase, while Muzak completed a hat-trick with a gritty display in the Foley's Bar & Off Licence Handicap Chase.

The John Monroe-trained grey was 15lb higher than when his winning spree began but he took up the running after jumping three out and stuck his neck out to deny Sean Airgead as a 9-2 chance.

Indian Outlook (9-2) made every post a winning one on his first crack at the larger obstacles in the Frank O'Beirne Memorial Beginners Chase, making all the running before keeping something in reserve to kick again when market leader Back Off Mate challenged at the last.
