It was a day to remember for Robert Tyner and Philip Enright who landed a hat-trick at Clonmel.

Who Let De Dogsout got things started when she broke her duck in the opening Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden Hurdle to win by one and a half-lengths.

The €340,000 favourite, Sizing Coal, led the way but was out-jumped by the 8-1 shot at the second-last and was always being held despite a slight error from the winner at the final flight.

Former point winner Tooreen (6-1) relished the step up to three miles in the Comeragh Handicap Hurdle.

The winner had momentarily looked under pressure in front, but proved impossible to pass and was more dominant than the three and three-quarter-length margin of victory suggests.

The three-timer was brought up under a similarly enterprising front-running ride on Kandinski (4-1), who stole a march on his rivals before taking a breather and kicking for home to win by 17 lengths.

More Madness ran out a gutsy winner of the Martinstown Opportunity Handicap Chase.

Terence O'Brien's runner passed long-time leader Hidden Crack turning for home but looked in trouble as Mister First cruised into contention under a confident Ben Dalton.

However, the latter found little for pressure and had to settle for second best as the winner (6-1) kept pulling out more to prevail by half a length.

Cheap As Chips surprised a few people when benefitting from a return to hurdles in the Carrick-On-Suir Mares Handicap Hurdle.

Philip Rothwell's mare had shown moderate form which led to her being sent off a odds of 33-1, but couldn't have done it more impressively when winning by 10 lengths.

Lord Scoundrel (11-8fav) broke the hoodoo of four successive second place finishes with victory in the closing Ardfinnan INH Flat Race.

The 62,000-euro purchase had been unfortunate to date but showed plenty of heart to win by three-quarters of a length from Golan Dancer.
