Truly Delightful produced an admiral front-running display to land the Live The Dream With Tote Rated Race at Ballinrobe.

Tom Cleary's 5-1 chance gave her all for Rory Cleary, keeping to the rail and fending off numerous challengers, including favourite Que Sera Sera, who was on terms on the home bend but could not get passed, going down by three-quarters of a length.

Aidan O'Brien's Bazaar proved too strong for his rivals in the Live The Dream With Tote Maiden.

Joseph O'Brien was always to the fore on the 4-9 favourite, and after striking for home well over a furlong out, he never looked back.

What Lies Ahead just held on to land the 16,095 Average Pick 6 Dividend Maiden.

Willie McCreery's 9-2 chance looked to have the race in safe-keeping when Wayne Lordan pushed her clear on the home turn, but Dancingwithangels charged home and looked to be getting up, but was a short-head behind on the nod.

An enterprising ride from Ian Queally gave Hangar Five victory in the 1,760 Average Jackpot Dividend Apprentice Handicap.

Sweeping into the lead on the home turn, the 14-1 chance was kicked clear and though favourite Byron Beauty made up some ground late on, she was still a length and three-quarters down at the line.

Res Ipsa Loquitur had been a shade disappointing in the past, but she made no mistake in the Bet Online At thetote.com Mares Maiden Hurdle under Brian O'Connell.

Those who backed her into 7-2 evidently felt she could make it ninth time lucky, and they were proved right, as she eased to a length and three-quarter success over Silverpockets.

Denis Hogan trained and rode Royal Shot (7-1) to an easy victory in the Tote Trifecta Rollover Handicap Hurdle.
