Dysart Diamond was a determined winner of the Listed Frontline Security Grabel Mares Hurdle under Bryan Cooper at Punchestown.

The Willie Mullins-trained chestnut has run well in handicap contests from summer through to the autumn and successfully made the step up in grade to score by half a length from Peter Fahey's Royal Kahala, having started at 7-2.

Declan Queally duo Western Victory and The Getaway Star were third and fourth respectively, with Henry de Bromhead's Dawn Run winner Telmesomethinggirl fifth as the 3-1 favourite.

"I'm delighted with how well she's improved through the season to come from a handicapper up to win a Listed race," Mullins said of his mare.

"She likes goodish ground and she's getting nice ground here today. I'm sure once we get winter ground it won't suit, she'll probably get nice ground in Leopardstown."

The three-mile pigsback.com Risk Of Thunder Chase, run over the cross-country course, was won by Derek O'Connor and Enda Bolger's 5-4 favourite Shady Operator.

The eight-year-old ran prominently and was ultimately a comfortable winner, coming home seven lengths ahead of stablemate Midnight Maestro in an effort that may pave the way for a trip to Cheltenham at the end of the year.

De Bromhead's Fully Charged may be headed to Leopardstown at Christmas after his victory under Hugh Morgan in the Ryans Cleaning Handicap Chase.

Priced at 4-1, the grey followed up a Gowran Park victory in October with another over an increased trip, this time prevailing by a neck from Gavin Cromwell's Alfa Mix.
