Say opened her account at the third attempt with a runaway victory in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden at Cork.

Joseph O'Brien never had a moment's worry on the 1-6 favourite, trained by his father Aidan, and she simply pulled further and further clear, beating Silky Pyrus by nine lengths.

Ghaamer opened his account at the third attempt with an accomplished display from the front in the Follow Us On Facebook Maiden.

Pat Smullen was happy to bowl along in front on the 1-3 favourite and though Point Piper made sure he had to work for the win, Ghaamer came home two and a quarter lengths in front.

Cape Of Approval shrugged off a welter burden to land the Corkracecourse.ie Race for Tommy Stack.

Favourite Parliament Square cut out the early running, but once Wayne Lordan pushed the 2-1 winner into the lead on the home straight, the race was never in doubt, with Bracing breeze plugging on for third, a length and three-quarters back.

The Four Elms produced a taking effort to land the valuable Follow corkracecourse On Twitter Handicap.

Held up off the pace by Connor King, the 11-4 chance swept into the lead over a furlong out and went on to beat Gunner Lindley by two lengths.

Willie McCreery continued his rich vein of form when September Lily stayed on well to land the first division of the Social package Handicap.

Shane Kelly was on board the 6-4 favourite as she made it four wins in a week for McCreery, finishing her race well to beat Great Ability by two and a quarter lengths.

The second division produced a stunning effort from Conor O'Dwyer's College Boy.

Out with the washing on four previous starts on the level, the 10-1 chance burst through a gap a furlong out and sped clear under Fran Berry, eventually recording a two and a half-length verdict over Cookie Crumbles.
