The featured coopsuperstores.ie Handicap Chase (Grade B) produced a good finish with the two mares in the field, Abbey Magic (3/1 fav) and last year’s winner Lakemilan (5/1), fighting it out from the second last.

The former kept on best from the last to score by a length and three quarters, with Ornua (8/1) best of the rest back in third.

The Henry de Bromhead-trained winner was successful in her first three races over fences in 2018 before injury intervened, and she was off nearly two years before coming back with a good run behind stablemate Visioman at Kilbeggan last month.

Winning rider Rachael Blackmore said: "The owners have had to be patient as she had a setback so it is great to get her back in the winners' enclosure again.

"She is very honest and she is very good to jump. I'm not sure what the plan is for her but it was great to get that big-race win today; fair play to the owners for being patient."
