Jimmy and Patrick Mangan are having a Listowel 2012 to remember and well-backed favourite Truckin All Night (3s into 9/4) landed the concluding Captain Christy Maiden Hurdle for the Conna father and son team.

The victor, successful in point-to-point and bumper company previously, dictated from the front-end and he was a length and three parts too strong for Prince Chaparral from the back of the last.

The younger Mangan returned from a spell on the sidelines when giving Fair Dilemma a similar ride to score in a beginners chase here on Sunday.

Jimmy said: "I'm delighted for the owners (the Conna Enclosure Syndicate) and it's brilliant for Paddy.

"He had his cruciate done in Dublin and they done a brilliant job on him.

"He'll stay hurdling if he's not sold. The owners are selling people.

"He had the form to win that.

"I love Listowel. We've had great luck here down through the years. Fair Dilemma will run here again on Saturday." (DM & EM)

Wests awake at Listowel

His famous brother Hunt Ball has shown himself to be a hardy type at a higher level and though Western Promise is currently plying his trade in 0 to 102 company, the family trait of resolute performance came to the fore when he landed the Kerry Petroleum Handicap Chase at Listowel.
