Flemenstar has gone up five pounds in the ratings to a mark of 158 after his easy win in the Fortria Chase at Navan yesterday.

The Peter Casey trained gelding took the Grade 2 by seven lengths from Big Zeb (rated 159) and the handicapper was clearly impressed by his performance.

Whatuthink is now rated 149 over hurdles, up eight pounds, after his shock win over Voler La Vedette in the Lismullen Hurdle also at Navan.

Dont Tell Pa has gone up eleven pounds to a rating of 113, after he easily completed his hat-trick of wins at Limerick yesterday for the Mangan's.

The Jessica Harrington trained Celtic Cailin finished a fine third in the 'For Auction' Novice Hurdle behind Sizing Rio at Navan and she has been risen seven pounds to a rating of 117 as a result.

Other horses to receive significant hikes after the weekends racing are Saoirse Dun up eleven to 95, Ballyfinboy up seven to 90 and A Decent Excuse up nine to 110.
