Long odds-on favourite Katchy Lady was forced to pull out all the stops to land the opening Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden at Tipperary.
Sent off at 1-3 to land the three-runner event following a pleasing debut fourth at Cork, Paddy Prendergast's charge flashed past the post with her two rivals either side of her, but edged the verdict over Chips Are Down after a photo was required.
Fit from three recent runs at Dundalk, the 5-1 chance scored with a comfortable three-quarters-of-a-length in hand.
The first of the jumps action saw Mobile Sizer (5-1) open his account at the second time of asking in division one of the Follow @Tipperaryraces On Twitter Maiden Hurdle.
The second instalment produced an impressive winner in the shape of Pageboy.
A rare runner over obstacles for David Wachman, the four-year-old son of Galileo built on last month's Gowran sixth in no uncertain terms.
The point-to-point winner relished a move up to three miles and after storming clear three flights from the finish, he was eased down to beat favourite Shrapnel by 11 lenghts.
