Home By The Lee (7/2 favourite) made a winning debut for Joseph O'Brien and Tom Hamilton by a length and a half in the bumper at Killarney.

The Fame And Glory gelding saw off Pipers Meadow (4/1) with Flash De Touzaine showing ability in third, on debut, at 7/1.

Tom Hamilton said: “I won on Beautiful Citi (full-sister) at Clonmel and then here, and she was a lovely filly.

"This lad is a lovely big horse but he’s still a big baby, and whatever he does in this campaign is going to be a big bonus. He’s a good-moving horse and I was very happy with him.”

Home By The Lee gave Joseph O'Brien an across-the-card double as King's Vow also scored in Leopardstown.
