Tut Tut came home strongest to win the premier nursery handicap over a mile in Listowel.

She represented a very in-form Jessica Harrington and raced almost on the pace set by Snapius.

The pair got involved in a tussle entering the home straight with Tut Tut ridden by Shane Foley to take a narrow lead approaching the final furlong.

The leader increased her margin in the closing stages as she went on by a hard-fought length at 5/2. Capitulation did some good late work to grab second at 7/2.

Foley said: "She is a grand filly who was a little fresh and keen the last day at the Curragh but the key to her is slow ground. She enjoys it and could win again on soft.

"She has progressed well, is after getting big and strong and is a filly that you could see maybe competing in a little trial early doors next year on soft ground."

Tut Tut was winning for the second time having shed her maiden tag over seven furlongs at Leopardstown in August.
