Sean Flanagan was seen at his very best when guiding Icelip (14-1) to victory in the feature race at Tramore, the Win Big With Tote Jackpot Races 3-6 Handicap Hurdle.

Flanagan was happy to bide his time in the early exchanges but always cut a confident figure and delivered his mount to perfection, the pair taking over approaching the final hurdle before holding off the persistent challenge of Tintown Robin by three quarters of a length.

Racegoers were treated to another fine piece of race riding when Adrian Lynch and Prince Garyantle (10-1) ran their rivals ragged from the front in the Join thetote.com For Up To 100 Euro Bonus Handicap Hurdle.

Lynch was quick to send his mount into the lead and a series of excellent jumps saw him build up a handy advantage by the halfway mark.

However, it was after the third last when Lynch turned the screw and although plenty in behind tried to raise a challenge, Prince Garyantle was well in control and recorded an impressive ten length success.

Ineffable (7-1) made a successful return to jumping when opening his account over hurdles in the Win Big With Tote Pick 6 Maiden Hurdle.

Always handily placed, he locked horns with market-leader Papal Motel approaching the final flight before forging a length and a half clear on the run-in.

There was a little bit of a turn up in the Play Colossus Pools At thetote.com Maiden Hurdle as Kilbarry Cushty wore down the gallant Nicaragua to land the spoils.

The latter gave it a real go from the front but could never shake off the attentions of the 20-1 victor who gradually got on top in the closing stages to oblige by a length.

Gordon Elliott got on the board when Presenting Julio (9-4 fav) landed the Win Big With Tote Handicap Chase by six lengths while the Follow @thetote.com On Twitter Hunters Chase went the way of 9-10 favourite Dimple.
