BALLINROBE: Ryan doubles up at 75-1.
St Barts (Barry Geraghty) set the ball rolling when jumping past the trail-blazing Jodesi at the last to take the Ballinrobe Water Towers Beginners Chase.
Jason Titley was aboard Mr Ventura who made virtually all in the Ballinrobe Race Committee Maiden Hurdle, quickening clear between the final two flights to beat Mahore River Lady by 12 lengths.
Sixteen-year-old Wayne Lordan partnered his fourth winner, and first of the new Flat campaign, when producing the Martin O'Toole-trained Wire Man to lead at the furlong pole for a three-length success in the Flannerys Bar & Restaurant Handicap.
Jason Behan also opened his account for the season when sending Bypharbeanri to the front approaching the home bend and holding Cottage Lord by a length in the Rathcarren Handicap.
The absence of Creux Noir and Jordan's Ridge-due to the change in ground (officially soft)-ensured Taisce was a warm order in the Claremorris Maiden, and the evens favourite gained a convincing victory.
Empor Star (Jason Maguire) denied Bachelors Bar by a head in the handicap hurdle, while the Aidan Fitzgerald-partnered Deirdres Pet beat the odds- on Ben Cohan in the bumper.
