Fairyhouse: Bust Out wins after lengthy absence.

Bust Out, off the track since almost upsetting Istabraq at Leopardstown a year ago, was flattered by his 25-length winning margin in the shorter event as he was involved in a rousing battle with Canary Wharf when that rival hit the last hard and fell, leaving Jessica Harrington's six-year-old clear.

Two fences earlier two other possible dangers were removed when Bust Out's stablemate, Soltero, and I Got It, both of whom were in contention, fell.

Unfortunately, Canary Wharf, who won two bumpers and a novice hurdle, fractured an elbow and had to be put down.

Harrington said: "If Bust Out comes out of the race in good nick he'll run in the Denny Gold Medal Chase at Leopardstown."

Geraghty completed his treble aboard Risetothe-occasion in the three-mile handicap hurdle. Trained in Piltown County Kilkenny by Michael Butler, the four-length winner was returned at 7-1 after 14-1 had been taken in the morning.
