Summerhill jockey Robbie Colgan is the man in form at the moment and tonight at Ballinrobe he was on the mark with a 50/1 winner for former Meath-based trainer Stephen Mahon.

On Sunday at the Curragh Robbie partnered a 33/1 two-year-old winner over seven furlongs for Sheila Lavery and tonight he showed his versatility with a winner over fences at the Mayo track.

Rocky Court won by more than a length from the Willie Mullins-trained favourite Listen Dear.

Rachael Blackmore enjoyed her first winner for Castletown trainer Noel Meade with Kamil in a beginners' chase at Ballinrobe tonight.

"I'm just delighted to ride a winner for Noel Meade — it's a great privilege," she commented as she continues to set the pace in the race for the NH jockeys' title.

Gordon Elliott was also in the winners' enclosure with Icario which got the better of the Des McDonogh-trained Hearts Are Trumps.
