Troytown win for Noel Meade

Sean Flanagan clears the last on the way to winning the Troytown with Tout Est Permis

Castletown trainer Noel Meade won the Troytown at Navan today for the first time since Heist landed the big race back in 1997.

Sean Flanagan was on board the Meade-trained Tout Est Permis which made it two wins from two since joining the team at Tu Va Stables.

Gordon Elliott's bid to win the Troytown for a fifth successive year was foiled with Out Sam in fifth the best of his 11 starters.

"I was very sweet on him and he worked a bomb the other day. I felt if we just keep him together now until Sunday he’ll win," stated Meade.


Meath winners also featured in other races with Robbie Power having a double for Jessica Harrington (who had three winners) while Gordon Elliott and Davy Russell took the opener.

Kilmessan trainer Matthew Smith was also on the mark when Warnaq won a handicap hurdle with Ashbourne jockey Andrew Lynch on board.


Emily Davis from Lismullen won the Most Stylish Lady award. 

Emily wore an Italian designed trilby, Zara skirt, a grey coat with fur trim and a Coach bag and scooped an €800 spending spree for Navan Town Centre 
and a luxurious weekend break for two in the Great National Ballykisteen Golf Hotel in Co. Tipperary (courtesy of Cusack Hotel Group).
