Toufan Express, with Fran Berry aboard giving a show of riding expertise, to win the big event on the second last day of the Galway Festival, the Low Low Handicap.
Biding his time sitting to the back of the field at times during the seven furlong event, Berry still had many starters in front of him with just a furlong or so to go, as he moved up widely on the outside and swiftly got his mount over the line for a half-length victory over Ask Jack.
Winning trainer Adrian McGuinness said, "I was afraid the ground would be a bit lively for him.
"Fran said he was not liking it early on, but as he started going past horses he enjoyed it.
"He won a Premier handicap at the Curragh last year and I felt he was capable of winning another big pot.
"He's in again at Leopardstown on Thursday, so we'll see how he comes out of this."
