Noel Meade enjoyed a big victory at his local track, as Tout Est Permis stormed home in the Ladbrokes Troytown Handicap Chase at Navan.

A field of 24 lined-up for this three-mile chase.

Mr Diablo and Raz De Maree took the field over the first with Kylecrue and Swing Bridge coming to help set the pace over the first three fences, with Rogue Angel and General Principle and Young Turk also prominent.

At the fourth, Kylecrue held a narrow lead from Swing Bridge and Arkwrisht, while Squouateur was already tailing off.

Kylecrue and Rogue Angel took the field into the home straight for the first time, with Arkwrisht with these.

With a circuit to race, Mr Diablo went back to the front from Rogue Angel and General Principle, with Kylecrue taking a breather to the inside and then Arkwrisht, Swing Bridge and Young Turk.

Down the back, Mr Diablo and Rogue Angel led, while Arkwrisht made a jolting error and lost all chance.

Rogue Angel went on five from home from Mr Diablo, while Arkwrisht was pulled up.

Four out, Rogue Angel and Mr Diablo still vied for the lead and the latter moved on, with General Principle making ground as they swung for home.

Three from home, Mr Diablo touched down in front of Tout Est Permis, with Kylecrue and Grand Partner next.

Mr Diablo led at the second last but Tout Est Permis came to lead at the last, drawing away.

A good jump sealed victory for Sean Flanagan, winning on Tout Est Permis by about five lengths from Mr Diablo, with Magic Of Light third and then Grand Partner and Out Sam.

Local trainer Noel Meade had last won the Troytown in 1997 with Heist.
