Graham Lee rode Thorntoun Care (11/4 fav) to win for Jim Goldie in the one mile five furlong handicap and followed up with Push Me (5/4 fav) to win the mile handicap for in form Borders trainer Iain Jardine.
The well-established trainer-jockey team of Mark Johnston and Joe Fanning combined to win the opening maiden with Polarisation, a 5/6 chance.
