The final day of Killarney's May meeting kicks off at 5.15 with the O'Connor O'Shea Solicitors Novice Chase, which sees You Must Know Me return to novice company after a fine effort at Aintree.

Henry De Bromhead's charge belied his inexperience over fences when finishing sixth in the Topham over the daunting National obstacles, and is miles clear of his nearest rival Sammy Black on official figures.

De Bromhead also saddles Tisamystery in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Beginners Chase, though Willie Mullins' Midnight Game is an interesting recruit to the chasing ranks, having chased home stablemate Un De Sceaus in a Grade Two over timber three starts ago.

Hospital got up late to score over timber at Limerick last time and could go well over the larger obstacles in the Killarney Outlook Publications Handicap Chase, though Ballinrobe scorer Imperial Joey was hugely impressive on that occasion and is certain to make this a real test.

Dermot Weld's good form at the start of the Flat season shows no signs of abating and he runs Lanyard in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Median Auction Race.

The filly has ground to make up with Colour Blue on official ratings, though, and Willie McCreery's filly was not far away at Gowran last time, while the once-raced Pit Stop and Ger Lyons' Mansuri add further spice.

Kevin Prendergast was among the winners on Sunday at Leopardstown and will be hopeful Rathealy can follow up a recent success in the Live The Dream With The Tote Handicap, though Aidan O'Brien's The Islander will be out to atone for a poor effort in Listed company now dropped in grade.

O'Brien locks horns with Mullins in the concluding www.killarneyraces.ie Race, as the Ballydoyle filly takes a big step up in distance against Arctic Fire, a winner at the Punchestown Festival for Ireland's champion jumps trainer.
