James Nash's Your Busy claimed an impressive win at Killarney

Your Busy jumped his rivals into submission to land the McSweeney Arms Hotel Killarney National Handicap Chase on the second day of Killarney's May meeting.

James Nash's charge was out in front for much of the race and had most of his rivals off the bridle well before the third last.

Love Rory tried to reel in the 16-1 chance, but Your Busy kept finding more for David Casey to score by four lengths.

Darwins Fox ran out an authoritative winner of the Laurels Pub And Restaurant Hurdle.

Aerlite Supreme led for much of the race, but once Andrew Lynch asked the question of Henry De Bromhead's 7-4 chance, he shot clear between the last two hurdles, and was eased down to score by four lengths from favourite Sailors Warn.

Martello Tower ran on stoutly to land the Ross Golf Course Maiden Hurdle for Mags Mullins.

Always towards the head of affairs under Danny Mullins, the 4-6 favourite looked to have a battle on his hand when Badgerfoot loomed up at the last, but he stuck on well and came four lengths clear at the line.

The application of a visor worked wonders for Chute Hall as he ended a string of near-misses with victory in the M.D. O'Shea Maiden Hurdle.

Mollyanna led at the last but met the flight wrong, allowing Tom Cooper's 2-1 favourite a chance, and he took it in good style under Robbie Power's urgings, scooting past to score by three-quarters of a length.

Pollywollydoodle's brave effort to make all in the International Hotel Killarney Handicap Hurdle was foiled when Tom Mullins' 20-1 chance Some Hawk blasted past after the last under Alan Crowe to win by three lengths.

Enda Bolger gained some compensation for Love Rory's defeat when On The Fringe bolted up at 1-4 in the Dan Linehan's Bar And B And B Hunters Chase.
