You Must Know Me gets up to win at Killarney

You Must Know Me was made to work hard to justify odds of 1-2 in the O'Connor O'Shea Solicitors Novice Chase at Killarney.

Henry de Bromhead's eight-year-old has run a couple of decent races over the fearsome Aintree fences, most recently when sixth in the Topham, but he jumped the last behind the front-running Sammy Black and Andrew Lynch had to really get at him to prevail by four lengths.

De Bromhead looked for all the world like following up when Beckwith Star jumped the last in command of the Killarney Outlook Publications Handicap Chase, but Mark Walsh conjured one last surge out of Eric McNamara's 2-1 market leader Hospital, who got up by a short head.

The complexion of the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Beginners Chase changed three from home when leader Liberty's Gift crashed out, allowing Time Please to shoot to the head of affairs.

But he began to tread water on the run-in and 9-4 favourite The Crafty Butcher finished much the stronger to get up in the shadows of the post.

Colour Blue made every post a winning one in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Median Auction Race.

Willie McCreery's filly wasn't that far behind My Titania in a Group Three last autumn and was a solid second at Gowran Park heading into this assignment.

Connor King dictated terms to suit himself on the 5-2 shot and held enough in reserve to repel Davids Park by half a length.

King was at it again when Daredevil Bay (11-4 favourite) landed the Live The Dream With Tote Handicap a shade cosily from Hannah's Magic.

Willie Mullins' smart hurdler Arctic Fire was odds-on for the www.killarneyraces.ie Race but lost out to Shu Lewis (7-2) in a photo, while the Killarney Vintners Handicap went the way of 9-1 chance Truly Delightful.
