McNamara takes home spoils

Trainer Eric McNamara struck at his local track when Questions Answered landed the Annual Members Raceday Handicap Hurdle at Limerick.

The 7/2 favourite hit the front under 7lb claimer Robert Jones before the last and went on to beat Rockers Field by three-and-a-half lengths.

McNamara was at Leopardstown, but his brother and assistant, Jimmy, said: "Questions Answered didn't settle the last day but had the form to win this. He'll go for something similar again next and will go chasing next year, as he jumps very well."

Jockey Shay Barry, fresh from his success in Saturday's Leopardstown Chase on Anothercoppercoast, guided Satu to an easy win in the Greenmount Racing Club Novice Hurdle.

Barry moved the 5/4 favourite ahead before the straight, drawing clear for an easy 16-lengths win over Happy Milly.
