Evem So was also a good winner of the Irish Oaks.
Mullingar-based Andrew McNamara was among the winners at Limerick on Friday where his good servant Mandarin Monarch won the 2m1f handicap.
Owned by the Galway-based Red Or Black Syndicate and ridden by Joe Doyle, the 10/1 shot was in front early in the straight and made the best of his way home to win by a length and three-quarters from Cabalgata.
“The lads who own are from Galway so we’ll he run in one of the two-mile handicap hurdles at Festival next week. They’d love to have a runner there so that’s the plan. It’s Joe’s first winner for me, he’s very good to deal with.”
Elsewhere, Even So win the Juddmonte Irish Oaks for Ger Lyons and Colin Keane at the Curragh on Saturday.
