Henn See completed a treble on the day for Willie Mullins, and a double for Paul Townend, when claiming the concluding beginners chase at Clonmel this afternoon. Mount Frisco cut out the running in the two-miler, for horses rated 116 or less over hurdles, but gave way going to the second last as Henn See, Jet Setting Johnny and Ask Anything came to fight it out.

It was a battle between Henn See and Jet Setting Johnny going to the last with the former getting a good jump to assert and go on for a length-and-a-quarter win.

Ask Anything, 11/8 joint-favourite with the winner, stayed on to claim the runner-up spot.

The winner had been second on his last outing at Wexford and Townend said:- "The benefit of the run in Wexford probably stood to him and those races are ideal for him.

"He is a big striding horse but maybe he is just so genuine that when he comes off the bridle he has nothing left to give. You have to preserve him and it is a matter of getting him as far as you can on the bridle.

"It is good to get a win in these colours as his owner Mike Hankin, of Brown Advisory Group, is now sponsoring me."
