INNOVATIVE, passionate part-time trainer Martin Hassett completed a second career double at Clonmel on Thursday with handicap winner No Grey Area’s (9/2) and Mary Frances (4/1), who easily defeated a former Irish Grand National winner to win the featured Jim Strang & Sons Kilsheelan (Peugeot) Hurdle.

The 2019 Irish Grand National hero Burrows Saint reappeared in the feature but was no match for diminutive Mary Frances, under Rachael Blackmore, who wore him down before the straight and eventually won by all of 45 lengths.
