The 4yo son of Heron Island was sent off the 4/5 favourite after impressively winning his maiden hurdle at Fairyhouse recently.
He led the field after the third flight and asserted before the second last.
Henry De Bromhead said afterwards: "That was good and I’m delighted with it. Andrew said that he was a bit hard to get around the bends in front.
"He is real galloping horse and the faster they go the better he is. He is a big raw 4yo and he is a real horse for the future and fences. We will give him a break now and probably bring him back for Leopardstown at Christmas.
"Hopefully there won’t be a problem with him going left handed there. He is not entered in the Royal Bond and I think he will be better on better ground."
Sean Graham’s have the winner at 25/1 for the Supreme Novices Hurdle at Cheltenham in March while Boylesports go 33/1.
