Making his first appearance since last Christmas, having missed the second half of last season after suffering a setback, the eight-year-old ran with plenty of credit to finish third when defending his title in the JNwine.com Champion Chase.
Murphy is hopeful there is more to come from his charge, but is unsure where he will make his next start.
"He seems to have come out of his race well, I'm very happy with him," said the trainer.
"I'm not sure where he'll go. He'll be given a few entries and we'll see, but we were happy with his run as he'd been off a good while."
Peter Casey remains confident Flemenstar can develop into a serious Cheltenham Gold Cup candidate despite a scintillating victory over the minimum trip on his seasonal reappearance at Navan.
