Trained by Willie Mullins, the French import unseated after the last when leading on his Irish debut at Thurles last month.
Sent off the 4/7 favourite (opened at 10/11 with Paddy Powers this morning) to make amends today, he made all under Paul Townend and went clear before the last to record a comfortable fourteen length victory.
Willie Mullins said afterwards: "He did everything well and he is a nice chaser in the making.
"He won’t be going to Cheltenham, he will be kept at home and we will concentrate on chasing with him.”
Rocky Creek landed the odds in the Grade 2 Sodexo Prestige Reynoldstown Novices' Chase at Ascot this afternoon.
