The 5yo daughter of Danehill Dancer was last seen finishing a disappointing fourth in the Irish Champion Hurdle at Leopardstown in January behind Hurricane Fly, when she was sent off the second favourite at 11/4.
Having her first start on the level since finishing second in a 1m 2f Handicap at Leopardstown in November, the bay mare hit the front just under two furlongs from home before keeping on well to score in comfortable fashion.
The front three went eleven lengths clear of the fourth placed horse who was the 25/1 shot Whisper Gently.
Kris Weld, son of the winning trainer, said afterwards: "She is a great mare and has been a great servant.
"She is a Listed winner already on the flat and we will be looking for more blacktype with her now although we have no specific targets.
"She is entered in a lot of different Listed and Group races."
The win of Unaccompanied rounded of a great day for punters as she was the sixth winning favourite from the eight races. (DM & AM)
