Spirit River goes clear at the last hurdle.
Spirit River (11-4 favourite) maintained the cracking run of owner Michael Buckley when turning the Caspian Caviar Handicap Hurdle at Cheltenham into a one-sided affair under Barry Geraghty.
The top weight was in control at the bottom of the hill and maintained a strong gallop all the way to the line to the delight of his trainer Nicky Henderson.
"He goes in that ground and he stays," said Henderson with a rueful smile.
"He's only four and is a lovely big horse. There was a temptation to go chasing but we'll put it off for now. Michael's having a great run and I'm thrilled for him."
Spirit River had finished just out of the money on his first run for the Seven Barrows trainer in a conditional jockeys' race at Newbury.
Henderson added: "It was a boys' race and my two runners came fourth and fifth, but he finished very well.
"That was the only race I could find to get him started and learn something about English racing."
