Gordon Elliott's Festival winner made the perfect start to life over fences at Galway.
Last season's Coral Cup winner made a highly impressive start to his chase career when sauntering clear of his rivals to register a 14l victory in the 2m 2f beginners Chase at Galway.
Sent off the 4/5 favourite, jockey Davy Russel nursed his mount into the race before extending clear over the final two obstacles.
Bookmakers were suitably impressed with most cutting the 8yo into 10/1 (from 16's) for the JLT Novices Chase.
Fellow Festival winners Yorkhill (6/1) and Altior (7/1) lead the market with Diamond King now third best.
