Running in a match against JP McManus' enigmatic Mr Mole, Harry Fry's stable star romped to a facile ten-length victory having jumped well in general.
Fry, a former assistant to Paul Nicholls, was delighted to get a prep run in before Cheltenham as this was only his second run over fences.
Ridden as usual by Noel Fehily, the eight-year-old was cut to 6/1 from 9s as Fry confirmed he will go straight to the festival from here.
Fry said: "Noel's happy so we're happy. I can't emphasise enough how much he turns the corner from January onwards - that'll pretty much put him spot on for Cheltenham."
Alan King is hoping to be close to getting back into the rhythm that saw him rattle in winners pre-Christmas before he was forced to shut down his yard for January due to a virus.
The Barbury Castle trainer was very pleased to see the complex but talented First Mohican win at Doncaster on his hurdling debut. The high profile and green recruit from Sir Henry Cecil's flat yard will most likely have one more run before lining up in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham.
Also at Doncaster, Nicky Henderson's Vaniteux put 12 lengths on the field and further strengthened the champion trainer's already formidable hand in the Supreme Novices' Hurdle. Henderson already has Jossies Hill and Royal Boy in the top five in the market in what looks an open renewal in the festival opener.
