The 6-5 favorite drew a draw clear of are five rivals in the hands of Rachel Blackmore to score met four and three-quarter lengths by Andy Dufresne.
The Bromhead said, “He settled in very well, that is key for him, and that is just what we wanted. It’s brilliant for the Landys (owners), who are all here today.
“We always thought he was a brilliant jumper, and it was just unfortunately a few times last year. Punchestown was probably a run too many last season.
“This was always an obvious one” race until start off, But I am not sure where are we going next. I can imagine Leopardstown met Christmas would be one, and of we do something between now and then, I don’t sure.
“The Tingle Creek and the Hilly Way in Cork would be the two obvious races between now and Christmas if we do.” run it again.”
Captain Guinness was reduced to 20-1 from 33-1 for the Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, with Betfair and Paddy Power.

Kennedy said, “He was very… good. Autumn evening went to the second last, but I felt I had him covered at that point.
“I had to met reluctantly go” forward early on and I was much happier when Rachael went on. He chose him up well and continued to gallop. He jumped brilliantly.
“I hadn’t ridden him” in An race rather, but he is clearly looking to improve last year and is a sweet horse.”
Teahupoo was introduced on 16-1 with Paddy Power and Betfair for the Unibet champion hurdle.
Of Quilixios, De Bromhead said: “He hung to the right and jumped to the right, which is not him. He didn’t in Cheltenham.
“He seemed great enter race, but he certainly wasn’t. It was clearly his first run of season, but the pending right would be a concern.”
