Easy win for Far Away
Far Away So Close had little difficulty in disposing of his sole rival New Phase in the PricewaterhouseCoopers Chase at Limerick
The race was reduced to a match after all the other declared runners - Benefficient, Tofino Bay and Rockshandy - were late withdrawals.
That left Far Away So Close long odds-on to take the Grade Three honours and, apart from an early error, he did so with ease.
With Davy Russell switching from Tofino Bay to Paul Nolan's runner, the 1-5 shot blew New Phase away to win by 42 lengths.
"He has been a great money-spinner. Hopefully he will be OK as he has had leg trouble in the past," said Nolan's brother and assistant, James.
"Davy said he wasn't having a cut at his fences. He would prefer more of an ease in the ground."
Ruby Walsh was allowed the run of the race on Indevan, who pulled out extra after doing the donkey work in the Fergus O'Toole Memorial Novice Hurdle.
All five had every chance with two flights left to jump, but the Willie Mullins-trained Indevan (5-4 favourite) would not be denied and ran out a two and three-quarter lengths winner from Lots Of Memories.
"No one wanted to make it, it was just one of those tactical races," said Walsh.
"I didn't want to make it but he jumped away nicely and he jumped well.
"I couldn't believe he got beaten at Galway the last day but everything went right for him today. The ground is as quick as he would want it."
Eddie O'Connell continued his rich vein of form with an enterprising ride to win on Roja Dove (7-1) in the Dunraven Arms Hotel Hurdle.
With his confidence sky high after a big-priced treble at Tramore on Thursday, O'Connell dictated affairs on the Ken Condon-trained filly to beat Hurricane Ridge by three lengths.
O'Connell said: "Nothing wanted to go on so I decided to bounce out quick. She is fit from the Flat and she jumps well."
The Timmy Hyde-trained Emily Gray (10-1) capitalised on the last-flight fall of Piece D'Or to open her account in the McMahons.ie Building Provider & Home Improvements Mares Maiden Hurdle under David Casey.
The jockey doubled up on Pass The Hat (12-1) for Arthur Moore in the STL Logistics EBF Beginners Chase.
Adrian Heskin got the better of McCoy on Montrel when partnering Rodger Sweeney's Danequest (16-1) to victory in the Oakbruce Properties Handicap Hurdle.
