Chacun Pour Soi bounced back to form to complete a hat-trick of victories in the Ladbrokes Dublin Chase at Leopardstown.
Willie Mullins' runner was on a retrieval mission after proving a bitter disappointment when last in the Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown in December.
However, back on familiar ground at Leopardstown, Chacun Pour Soi comprehensively reversed the form with Tingle Creek winner Greaneteen as he strolled to victory under Paul Townend.
The 4-7 favourite was content to take a lead from Dunvegan in the early stages, while Bryony Frost elected to take the inside route in Greaneteen, racing alone throughout the Grade One heat.
He was clearly in trouble at the third-last though as Chacun Pour Soi started to move through the gears, with Dunvegan and Captain Guinness trying to go with him.
But Chacun Pour Soi was just too good and he was well clear coming to the last, with a fine leap sealing an impressive return to winning ways.
Dunvegan was second with Captain Guinness third, with Greaneteen dropping right away to finish last of the five runners.
Sir Gerhard took his unbeaten record over jumps to two as he made all the running to win the Tattersalls Ireland Novice Hurdle.
The Willie Mullins-trained seven-year-old only made his debut over the smaller obstacles on this course over Christmas, but was able to land the odds despite being novicey at times.
Sent off the 8-13 favourite, Sir Gerhard - winner of the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham last year - was in front Three Stripe Life from flagfall and nothing else got into the race.

A couple of errors down the back straight gave Three Stripe Life half a chance, but he could not capitalise. The second-last obstacle was omitted due to the low sun and Sir Gerhard sealed victory by jumping the last much better than his nearest pursuer.
Paul Townend was able to take it easy on Sir Gerhard who went on to score by six lengths. Colonel Mustard was the same distance away with a good effort in third.
Galopin Des Champs dominated his rivals to land a spectacular success in the Ladbrokes Novice Chase.
Willie Mullins' charge was sent off the 4-9 favourite after an impressive chasing bow at the Dublin track over Christmas - and victory barely looked in doubt from a distance out in the two-mile-five-furlong Grade One feature.
Galopin Des Champs was settled in second by Paul Townend with French Dynamite setting the pace and his task was slightly eased when Capodanno unseated his rider at the fifth before Beacon Edge fell at the next fence.
Fury Road then made a terrible error at the fourth-last, but Galopin Des Champs was already firmly in control and while Master McShee and fellow Mullins inmate Gaillard Du Mesnil tried to make a race of it, the winner was in another league.
A clever leap at the last sealed victory, with Master McShee keeping on admirably to finish a nine-length second, with Gaillard Du Mesnil a further five lengths back in third.
The 9/2 favourite Birchdale, with UL student Mark McDonagh on board, was the winner in the Bulmers Secret Orchard Leopardstown Handicap Chase, finishing ahead of Foxy Jacks and Winter Escape.
