Honeysuckle took her unbeaten record to 14 when winning the Chanelle Pharma Irish Champion Hurdle for a third time at Leopardstown.
Henry de Bromhead's brilliant mare powered away from her four rivals under Rachael Blackmore after jumping the second-last flight to secure her 10th Grade One success.
It was a straightforward triumph for the eight-year-old, who will defend her Champion Hurdle crown at Cheltenham next month.

The early pace was set by Heaven Help Us with Zanahiyr, who made a bad mistake at the first hurdle, close up in second place.
There was little change in the order until Blackmore made her move on Honeysuckle after jumping the third-last.
The 1-5 shot moved supremely into the lead and put several lengths between herself and the opposition to quickly put the race to bed.

Honeysuckle went on to score by six and a half lengths from Zanahiyr, with Echoes In Rain staying on for third place.
De Bromhead said: "Brilliant, it's absolutely brilliant. They were great again, the pair of them. I'm delighted.
"She looked great, jumped well I thought throughout - maybe went a little bit left at one of them - but winged the second-last and took off again.
"It felt a long straight after the last, but she was brilliant and we're delighted.
"It was great, aren't we lucky to have her?
"Just the atmosphere here today has been amazing."
