Chris Pea Green (12-1) put himself in line for bigger and better things when coming seven lengths clear in the 32Red Juvenile Hurdle at Huntingdon.
This race for the Chatteris Fen Trophy generally throws up contenders for the Triumph Hurdle and trainer Gary Moore and connections could head that way after the gelding was cut to 33-1 by Paddy Power.
Moore's son Josh hugged the inside rail and took Chris Pea Green's record to three wins from four starts in decisive fashion.
"He won a bumper here that I thought was a donkey race, then I should never have run him on the all-weather," said the trainer.
"I was amazed how easily he won at Lingfield last time but I thought the race was no good. I was worried about his jumping on better ground here, but he has gone and made the biggest idiot ever out of me."
Asked about the Triumph, Moore said: "He's entered and the owners would love to go. Personally, I'd rather go to Liverpool."
Cheltenham has reappeared on the horizon for one-time National Hunt and Denman Chase winner Tricky Trickster, who made a heart-warming return to the fold in the CGA Foxhunter Trial.
Off since sustaining a serious injury in the 2011 Midlands National, the 4-5 favourite defeated three opponents at his leisure.
Tom Jonason, representing trainer Paul Nicholls, said: "He cracked some vertebrae when he fell at Uttoxeter and it was a bit touch and go. It's great to see he has retained some of the old magic and he'll have to run again somewhere to get qualified for the Cheltenham Foxhunter."
