Cause Of Causes gave the Irish their sixth winner at Cheltenham on St Patrick's Day when storming home in the Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Challenge Cup Handicap Chase.
Victorious in the four-mile National Hunt Chase 12 months ago, Cause Of Cause (9-2) came from way off the pace to turn this three-and-a-quarter-mile test into a procession.
He still had plenty to do at the second-last but made up a massive amount of ground to lead before the final fence. With his stamina not in question, Cause Of Causes pulled clear on the flat to win by 12 lengths from A Good Skin (14-1) for trainer Gordon Elliott and owner JP McManus.
Silvergrove (16-1) was half a length back in third and Knock House (16-1) was fourth.
