Paisley Park lived up to expectations on Cheltenham trials day when landing the Cleeve Hurdle.
Emma Lavelle's charge extended his unbeaten run to seven and the 2019 Stayers' Hurdle winner looks in fine fettle to repeat that trick at The Festival in March after overcoming Summerville Boy on Saturday.
With Aidan Coleman on board, Paisley Park powered home to win by a length and a quarter, with Lisnagar Oscar coming in third.
Coleman timed his run perfectly and admitted afterwards the eight-year-old was a joy to ride again.
He told ITV racing: "Usually I get to the front way too soon, but today I got to the front at the last and I thought that was perfect.
"He's just brilliant, he's gone round in second gear and he's an absolute pleasure. I'm just delighted to be associated with him."
