Chigorin finished with a flourish to land the Lacey's Plumbing & Heating Supplies Maiden Hurdle.
A E90,000 Tattersalls Derby Sale graduate and out of a half-sister to Grade 1 winner Abbyssial, the Shantou five-year-old was a fine third on his sole point-to-point start when in the care of Pat Doyle.
Again third on his debut for current connections at Naas last month, the Henry de Bromhead-trained victor raced mainly in fourth this afternoon.
Switched to the outer away from the second last, the Peter Davies-owned gelding was ridden away from the final flight and stayed on powerfully under Rachael Blackmore, going on to register a three-and-a-half length success.
"We're delighted with that. He stepped forward nicely from Naas, we thought he wanted three miles and he's proved us right," Robbie Power, representing de Bromhead, commented.
