Jafra made up for a recent fall at Navan as he ran out a ready winner of the Buttevant Maiden Hurdle at Cork.
The Eric McNamara-trained four-year-old was produced to perfection by Robbie Power approaching the second-last flight, and soon skipped clear.
Sent off at 8-1, he pinged the last and was not hard pressed to come home five lengths clear of Hans Crescent.
McNamara said: “He did it very well, after three or four runs over hurdles the experience really stood him in good stead as he jumped brilliantly throughout. Robert gave him a super ride, he was really positive on him.
“We will see what the handicapper does now and probably go for a handicap hurdle with him and we will keep him going throughout the summer.”
