The listed race was a bonus for the track having being rescheduled from last week's lost meeting at Sandown, and it went the way of the well-backed 7/4 favourite.
Held up just off the pace and out wide by David Casey, the six-year-old went to the lead jumping the second last when the long-time prominent Flementime made an error that ended her challenge.
Oliver Sherwood's Mischievous Milly (4/1) emerged as the main threat and Glens Melody edged right jumping the last causing mild interference to the runner-up.
The winning distance was three quarters of a length in the end, with Harry Fry's Hidden Identity just a neck further away in third.
Casey said: "She's a real good traveller and she stays well, she's a grade one winner and a good filly.
"It was a brave decision to keep her in training but they've been rewarded with a nice victory today."
Sky Bet left the winner unchanged at 16/1 for the OLBG David Nicholson Mares' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival. Stablemate Quevega remains the evens favourite.
Mullins told At The Races: "The key to her is the ground as she does appreciate some cut and I'll look to get her out again somewhere before it starts to dry up."
