Winner of the Towton Novices' Chase last season, he had failed to score again in five subsequent starts but had shown a glimpse of promise last time out over a trip just short of three miles, with his stamina really coming into play over an extra mile here.
Midlands National winner Milansbar attempted to make all, but racing from a much higher handicap mark, he started to struggle as they turned into the straight, leaving Hainan in front.
West Of The Edge had been smuggled into contention by Will Kennedy, but Baywing (8-1) was going just as well for Ryan Day.
The pair were battling it out at the last but while West Of The Edge got in tight, Baywing absolutely pinged it and shot clear, winning by four lengths.
Former winner Portrait King stayed on for third with Hainan fading to fourth. Favourite Vinnie Lewis was pulled up.
