MOZOLTOV was third in the Champion Bumper at Punchestown in April having won at Thurles and Limerick earlier. He's a potentially useful recruit to hurdling and may condemn Sizing Gold to a third successive runner's-up spot. Henry De Bromhead's five-year-old having found Seefood too good at Fairyhouse and Don Cossack almost 10 lengths superior at Navan. Providing the market principals complete, the others are likely to be playing for places. John Kiely's mare Clara Bel La has been placed on the Flat and in a bumper and was fourth to Champagne Fever on her second run over hurdles at Cork. She may do best of the remainder.
