The handler hit the century mark a couple of days earlier than last season, as Mozoltov made a winning debut over fences in the Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Beginners Chase.

Last seen when beating subsequent Drinmore Chase winner Don Cossack at Punchestown back in February, Mozoltov was far from hard pushed in the hands of Davy Russell.

Prominent throughout, the 1/2 favourite was spring-heeled at the last to come home a cosy winner over Mallowney with pace-setting Mount Colah back in third.

Mullins was delighted to send out his 100th success, but also keen to pay tribute to his team.

He said: "I've good clients and they're a fantastic pleasure to train for. I know I'm very lucky and I have to take my hat off to the team at home who are behind everything."

Of Mozoltov, he said: "I was very pleased with him and was delighted we were able to retain him when he went up for sale.

"His form was good all the way through over hurdles and today he looked a good solid jumper and learned as he went along. We wouldn't be afraid to go up in class with him, he can go up in trip and I think he'll handle any ground."
