Verdict

Mount Colah, three times a winner over hurdles, will soon be losing his maiden tag over fences judged by his fine debut behind Ballycasey at Navan. Elegant Statesman hasn't had much exposure but is very progressive and has come up against stiff opposition in his two starts over fences and not been disgraced. Mallowney was a very progressive hurdler last season and landed a Listed event at Naas in March so he's entitled to the greatest respect on his chasing bow. MOZOLTOV hasn't had much experience but finished third in the 2012 Champion Bumper at Punchestown and is unbeaten over timber, beating the well regarded Don Cossack at Punchestown in his latest start in February. He's expected to take high order amongst novices over fences and can make a successful start.
