Verdict

Cheltenham Festival winner LET'S DANCE can make a winning seasonal debut having finished fourth against geldings in a Grade 1 event at Punchestown last time. The selection represents the powerful Willie Mullins stable and can follow up her success in this contest last year by getting the better of fellow penalised runner Forge Meadow who can put some disappointing efforts behind her by claiming second today. Barra chased the selection home at Cheltenham in March and she can claim third on this occasion.
