Let's Dance (1/1), Karalee (9/2), Forge Meadow (6/1), Lady Buttons (6/1), Dawn Shadow (16/1), Polar Present (16/1), Gracemount (16/1), Mega Mindy (50/1), Mary Frances (50/1)

Verdict

Intriguing mares' hurdle with possibly Polar Present, Karalee, Mary Frances and Lady Buttons contesting the lead in the early stages. The Willie Mullins-trained LET'S DANCE won this contest last year comes here as the one to beat. Last time out winner Forge Meadow and UK-raider Lady Buttons are solid each way options.
  1. Let's Dance
  2. Forge Meadow
  3. Lady Buttons
