Let’s Dance completed another four-timer for Willie Mullins with a facile win in the Grade 3 Willis Towers Watson European Breeders Fund Mares Hurdle at Leopardstown.
Let’s Dance went into the lead from flag fall and was chased by Slow Motion, this pair quickly drawing a long way clear of Solita, Daisy’s Gift and Love On Top.
Let’s Dance and Ruby Walsh moved a couple of lengths ahead of Slow Motion as they took the flight in front of the stands and raced off on their final circuit.
The order remained unchanged as Let’s Dance and Slow Motion took the fifth last well clear of Solita, who in turn had a big break on the remaining two.
Slow Motion came to join Let’s Dance at the third last flight and Solita started to close, as the leading trio turned away from the back straight and raced to the second from home.
Let’s Dance on the inside, landed marginally in front as the front pair settled down to fight, drawing away from Solita.
It was Let’s Dance though, who travelled the strongest and went away from Slow Motion, taking the final flight 8 lengths clear and jumping well, before strolling to an impressive victory.
Slow Motion had a good cut at Let’ Dance but had no answers in the straight, finishing a well beaten second, clear of Solita.
Let’s Dance made it 21 winners for Willie Mullins at Leopardstown and Limerick this Christmas, a stunning tally for three and a half days.
