Bryan Cooper: rides Shattered Love in this mares hurdle
1 of 1

12.30 Punchestown

Frontline Security Grabel Mares Hurdle (Listed) | 2m2f, 4yo+ | ATR

Let's Dance, in the frame in three Grade 1 events last season, before winning a maiden hurdle at odds of 1-12 at Sligo in May, faces four rivals in this event which commemorates the multiple winning hurdler who was trained by Paddy Mullins, father of Let's Dance's trainer, Willie who landed this event with Whiteout a year ago.

Well-treated by the race conditions, Let's Dance is the only four-year-old in the line-up which also includes the Gordon Elliott - trained Shattered Love, who ran another Mullins mare, the unbeaten Airlie Beach, to half a length in a Grade 3 event at Down Royal 15 days ago.

Winner of a point-to-point, a bumper and a maiden hurdle, the Gigginstown House Stud-owned five-year-old 's trainer Gordon Elliott said: "Shattered Love came out of the Down Royal race very well and is in really good form. We're looking forward to the race and she should give a good account."

Sweet Cherry, who represents Eamon Delany, won a maiden hurdle at Kilbeggan in April before falling on her most recent hurdle start at the Galway festival in July.

Jennys Melody, a three-time winner last year, was beaten a long way at Carlisle last month when returning from a long absence while ten-year-old Ros Brin will be making her first appearance for 720 days.

We're looking forward to the race and she should give a good account
