DANCERS DILEMMA, runner-up to Busted Tycoon in a handicap at the Galway Festival, made too many mistakes when fancied on a return visit last month. His overall form gives him the edge and Ruby Walsh rides him for the first time. The Mooch won a Wexford bumper in July and made an encouraging debut over timber when staying on behind Asockastar at Listowel. There's more to come and he's an obvious threat while Cebuano had some strong form in bumpers and has been going well on the Flat this summer. Winning point-to-pointer Leahs Melody was engaged in a beginners' chase at Sligo yesterday and that's where her future lies.
