Verdict

Winning bumper DANCERS DILEMMA didn't appear to enjoy being sent over hurdles at Leopardstown but the experience should have done him good and this doesn't look much of a race. He should be good enough as the useful Flat performer Blissful Moment hasn't distinguished himself in five starts over hurdles. To The Sky has shown the occasional glimmer of form over timber though his recent runs haven't be inspiring so the newcomer A Word Apart could prove more of a threat as he had winning form on the level.
