Let's Dance extended her winning run to five in the Trull House Mares' Novices' Hurdle and gave Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh their fourth win of day three at the Cheltenham Festival.
Walsh kept the 11/8 favourite towards the back of the field for much of the race but looked in a relaxed moood coming to the final two fences.
Verdana Blue led going into the straight but after a a clean leap from the Rich Ricci-owned five-year old the result was never in doubt. She galloped up the hill gallantly to win by two and thee-quarter lengths from Barra, with Dusky Legend a neck behind in third.
That victory continued the success for the Irish at Cheltenham today and equalled a record for the most Irish-trained winners on a single day at the Festival.
Willie Mullins said after the race:
"We thought this might be the weakest race, she can probably run an even longer trip. When we saw the rating of the horses we were confident.”
