DON’T STOP DREAMING!
Dreaming Time seems to have found her groove on the all-weather and she can keep up the good work by making it a hat-trick in the Bet totetrifecta At betfred.com Handicap at Chelmsford tomorrow.
The three-year-old won one of her three starts for initial trainer Hugo Palmer but a change of scenery appears to have had the desired effect as she has now triumphed in two of her four starts for James Tate.
Admittedly it looked slow-going on her first two outings, but the change back to artificial surfaces last month has seemingly worked the oracle as Dreaming Time struck gold at Lingfield at the beginning of October before adding a Wolverhampton triumph three weeks later.
She defied a 4lb hike on that second occasion when finding generously under pressure to win by a short head, with the switch back from a mile perhaps not totally in her favour.
Tate steps back up to a mile here and while she has another 2lb to contend with, Dreaming Time can put up a good show.
Final Treat can gain that all-important first success in the Bet toteexacta At betfred.com Fillies’ Novice Stakes. As an Acclamation half-sister to Finsceal Beo and Frozen Power, Final Treat would certainly enhance her credentials if she can win on the track.
She has gone close on her first couple of starts but the experiences should not be lost on her and this looks a nice opportunity to add a victory to her tally.
She’s Royal can make it fourth-time lucky in the 32Red Casino Novice Auction Stakes at Southwell.
Bryan Smart’s runner is clearly nothing special but she has shown some ability in her three starts to date.
