DON’T STOP DREAM­ING!

Sunderland Echo - - Racing -

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.
