We Have A Dream – a future champion?
The abandonment of last week’s Chepstow meeting has given We Have A Dream an unplanned opportunity to bid for Grade One glory in the rescheduled Coral Future Champions Finale Juvenile Hurdle.
Nicky Henderson’s French import made a big impression on his British debut at Warwick and was just as impressive when stepped up to Grade Two level in the Summit Juvenile Hurdle at Doncaster last month.
Anthony Bromley, racing manager for owners Simon Munir and Isaac Souede, told Press Association Sport: “He wasn’t entered in the Finale over Christmas as it was only 10 days after Doncaster.”
He went on: “We’re now another 10 days down the line, so it’s been three weeks since Doncaster and obviously the race being rearranged has suited him.
“Nicky is very happy with the horse and he’s ready to run. Because he’s won a Grade Two, he doesn’t carry any penalties in a Grade One, which is a positive.
“He’s run in soft ground in France, but how he copes with deep, heavy ground is the unknown.”
We Have A Dream has also been declared to run at Sandown on Saturday, but connections have confirmed him an intended runner at Chepstow, providing the fixture beats the weather at the second attempt. Bromley added: “Hopefully the clerk of the course has called it right and Chepstow goes ahead. “We have declared for Sandown, but that’s just in case they got more rain than they’re expecting at Chepstow overnight.”
