Dream Ahead in good shape
10 July 2011
DAVID Simcock has reported Dream Ahead to be in good fettle after his Darley July Cup heroics at Newmarket yesterday.
Jockey Hayley Turner booted home the Diktat colt for a third Group 1 triumph - and secured herself a first ever victory at the highest level.
The Trillium Place trainer reported: "Dream Ahead has come out of the race absolutely fine. He grubbed up on Saturday night and trotted up with no problems this morning.
"We went through a lot of emotions yesterday, the main one being relief. I was just very proud of the horse.
"I've been quite protective of him, especially when people have questioned his rating and everything.
"But this win has only enhanced his reputation and I would like to think there is more to come.
"The Prix Maurice de Gheest is very much in our thinking for him next.
"I would just like to say thanks to all of the team at Trillium Place and also lots of congratulations go out to Hayley Turner. She couldn't have done a better job."
