Dream Ahead on target for Haydock assignment

30 August 2011

DREAM Ahead is likely to take his chance in the Group 1 Betfred Sprint Cup at Haydock on Saturday. Trainer David Simcock is hopeful that he can bounce back from a disappointing run in the Prix Maurice de Gheest and recapture the form that saw him land the July Cup in impressive fashion in June. Simcock said: "There were no excuses when he ran in France - it was just disappointing. We'll just hope it was a bad day at the office. "He seems very well in himself. He has done one piece of work and a blow and I am happy with him. "We are looking forward to Haydock, it will be interesting to see how he runs. William Buick will ride." At the five day stage 17 horses remain in the 6f contest including Golden Jubilee winner Society Rock and dual Group 3 scorer, Deacon Blues.
