Dreams come true at last
Whatdreamsrmadeof and Roger Loughran pop the last
The Beneficial mare had been running consistently without winning but made the breakthrough in a first time visor today.
Tom Foley's charge hit the front after the second last and was in command before the final flight.
Whatdreamsrmadeof pulled away in good style to post a seven-length winning margin. The winner was making her 18th career start and had been placed on five previous occasions.
“At long last. She's been knocking on the door for a while,” said Foley.
“Maybe two-and-a-half miles was too far for her as she was getting caught close home.
"They went a good gallop and he was able to settle her in. If they hadn't gone a good pace we would have made it.
“I'd love to get some black-type with her. There's the Listed Solerina Hurdle back here on Sunday week but I'll have to look at the conditions of that first.
“We'll jump a fence with her and she'll probably go chasing soon. She's never seen a fence but I've no worries on that score as she'd jump anything.”
