WORLD OF DREAMS maintained the good recent form of the team with a decisive success on his debut over hurdles in the first race at Fontwell on Friday. This win in the Casumo Bet 10 Get 10 Maiden Hurdle meant a great deal to his owners Ron Huggins and George Tiney, with the win coming in the iconic Turquoise and black colours.
It was pleasing see him carry on the good work after a super first season last winter when he won two bumpers before finishing fifth in a Grade 2 bumper at the Aintree Festival.
He has taken a little time to get the hang of hurdles at home this autumn but all the schooling sessions paid off as he warmed to the task, jumping very fluently at Fontwell, and putting his seal on the race early in the straight.
With victory apparently in the bag World of Dreams then drifted markedly right handed on the run-in but once Rex Dingle straightened him out he still had plenty in hand to hold the renewed challenge of Bari Breeze.
I’ve seen plenty of horses wander towards the stands rail on the steep uphill finish at Fontwell and I put it down to inexperience rather than any waywardness.
World of Dreams should improve mentally and physically for the outing before another run in a novice hurdle under a penalty. Then perhaps we can raise our sights with him.
