Dream Shot May be headed for the Cornwallis Stakes at Newmarket next month Later putting up a personal best display when runner-up in the Flying Childers Stakes.
Trainer James Tate was delighted with how the Dream Ahead colt finished his race to claim second place, only a length behind the Breeders’ Cup bound A’Ali at Doncaster over five furlongs at the Group 2.
“He ran a blinder. He’s not the simplest. He’s a tiny bit wayward. He arrived home well and that was certainly a career-best effort,” stated that the Newmarket handler.
“I would have thought something similar to the Cornwallis would be on his radar.
“He has an entrance in a Listed race (Harry Rosebery Stakes) at Ayr this week but the Cornwallis are likely.”
Tate disclosed Kyllang Rock is unlikely unless ground condition simplicity, to take up his engagement in the Dubai International Airport World Trophy at Newbury on Saturday.
“He is in good form. He won his conditions race nicely another day (in Nottingham),” he said.
“He does enjoy simplicity from the floor and the forecast looks pretty dry at the moment.
“I’d say he’ll probably reread the weekend before the prediction changed.”
