WE HAVE A DREAM won at Kempton in September and had Button Moon behind when third over C&D last time. Racing off the same mark today, Bill Muir's charge gets the speculative vote in a typically open sprint. Torres Del Paine had been in fine form on the Polytrack before a below par effort at Goodwood while Hatta Stream is drifting back down toward a winning mark. The Dancing Lord's placed efforts came in plating company and both of Dancing Freddy's all-weather victories came on the Fibresand at Southwell.
