Verdict
The Paul Townend-ridden BE MY DREAM ran well in defeat on handicap hurdle debut before finishing second of 17 running well in defeat to finish 1¾L adrift of West Is Best in Limerick 2m5f contest on heavy ground earlier this month. The six-year-old daughter of Dubai Destination can hold of the challenges of handicap debutantes' Darling Miss from the Gordon Elliott yard and the Noel Meade-trained Harley B.
