Dream has late-season return aimHeadlines
Jessies Dream

Jessies Dream will not be seen in action until the back-end of the National Hunt season.

Gordon Elliott's classy chaser missed the whole of last term with a tendon injury and while he is back in work, the problem will keep him off the track until the spring.

Owned by David Johnson, he finished second to Bostons Angel in the 2011 RSA Chase, but has not run since.

Having won the Drinmore as a novice, his class is not in doubt, but he will turn 10 in January.

Elliott was preparing him for last season's Irish Hennessy, but pulled the plug a few days before the race after a lacklustre piece of work.

The trainer said: "Jessies is back in work. We'll aim towards getting him back for the end of the season, hopefully.

"It's the tendon he strained last year that's keeping him off. It never happens to the bad ones.

"He's scanned clear though, he's back in work and looks great, so hopefully we can get him back at the end of the season."
