In only her second meeting back from suspension Jasmine Cornish was back in the winner’s enclosure … with the latest win coming aboard the Andrew Cameron trained So You Dream at Townsville in an Open Handicap over 1400m … a winner which came back at the delicious odds, for some, of $14.

It was Cornish’s third ride on the seven-year-old gelding and their run of results … all in Open Handicaps, all at Townsville … indicated a natural progression of form.

The first time they finished 5.10 lengths back over 1200m when racing from a wide draw at a starting price of $26. Then they stepped up to 1400m and improved to finish in third sport, just a length off the winner at a starting price of $31.

Those odds were more than halved for their third assignment, again over 1400m. The $14 price still indicated only a rough chance but So You Dream and Cornish made a mockery of that starting price by romping home unchallenged by a decisive three length margin.

So You Dream contested the lead in the early part before Cornish wisely elected to allow the $16 chance Dalon to take up the running as she settled So You Dream in a comfortable second place, some two lengths off the lead.

Dalon’s dash for glory was to be short-lived though as Cornish already had So You Dream back up alongside Dalon as the field approached the home turn, and then quickly past the tiring frontrunner when the field straightened for home.

From there it was the survival of the fittest … and it quickly became apparent that only one contender remained as So You Dream and Cornish laid down the law to the opposition in no uncertain terms, pulling away from the rest with complete authority to win by that widening three length margin.

Credit to Andrew Cameron for having So You Dream good enough to add an eleventh win to his career record in his fifty-first start … and credit to Cornish for a perfect ride.

Cornish also rode two seconds on the day … both for trainer Clinton Taylor.

She finished second on Kinky Dreams in the second race on the card, in her first ride on the filly, and gained another runner-up finish when rounding off the day on The Egyptian, a horse who she had previously ridden to victory.
