Chase

(dreams)
Folklore interpretations say that if you are looking at a chase or participating in it, you will have a comfortable old age. Although this may be comforting, there is a more realistic understanding of this activity in a dream. For example, if you are being chased maybe you are running away from and trying to escape things that are frightening and unpleasant (possibly your own habits and negative behaviors). If you are doing the chasing, it may be that you are expressing some aggressive feelings toward others or are pursuing a very difficult goal. On the deepest level, if a stranger is chasing you it may represent your chasing a part of yourself, the unconscious attempts to catch up with the conscious in order for you to become more aware of yourself and your own multidimensional nature.

With a bit of number crunching it was possible to come up with the table (right), which shows for small and for larger fields (eight runners or fewer and nine-plus runners) the percentage of chases that were won by horses who led, or disputed the lead from the early stages, and the percentage that were won by chasers that made all, and these stats are presented on a month-by-month basis from October through to April.
