Hope to have drive and energy in the morning (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

dream

Here is my best explanation:

'hope' is the definition.

'drive and energy in the morning' is the subsidiary indication.

'drive' becomes 'dr' (I've seen this in other clues).

'and' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'energy' becomes 'e' (physics symbol as in E=mc2).

'in the morning' becomes 'am'.

'dr'+'e'+'am'='dream'

'to have' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for dream that I've seen before include "Armed (anag)", "Cherished hope or ideal", "Vision - very pleasant person", "Nocturnal fantasy", "Bedroom vision?", "Ambition", "Switch off", "Cherished hope; reverie", "Perfect" and "(Have) vision".)
