giving cause for hope of success
"a lofty aspirant"
"two executive hopefuls joined the firm"
"the audience was full of Madonna wannabes"
"a line of people hopeful of obtaining tickets"
"found a hopeful way of attacking the problem"
"had a bright future in publishing"
"the scandal threatened an abrupt end to a promising political career"
"a hopeful new singer on Broadway"
Hopeful of some reward.
