Suppose D2 reasonably believes the occasion won't arise that D1 commit murder. Suppose the burglary is of an abandoned property that no-one has visited for a long time and they don't think D2 is armed. Can they nevertheless conditionally intend the murder as a secondary party?

Must conditional intent include some specific form of belief that the condition can be met? Or is any act which brings about a result intentional whenever the result is conditionally desired?
