Raceday LIVE Preview

Aspire To Glory hasn't been seen since making his handicap debut at Ffos Las in July where he finished 6th from 10 runners. As a result of that run, he was dropped 2lb in the handicap ratings from 59 to 57.

He's set to encounter very different conditions today at Kempton, which the Alice Haynes team are hopeful will give him a better chance of showing what he's been displaying at home in his recent work.

It's his first visit to the all-weather track, where he'll also be stepping up in trip to seven furlongs for the first time, which again is another factor we're hopeful can unlock some improvement as he's just been a little too keen in his races over sprint distances so far.

Jockey Kieran O'Neill retains the ride, so we'll be looking to catch up with him to get his thoughts before and after the race which you'll be able to catch on our Twitter @Coral.

Latest words from trainer Alice Haynes:

"Aspire To Glory looks to have appreciated that bit of extra time off since his last run and we identified this race a while back as being one that stood out for him. We think he should be running really well in this, and we look forward to seeing what he’s capable of."
