Aspire To Glory entered for debut on Saturday – latest update from Alice Haynes

16 May 2023
Aspire To Glory
Aspire To Glory continues to please me in his homework, and he is just about ready to run, so we’ve entered him at Doncaster in the 18:20 Novice Stakes this Saturday.

However, I must make it clear that I don’t want to run him on soft ground, or ground with soft anywhere in the going description. It’s currently good to soft on the straight track there, and there is a largely dry week forecast. Fingers-crossed it’s ok for him, but he’s a really good mover and I know he will be suited by better going.

It's been a frustrating spring for all trainers with so much rain around. In Newmarket we got the grass gallops open, but then after a week they had to close them again, so we’re all in the same boat.

This horse has done much of his work on the all-weather, which is fine to a point, but I’m keen to do more on the turf with him to give him that extra experience of the surface.

Our horses have been in great form recently, and that’s another reason why I’m keen to run Aspire. If we don’t get the ground this weekend, there are other suitable meetings coming up, with Yarmouth next week an option.

Most importantly he’s a horse we think plenty of and, whatever he does on his debut, he’s sure to improve for the run.
