Forecast

Aspire Tower (9/4), Sea Ducor (11/4), Instant Return (7/2), Wolf Prince (8/1), Weather Alert (12/1), Yafordadoe (14/1), Gealach (14/1), Lightsider (25/1), Majority Share (25/1), Top Line Tommy (50/1), Morph (50/1), Little Stone (50/1), Sean Says (100/1), Jess's Corner (100/1), Futurum Regem (100/1), Cosmic Jazz (100/1)

Verdict
With the majority of those to have run over hurdles showing little this looks a decent opportunity for ASPIRE TOWER to make a winning start over timber. The best Flat performer in the race by some distance, Henry De Bromhead's new recruit will surely take plenty of beating providing a clear round of jumping. The biggest threat may prove to be Instant Return who has two solid hurdles efforts in the books already this month although Sea Ducor is another of the more interesting hurdles debutants after winning well latest.
