Verdict

Glasgow Stakes third ASPIRE TOWER made an impressive start over hurdles at Punchestown and sets the standard, although most of the field have similarly positive profiles, and it's hard to rule any out. A Wave Of The Sea was beaten last time, but looks a solid place option, while Clemencia impressed at Cork, and is not one to underestimate.
