Horse racing tips: Templegate's NAP can make it back-to-back wins at Southwell

TEMPLEGATE is hoping to bank a few quid on Friday ahead of a huge weekend of racing.

Here, he reveals his top picks for today's action.

THREE C’S (7.15 Southwell, nap)

He won an apprentice race over this course and distance last time so returns from the same handicap mark.

This contest is no stronger and he looks hard to beat.

RITCHIE VALENS (3.00 Lingfield, nb)

He was just hitting top gear over shorter here last time. Going up in trip looks a wise move with talented 5lb claimer Laura Pearson back in the saddle.

KAP AUTEUIL (2.42 Fakenham, treble)

He relished dropping back to this trip when a close second at Plumpton last month. A repeat of that in this modest contest can get the job done.


12.30   Velvet Vista     

Landed hat-trick of wins in style and can cope with 7lb weight rise.

1.00     Heaven Forfend          

Wind op can get him going on debut for Michael Bell.

1.30     Majestic Tejaan          

Knocking on the door and good second at Wolver latest.

2.00     Big Impression 

Expensive buy who can win this match on debut.

2.30     And The New  

Fit from a jumps win and has more to offer on the Flat.

Ran on strongly over shorter here last time and can strike.

Two good wins and every chance of making it a hat-trick.

Had plenty in hand when scoring over course and distance latest.


1.20     Malpas 

Was cruising to victory when falling late on at Catterick.

1.50     Protektorat     

Looks on a different level to these rivals.

2.20     Artic Mann      

Won well over C&D and will be happy back over this trip.

2.50     Duc De Grissay            

Unseated at the last when winning here last time, can bounce back.

3.20     Serious Ego     

Winner for Gordon Elliott and struck for this yard at Haydock latest.

3.50     Heartbreak Kid            

Good second on chase debut and more to offer in handicaps.

4.22     Kalabaloo        

Prolific in points and proven in better races than this.

4.52     Arthur’s Seat   

Good second at Musselburgh and can take a step forward.


1.42     Blame The Game        

2.12     Devious Dicks Name   

Won a similar contest last time and should go close.

2.42     Kap Auteuil (treble)    

Went close at Plumpton and this isn’t a strong race.

3.12     Captain Morgs 

Going well and this longer distance should be ideal.

3.42     Sir Jack Yeats   

Continues in good form and has shown best form here.

4.15     Getting Closer 

Been winning in the pointing field and should go close.

4.45     Falloway Dubreau       

From good yard and shown promise in points.

Plenty in hand when winning over course and distance latest.

Has gone well on this Fibresand before.

Back to best when winning latest and off same mark.

Solid run at Kempton and has gone well here before.

8.15     Blowing Dixie  

Had plenty in hand when winning here 12 days ago.
