Horse racing tips TODAY: Templegate Nap and best bets for Thursday with our man looking to keep up hot streak
TOP tipster Templegate is back with his best bets for a busy day of racing today.
His NAP struck up at Ayr on Wednesday as our man fired in yet another winner.
He heads to Ludlow this afternoon for his best bet and is siding with top trainer Nicky Henderson.
Here he runs through every race in the country with a selection in each. Good luck!
OVERPRICED MIXER (2.50 Ludlow, nap)
Nicky Henderson has a nice hurdler on his hands in this double Flat winner who got off the mark at the first time of asking at Kempton last time.
He gave Nico De Boinville a tough time as he was very green and hung left when he lost his irons in the closing stages.
To do that and still win comfortably took plenty of doing and he should be more mature for that first experience over timber.
GO AS YOU PLEASE (1.07 Ludlow, nb)
He’s been nothing but consistent since switching to fences with three seconds and a win from his past four runs.
He had plenty in hand when scoring at Warwick in September and went close at Lingfield latest.
The handicapper has been fair with a 2lb rise in the weights and this trip is ideal to land another success.
PETERBOROUGH (3.45 Taunton, treble)
Evan Williams’ seven-year-old made it three comfortable wins in a row at Sedgefield last time out.
He had the race in the bag a long way from home and the winning margin could have been more than six lengths.
He jumps well and Conor Ring’s 3lb allowances helps to offset some of the rise for that effortless performance. He is more than capable of making it four on the spin.
11.50 Check My Pulse
Decent Flat performer who ran well when winning two runs ago.
12.20 Grand Coureur
Consistent and good effort when second here last time out.
12.52 Flood Defence
Needed comeback over hurdles last time and can do better.
1.22 Millie The Minx
Improved effort when third last time out.
1.57 Monbeg Theatre
Fit and well weighted to win this tricky contest.
2.32 African Dance
Showed lots of promise when third at Ludlow last time out.
Looks much better over fences than he did over hurdles.
3.40 Temple Man
Good run at Kelso last time and repeat would be good enough.
12.35 Shore Shanty
Did well in a bumper last time and can get off the mark.
1.07 Go As You Please (nb)
Consistent and went close again at Lingfield latest.
Looked good when winning at Wetherby last time out.
Was given too much to do when fifth at Bangor latest.
2.50 OVERPRICED MIXER (NAP)
Flat winner who won despite being very green on hurdles debut.
3.25 Lygon Rock
Best over this course and distance, has dropped to winning mark.
Well bred and comes from leading connections.
1.00 Mr Caffrey
Gone close on past two runs, doesn’t need a lot more.
Good on the Flat and should be up to this level over timber.
2.05 Tomorrow Mystery
Landed hat-trick latest and back without a penalty.
Jumped better at Carlisle latest and stays strongly.
Has improved with every run and should be right there again.
3.45 Peterborough (treble)
Just keeps winning and can make it four in a row.
4.15 Frau Georgia
Still well weighted after a run of solid efforts.
Traffic problems last time and good enough to win this.
5.00 Echo Beach
Good run at York latest and has much more to offer.
5.30 Libby Ami
Plenty in hand last time and can score again under a penalty.
Didn’t get run of the race when solid fifth here last time out.
6.30 Absolute Scenes
Improved on debut when third here latest.
