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.
