TEMPLEGATE looks to keep banging in the winners on Saturday.
Read on for our man’s top tips – and don’t forget you can back a horse by clicking their odds in the bet slips below. Good luck!
GERICAULT ROQUE (3.00 Warwick, nap)
He has been knocking on the door with three cracking placed efforts since he switched to fences.
He has improved with every start and jumped really well when finishing a close second at Newbury. He has a nice weight and wasn’t stopping over 3m2f last time so this longer trip should be ideal.
MISTER FISHER (2.05 Kempton, nb)
He will find this a lot easier than the King George he was pulled up in last time. He was coming back from eight months off there so should be fitter too.
He is a multiple winner in this grade and the drop in distance is another plus.
CARIBEAN BOY (3.15 Kempton, treble)
He is yet to fulfil the early promise he showed over fences but this looks a good chance to score. He is a Grade 2 winner at best and can bounce back from his first-fence tumble at Ascot last time.
That was a rare blip in the jumping stakes and this three-mile trip shouldn’t stretch his stamina.
