IT’S the Midnight hour in Wincanton’s 12.50.
MYPLACEATMIDNIGHT (nap) look nicely treated for his handicap debut.
He’s come up against some smart novices so far and he moved well for much of the race when fourth over today’s course and distance last month.
The good ground seems the key to him.
WEAKFIELD (1.00 Market Rasen, nb) looks strong in the 1.00 at Market Rasen.
He was sent off favourite for a good Carlisle bumper having won a decent Irish point-to-point.
The distance was too sharp for him and he’s run better since upped to 2m4f over hurdles.
Today’s extra half mile is ideal and I think he’s nicely weighted.
STOP THE WORLD (1.45 Ludlow, treble) got stuck in the mud a bit at Chepstow on Welsh National day.
The better ground and longer trip will suit him well.
Templegate's Treble Selection
NAP – MYPLACEATMIDNIGHT, 12.50 Wincanton: “A winner of a NH flat race at 2m 1f on good ground. Fourth of 8 at 9-2 on his latest outing in a hurdle race over this course and distance in December last year”
NB – WEAKFIELD, 1.00 Market Rasen: “A winner of a point-to-point at 3m. Steps up in trip for his handicap bow.”
TREBLE – STOP THE WORLD, 1.45 Ludlow: “He needed the run on his first outing over timber at Chepstow last month and can improve for that effort.”
