Racing tips: Templegate NAPS this awesome Cheltenham winner to bolt up again at 15-2 odds on Saturday
TEMPLEGATE goes in search of some huge winners from Saturday's racing.
Read on for our man's top tips.
MIDNIGHT SHADOW (1.50 Cheltenham, nap)
He took his form to a new level when winning the Paddy Power Gold Cup last time. It was more comfortable than the winning margin of three-quarters of a length because he stumbled after jumping the last.
He then had to get going again up the hill but held on gamely from Protektorat who has franked the form since. He was second in this race 12 months ago and will be right in the mix again.
SCEAU ROYAL (3.00 Cheltenham, nb)
He comes here better than ever after another good run in the Fighting Fifth at Newcastle last time. He was just over a length off the pace after landing an easy victory in the Grade 2 Elite Hurdle at Wincanton and a comeback Kempton success. He ran well in this last year and can score.
TWO FOR GOLD (3.15 Doncaster, treble)
He loves to go from the front so put a line through his unseat in the Topham over the National fences when he was left behind after a farcical start. His form over conventional fences was better last term with a good Warwick win and Listed Kelso third. He’s only 1lb above his success and goes well here.
