Racing tips: Templegate NAPS 5-1 course specialist plus best bets for St Leger at Doncaster and Irish Champion Stakes
TEMPLEGATE tackles an absolutely massive day of racing looking to bash the bookies with more brilliant winners.
The big race is the St Leger at Doncaster, where Hurricane Lane is the clear favourite.
And there is top class action from Ireland too in the Irish Champion Stakes – we have tips for that card too.
Read on for the top selections on Saturday.
HOCHFELD (2.35 Chester, nap)
He loves the Roodee with two wins and three places from five visits, including an excellent third in the Chester Cup in May. He’s tumbled down the weights despite some fair runs and can overcome his wide draw.
LANEQASH (3.00 Doncaster, nb)
He put up a career best when second in the Group 2 Hungerford Stakes at Newbury four weeks ago. The effort came despite ten months off the track and was just his fourth run. Sometimes horses “bounce” to bad form when running well after a long break but he’s had time to get over those exertions. Trainer Roger Varian is in good form and there should be improvement to come at this early stage of his career.
LUSAIL (2.20 Doncaster, treble)
He has stepped into this Group 2 level with two stylish victories at Newmarket and York. He was very impressive when taking the Gimcrack on the Knavesmire. Those wins came over six furlongs but he has scored over this trip and looks well capable of staying.
1.15 Thunder Legend
Good win at Hamilton latest and on fair handicap mark.
Has a strong record here and went well at Haydock last time.
2.20 Lusail (treble)
Impressive in the Gimcrack and can handle this longer trip.
3.00 Laneqash (nb)
Good comeback second at Newbury and the clear form pick.
3.35 Hurricane Lane
Irish Derby winner who could even improve for this trip.
4.05 Dark Jedi
Close third in hot company at York and still on fair weight.
5.10 Royal Fleet
Three wins already and not beaten far at York last time.
