TEMPLEGATE goes in search of some big winners on another big Saturday of racing.
Read on for our man’s top tips as he looks to keep up a hot run of form – and check out his Breeders’ Cup tips for Friday night too.
FARHAN (2.40 Doncaster, nap)
He improved for stepping up to this trip when second to classy Siskany at Newmarket last time. Some cut in the ground suits and he looks capable of better.
HOGAN’S HEIGHT (2.15 Aintree, nb)
He won this race over the big fences in style two years ago and jumped round in the Grand National when the four-mile trip was simply too far. He is fit from a spin over hurdles and is only 4lb higher than his 2019 success.
BOARDMAN (1.25 Doncaster, treble)
He ran a belter when a close-up fifth in a hot sprint at York last time. He finished well and this extra furlong should be ideal.
