Horse racing tips: Templegate looks to back up big Cheltenham winners with more on Saturday
FRESH OFF a huge Cheltenham, Templegate turns his eye to Saturday's racing.
Read on below to view his picks.
MIGHTY THUNDER (3.35 Uttoxeter, nap)
Lucinda Russell is a top trainer of stayers and this eight-year-old loved the four-mile test when winning the Edinburgh National by 20 lengths at Musselburgh last time. He was just getting going at the line so this slog will be right up his street.

That was his handicap chase debut and there’s every chance he can pull out more at what looks a very tasty price.
ST BARTS (2.25 Uttoxeter, nb)
He was impressive when getting the job done at Newbury last time. He is proven over this trip but should get further, which you need for this stamina-sapping track.
He’s had a nice break since that victory and looks open to improvement on just his third spin over fences.
NIGHTBOATTOCLYRO (2.40 Kempton, treble)
He is getting better with every run and landed a winning hat-trick at Wetherby last month.
He wasn’t stopping at the end of 2m4f there and should have no problem with the longer trip on a flat track. There could be more to come and jockey Jack Tudor’s 3lb claim will come in handy.
12.30 Forever Des Long
Went close last time and this looks a very winnable race.
1.05 Night Of Sin
Coming down the weights and best form would be good enough.
1.35 Belle De Manech
Takes a big drop in class and fair mark for handicap debut.
2.10 Ermyn’s Emerald
Promise on both runs since a break and more to come.
2.45 Finnegan’s Garden
Consistent and plenty of good form over course and distance.
Lots in hand at Taunton last time and this isn’t any tougher.
3.55 Lily The Pink
Best form here and went close at Exeter latest.
Walkover as he’s the only horse who’s turned up!
1.30 Flic On Voyou
Happy back over hurdles and trip and ground suit well.
Plenty in hand at Leicester latest so can strike again.
2.40 Nightboattoclyro (treble)
Has been impressive this season and can land the four-timer.
3.15 Falco Blitz
Battled well to score at Southwell last time out.
3.50 Jeremy Pass
Has run well at this level and solid effort at Donny last time.
4.25 Ebony Gale
Good win at Taunton latest and repeat would be good enough.
5.05 Walking On Air
Well bred and should know his job on this debut.
1.50 Steal A March
This sort of trip and track should be right up his street.
2.25 St Barts (nb)
Easy winner last time and open to lots of improvement.
Returned to form when returned to hurdles last time out.
3.35 MIGHTY THUNDER (NAP)
Good Edinburgh National win and stamina test ideal.
Needed comeback second at Huntingdon last time and spot on now.
4.45 Lady Cylla
Good second last time and has moved yards since.
5.15 Duhallow Lad
Goes well over this course and distance and won’t be far away.
5.50 No Word Of A Lie
Improved on debut when second at Exeter last time out.
2.00 Dreams Of Home
Kept up his 100% record in style at Carlisle last time.
2.35 Skiddaw Valleys
Keeps hitting the crossbar and capable of better.
Consistent, won again last time and has more to offer.
Has the best form on offer and big chance if fit on comeback.
4.20 Pay The Piper
Keeps winning and another 8lb rise may not stop him.
4.55 Leverock Lass
Went close here last time and cheekpieces should help.
Went well on debut and should improve for that experience.
Has shown her best form over this course and distance.
5.30 Al Shoughor
Showed promise before break and much more to come.
6.00 Power Over Me
Had plenty in hand when scoring over C&D last time out.
Knocking on the door and good enough to win this.
Back from a long break but much the best horse in this.
7.30 Quickstep Lady
Solid form and big chance if taking to this track.
8.00 Carey Street
Likes this trip and track so won’t be far away.
Will prefer this track to Southwell and looks a big price.
