Racing tips: Templegate NAPS Epsom Derby hero Adam Kirby to strike again in style at Ascot
TEMPLEGATE goes in search of some big winners on an absolutely massive Saturday of racing.
Scroll down for our man's top tips for all the racing in the UK – and don't forget to take in his selections for Longchamp too.
RIVER NYMPH (3.50 Ascot, nap)
He can win another hot Ascot handicap for Clive Cox and Adam Kirby. They teamed up to win the 27-runner Victoria Cup with this game four-year-old in May. He’s only been out twice since and comes here a fresh horse after a decent comeback in a Newbury Listed contest last time. He relishes this trip and is only 4lb higher than that last success.
MOTHER EARTH (2.55 Newmarket, nb)
She was an impressive 1,000 Guineas winner here in May and she hasn’t done much wrong since. She went close in the Lowther on the July course before taking a French Group 1. She should have added to her tally in the red-hot Matron Stakes at Leopardstown as she was coming with a winning run only to be badly hampered. Ryan Moore can steet her home here.
HURRICANE IVOR (2.05 Ascot, treble)
He is going from strength to strength and got a deserved change of luck when winning the Portland Handicap at Doncaster. He more than matched that form when taking the Group 3 World Trophy at Newbury last time. He is the one to beat on this drop in class.
1.10 Al Nafir
Cost over a million quid and can make a winning start.
Consistent and another good effort at York last time out.
Listed winner who went close in the Mill Reef at Newbury latest.
2.55 Mother Earth (nb)
Guineas winner who hasn’t done much wrong since.
Yard won this last year and he’s bred to be decent.
4.05 Crema Inglesa
Plenty in hand when scoring at Sandown last time out.
4.40 Flame Of Freedom
Can land hat-trick with William Buick in the saddle.
